Founder, Good Food Cooking School
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 perfect course for you. All recipes are meat- and dairy-free but we provide suggestions with almost every recipe for how you can add animal protein and/or substitute ingredients for picky eaters or those times the grocery store doesn’t have a particular ingredient. 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 and our Ingredient Index will help you make simple swaps.
Do the recipes use nuts?
Yes, but we provide substitutions when possible.
What if I’m busy?
We’re busy people developing the kind of recipes and resources we’d want—we provide loads support to make the most of your time like batch cooking tips with each recipe. 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 each course module. 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 if I watch all of the videos?
Cooking is a practice, much like yoga or piano. The more time and effort you put into it, the more mastery you’ll gain.
Are the recipes grain-free?
No, but we provide substitutions when possible.
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 course as much as you need to while your account is active.
Can I give membership as a gift?
How sweet of you, yes! You can purchase a gift card here.
What currency is the course price?
$USD—your financial institution(s) will handle conversions.
Do courses come with a certificate of completion?
They do! If you complete the requirements in the courses, a certificate of completion will be issued.
What is your refund policy?
Good Food Cooking School is for committed students, passionate learners, and people really excited to get cooking.
Due to the entirely electronic nature of the course materials and the course platform, there are no refunds.
If you aren’t sure whether Good Food Cooking School is a good fit for you, read this entire Tour thoroughly—every word—and if you still have questions, email 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!

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.
All modules for all courses will release at once and we highly recommend that you work through them in numerical order. Every new module builds on the former.
After your course experiences, you’ll realize that plant-based meals are delicious, versatile, and make cooking and baking fun. And if you’re someone who says “I can’t cook” or “I can’t bake,” you’ll definitely learn that you can.
What Students Say
What Students are Cooking + Baking
From braises to fritters to poached treats and 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 photos of their creations do the talking here…
It Starts with You
We created Good Food Cooking School to support home cooks and bakers who simply want to bring more good food into their lives. We work hard to bring robust programs to all eaters at an affordable price because good food and basic, life-changing cooking and baking skills shouldn’t be out of reach. Good Food Cooking School should be an inspiring place for all to learn and grow for the long-term.
Everyone is welcome here and we believe that a rising tide can lift all boats. We’re enthusiastic and committed to using this platform to support people inside and outside of our member community. Your success can be success for others too.
We take a portion of every enrollment to support the efforts of the heroes that grow our food, and if you join us, you’ll be helping too. Your learning will not only help those in your immediate circle, but it will create a ripple effect that goes beyond you.
Every Good Food Cooking School enrollment supports F.A.R.M.S. and Farmer’s Footprint’s efforts to better our world for future generations.
If timing isn’t right for you to join Gluten-Free Bread Basics this time around, that’s a-ok, but we encourage you to check out Farmer’s Footprint and F.A.R.M.S to learn more about the powerful work they’re doing—maybe make a donation on your own if you have the means.
Every month, 30,000 acres of Black landownership is lost primarily due to non-payment of property tax, eminent domain, unprofitable business models, discrimination, generational out-migration, and lack of estate planning.
Reversing small-farm land loss to ensure generational wealth and reducing hunger in rural low-income communities.
The ultimate purpose of retaining the land is to pass it down to the next generation as a family legacy. Land is wealth and land is history. Affordable legal services are lacking in rural under-served farming communities and small farmers are becoming scarce.
F.A.R.M.S. has partnered with attorneys from across the country to save small farms from foreclosure due to reverse mortgage, provided estate planning services, civil rights litigation, and more. Protecting farmland from predatory abuse is an essential part of F.A.R.M.S.’ programming and they are actively working with Hispanic and Native American Farmers with farming and legal needs as well. F.A.R.M.S. also leads efforts beyond the U.S. to support farming, food-bank, and financial assistance needs in Haiti, Sierra Leone, Trinidad, and India.
The F.A.R.M.S. to Food Bank program is an integral part of the organization as well—so important now as people are one illness or one job loss away from food insecurity. F.A.R.M.S. purchases fresh produce from their farm clients across the country which are then donated to food banks, pantries, homeless, child and eldercare centers. Since 2014, they’ve purchased over 325,000 lbs. of fresh produce across the U.S.
A century of monocrop farming and reliance on pesticides has damaged our nation’s once-fertile soils and the health of every American. The rapid increase in pesticide use over the past few decades has coincided with this explosion of chronic disease.
A profound change in the demographics of chronic disease is underway in the United States. Independent research from private laboratories and universities around the world, are implicating glyphosate—the active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup.
Farmer’s Footprint is a coalition of farmers, educators, doctors, scientists, and business leaders aiming to expose the human and environmental impacts of chemical farming and offer a path forward through regenerative agricultural practices.
Regenerative agriculture focuses on rebuilding organic matter and living biodiversity in soil, which produces increasingly nutrient-dense food year after year—while rapidly sequestering excess atmospheric carbon underground to reverse climate change.
It brings proven results for farmers to have a profitable business and livelihood. Conventional inputs become unnecessary, increased organic matter in the soil brings insect biodiversity which helps manage pest pressure and the end market for organic crops increases the overall value of their crop making product value the priority over the conventional method of purely valuing yield.
At a time when there are more farmer suicides and bankruptcies than ever, bringing back economic success and life on the farm has never been more important.
