A Note From Heather


I’m so happy that you’re curious about Good Food Cooking School. Like me, you’re either sure (or you suspect) that you have food allergies or sensitivities. Or, maybe someone you cook/bake for has issues with animal products and/or gluten-containing foods. Or you simply just want more ideas, recipes, and resources to confidently cook and bake, with and without recipes, in the comfort of your own kitchen.

Well, let me tell you: you don’t have to compromise on taste, tradition, or normalcy due to dietary preferences any more.

Good Food Cooking School provides ALL of the courses, recipes, and meal plans you need for more inspiration and support every day.

Cooking is a basic life skill, and knowing how to open your pantry or fridge and make delicious meals of all kinds with what you have, is more important than ever. Knowing how to do this with busy schedules and mixed-diet dinner tables is also a must. Good Food Cooking School is designed to teach you, and simply help you, to cook and bake like you’ve always wanted to, from the comfort of home (or wherever you are) when and how you want.

Our Courses and Recipe Bundles have been changing lives since 2016 and I’ve been sharing gluten-free, plant-based recipes online and in best-selling cookbooks since 2009.

I know what it’s like to get started. I grew up a total veggie-phobe and I know how overwhelming and exciting dietary changes can feel in the beginning, middle, and even when you think you’ve finally figured it all out. I know what it takes to make incredible gluten-free, dairy-free goodies of all kinds that all eaters will love, and I’m forever dedicated to sharing what I’ve learned (and continue to discover) with you.


I created Good Food Cooking School so everything you need to learn and feel inspired to cook and bake is in one place
. Time is a rare thing these days and I’ve build the platform that can help you every day. Reference the robust ingredient index to learn all about ingredients used, create custom shopping lists and recipe collections, learn to batch cook, and turn one recipe into many with recipe variations and ingredient substitutions with each recipe. Truly learn to cook with and without recipes. Confidently swap ingredients to make a recipe or freestyle meal work with our various tips and features. 

We meet you where you are.

Become a confident cook and a creative baker here. We provide ongoing inspiration and support for it all as long as you want it. Cancel anytime, or maintain active membership to access ongoing course and recipe additions, and other inspiration for the long-term. I’m always adding new recipes and creating new courses for GFCS members throughout the year. 

I don’t take it lightly that you chose to spend time reading about GFCS.

Good Food Cooking School is designed to change lives. Whether you’re looking for a bright spot in your day, something to do with your kids or friends, ways to get creative, or you simply want to improve your cooking and baking skills, I’d love to have you join our beautiful cooking and baking family.

Questions? Contact us any time.

What is your refund policy?

Good Food Cooking School is for committed students, passionate learners, and people really excited to get cooking.

We stand behind our courses and recipes and think you’ll love them too. If not, you have 7 days to request a refund via your Account only. Due to the electronic nature of these materials, there are no exceptions.

If you aren’t sure whether Good Food Cooking School is a good fit for you, read this entire Tour thoroughly and if you still have questions, contact us. If you still aren’t certain that you’re ready to get cooking and baking with us, please don’t enroll unless you’re ready.

This is a robust and rewarding membership platform that students can build upon for years to come. It can change the way you cook and bake for life. We’re proud of it and excited about what it can do for people who want to add more delicious variety to their daily lives. We want you to feel this way too!

Can I use My iPad/Tablet?

Yes! Our platform is designed to be user friendly, working on any device you’re using. Learn the way that’s most convenient for you, when it’s convenient for you.

Can I download the videos?

Sorry, our system doesn’t allow for the downloading of videos. Rest assured however that you can login and access your Account and the content as much as you need to with an active Account.

What currency is the course price?

$USD—your financial institution(s) will handle conversions.



Are the recipes grain-free?

No, but we provide substitutions when possible.

What if I eat meat/dairy?

That’s fine with us, but if you want to add more delicious plant-based meals to your menu rotation, this is a great platform for you.

All recipes are meat- and dairy-free and we provide suggestions with almost every recipe for how you can add animal protein and/or substitute ingredients for picky eaters. This is also helpful for those times that the grocery store doesn’t have a particular ingredient, we have suggestions so you can make it work.

We start with crowd-pleasing recipes for all eaters and give you all the tools you need so you can create and adapt from there.

What if I’m gluten-free?

Our recipes are completely gluten-free as well, but don’t tell the gluten-full folks, they’ll never know!

Are the recipes vegan?

With the exception of the use of honey in a few recipes, our recipes qualify as vegan. If you’re averse to using honey, we provide loads of substitutions with recipes and our Ingredient Index will help you make simple swaps.

Do the recipes use nuts?

Yes, but we provide substitutions when possible.

Do courses come with a certificate of completion?

Selected courses do! If you complete the requirements, a certificate of completion will be issued when available.

What if I’m busy?

We’re busy people developing the kind of courses, recipes, and resources we’d want.

We provide loads support to make the most of your time like batch cooking tips with each recipe and ingredient substitutions as well.

There’s no more than 2 hours of learning with each course module and we have features to help organize and shop more efficiently.

As long as your membership is active, you can access all of your materials.

Will there be homework or quizzes?

There are assignments and lesson recaps with selected course modules. Completing them tracks your progress through the course, and it’s the only way that you officially complete the course and receive a completion certificate.

Ultimately though, you can do as much or as little as you want with the material. You get out of it what you put into it.

Will I be an expert cook or baker if I watch all of the videos?

Cooking and baking is a practice, much like yoga or piano. The more time and effort you put into it, the more mastery you’ll gain.

What & How You’ll Learn


First, and perhaps most importantly, you’ll learn
that cooking and baking can be easy and stress-free
with the right recipes, skills, and tools.


Good Food Cooking School members get all content now, and in the future.

Our Courses are robust and contain multiple learning modules with how-to videos, lessons, lesson recaps, practice recipes, learning articles, extra recipes, loads of tips, step-by-step recipe videos, and much more.

All modules for all courses will release at once. We highly recommend that you work through them in numerical order. Every new module builds on the former.

Our Meal Plans come with recipes, shopping list, printable plan, batch cooking tips, omnivore suggestions, prep tips and more to help you prepare meals confidently without stress.


Recipe Bundles are pretty much like mini “courses” where the learning is all about practicing a variety of recipes within a specific theme. There aren’t learning modules, lessons, or recaps, just plenty of step-by-step videos, recipes, and learning articles to help when you need it.

Usually, all recipes within a recipe bundle release at once and you can pick and choose which you want to start with.

If you’re someone who says “I can’t cook” or “I can’t bake,” our courses and recipes will help you learn that you definitely can.



What Students Say

What Students are Cooking + Baking


From braises to puff pastry, fritters to poached treats,
even sourdough, our students are confidently cooking
and baking up delicious creations of all kinds, and
you can too. 

We’re so proud of our members, and while we could rave and rave about
their success, we’ll just let some photos of their creations do the talking here…
