Takoma Academy Offers Virtual Cooking Class

Story by Salena Fitzgerald

Takoma Academy (TA) continues to instruct classes virtually, with the hopes of implementing a hybrid plan in the near future. With concerns of lack of social interaction, TA administrators continue to brainstorm and innovate new ideas to accommodate more active social learning skills.

Accordingly, when the opportunity presented itself for a healthy interactive cooking class, staff members could not refuse. Local chef Roberta Lowe offered her expertise, giving a different perspective on vegan cooking to students and staff. Lowe, founder of Blossoms Events and Catering, LLC, is determined to revolutionize cooking at home. She has trained with celebrity chefs, and brings a flare to vegan cuisine that both meat eaters and vegetarians enjoy.

Since October, participants have received step-by-step coaching and cooking tips. This allows them to learn and practice skills by cooking favorite dishes for their families.

Principal Carla Thrower is delighted to have Chef Lowe on board:
“Vegan food can taste good. This class has given me so many ideas for meals that I can prepare for myself and for my family. I look forward to the next class where we will be making vegan cannoli.”
