Join Compassionate Cooks’ founder Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, author of the Joy of Vegan Baking, in her monthly fun-filled Vegetarian Cooking Classes that celebrate healthful and humane eating!

In our popular tofu/tempeh class, you will learn the difference between silken, soft, firm, extra firm, and super firm tofu; discover the magic of frozen tofu; and learn the secret behind perfect tempeh!

Committed to using mostly local, seasonal, organic ingredients, Compassionate Cooks empowers people to make informed food choices and delicious, plant-based meals through cooking classes, DVDs, podcasts, and more.
