WELCOME TO DIY KITCHEN DIARIES 

Virtual** and In-Person Vegan Cooking Classes with Chef Afi Green

These classes are designed to be just as fun for the cooking enthusiast who wants to be a part of every step, as it is for the first timer who's happier observing and assisting (or taste testing!) These classes are taught in-home or online with a minimum of 6 people for  a virtual class. 

So grab your apron and a refreshing beverage and let's get cooking. All classes virtual and in-person are booked based on your schedule and as long as my calendar is open the class can be booked. All in-person classes are held in your home unless you book a venue for the class.
