Get ready to be inspired with these plant protein packed burgers. When you choose to have a burger, it should satisfy your craving for a hearty, simple meal. This one of a kind menu will get your creative juices flowing, and you’ll find new alternatives to explore when making a meat free patty and unique condiments to adorn them with.

Each class is built upon techniques, with multiple recipes covering the various techniques. Although students will not have hands on experience with each recipe, they will learn techniques for each and be able to taste all completed dishes at the end of the class. All students will leave with a complete recipe packet at the end of the class.

Similar to a concert or sporting event, a​ll NGI programs are date-specific​. Therefore, all single-session classes, multi-day programs, and dinners are non-refundable and cannot be rescheduled to a later date. If you are unable to attend a class or dinner, you are welcome to send someone in your place.
