Discount Profile: Cooking Classes from Marni Wasserman

Care of John Graber I attended a Marni Wasserman cooking class a couple of years back and it changed my dietary habits for the better.  I was already eating a healthy vegan diet with an emphasis on whole and raw foods, but she took me to the next level with her inspiring presentation.  She helped me wrap my head around using more super foods which previously I had been a little intimidated to try. Marni’s cooking classes are fun and non-judgemental.  She does a great job of sharing her vast knowledge of vegan nutrition through her presentation.  Questions are encouraged and Marni replies honestly. On top of this, you’re going to leave Marni’s feeling satisfied and full of a wide variety of healthy vegan food which you helped to prepare through her hands-on educational techniques. And if you’re a TVA member, you get a very generous 20% off the price of each class! I highly doubt there’s a better way to learn some new vegan cooking techniques.

You can hang out with friends (two legs or four), work, study, enjoy free WiFi, or just relax…all in the company of furry felines.” All cats at the café will be from TEAM Cat Rescue, a Toronto-based non-profit, volunteer and foster based cat rescue organization. The goal of the café is not only to provide cat-lovers with the perfect hang out spot, but to also be another route to adoption for Toronto’s cats in need of a loving home. “Our city is also overflowing with kind, generous people who would love nothing more than to spend time enjoying the company of some sweet cats. Kitty Cat Café wants to bring them together, in what will be one of the most exciting new ventures to hit Toronto’s already-vibrant café culture.” Kitty Cat Café will offer special events “like Cat’s… Read More
