Welcome to Radha’s Kitchen Gourmet & Vegetarian Cooking School!

Master the art of magical vegetarian cooking…

Learn to create exquisite gourmet meals that bring new life to a jaded palate, irresistible symphonies of taste, culinary classes and experiences that will remain as blissful memories forever…
A magical gourmet and vegetarian dinner can be a life-changing experience, can open the hearts and minds of those who enjoy the foreplay of arousing aromas, the jolt of enlivening colors, exotic forms, teasing textures, and the awesome explosion of delight on the tongue-—the full seductive offering of sensual satisfaction that a perfect meal provides.
The high art of vegetarian culinary conquest can be yours… right here at Radha’s Kitchen, located in Escazu, Costa Rica.
But it takes more than cooking recipes to make a vegetarian magic meal…
The Yoga of Sublime Cooking employs the subtle energies of higher consciousness, together with the wisdom of spicing, the knowledge of organic nutrition, the grammatology of gourmet presentation, of dishes the understanding of how the unconscious mind responds to the elemental signifiers of taste sensations…
In short, a revolutionary approach to designing fine gourmet and rustic cooking classes. Once you have entered Radha’s Kitchen cooking school, your relationship to vegetarian food will never be the same.
Radha’s Kitchen is an aromatic ashram located in Escazu, Costa Rica – an esoteric gastronomical school in which to learn the art of fresh culinary alchemy. Radha will teach you how to astonish your guests not once but time and again, with food menus and recipes inspired by the most wonderful cuisines from around the world.
Whether you are a beginner or an experienced cook or chef, you will find much to learn in our Yogic  vegetarian approach to meal preparation. And you will rise from novice to expert rapidly with our hands-on gastronomical teaching method.
In our gourmet cooking classes imparted in Radha’s sacred kitchen (Escazu, Costa Rica), you will learn the basic spice and ingredient palates, as well as the techniques needed to create authentic and rustic-yet-gourmet vegetarian dishes. We will also teach you how to develop your culinary ideas, select quality organic ingredients, develop professional menus, and plan your weekly culinary calendar.
As part of the Sat Yoga Institute, Radha’s Kitchen is devoted to vegetarian and vegan cooking—-but for those who are omnivores, we offer many classes that include healthful non-vegetarian preparations and additions.
Because we practice the Yogic Principles of Seven-Body Wellness—we nourish not just the physical organism, but also the pranic, mental, and wisdom bodies, the bodies of subtle and universal energies—the delicious meals we create in Radha’s kitchen must be healthy and nutritious at the same time they are divinely beautiful.
Most importantly, we emphasize preparing organic vegetarian food in the most natural way, honoring the inherent perfection of the ingredients of Mother Earth, cooking and seasoning them in ways that enhance their color, texture, and taste in ways that delight the senses and make one feel happy to be alive.
In short, we cook to nourish the soul, not just the body.
Our gourmet and vegetarian cooking classes are hands-on and intensive–you will come away with profound culinary wisdom and a rainbow of tastes and ideas to keep you forever creative in your kitchen.

      Dear Tamara:

      Thank you for your comment and questions.

      Radha’s Kitchen Classes include an array of traditional vegetarian, raw, vegan and alkaline recipes. We always strive to use fresh and, when we can, organic ingredients. Radha’s Kitchen is not limited to a vegan diet but all of our classes include many vegan recipes and if they are not vegan, Radha often gives suggestions on how to modify the recipe for a strict vegan diet. In her training, Radha has also emphasized alkaline based recipes which is a vegan diet with restrictions to keep the body in a more alkaline state.

      Radha’s kitchen cooking classes are offered to all interested cooks. At this time we do not offer complete training in a program offering, but are planning on offering such certification in the near future.We encourage all students to become a creative chef in their own household and community.

      The classes are usually on Saturday and begin around 12 or 1 pm with a brief introduction by Radha and then we jump right into 4 – 6 hours of intense cooking. Students are encouraged to assist in different aspects of the food preparation. In addition to learning the class recipes, you will be exposed to essential cooking techniques, attractive plating ideas, food history, and many tips about selecting great food products. Throughout the class we taste the culinary creations and have time for feedback and questions.

      Let us know if you would like to be put on our mailing list so you can be up to date on the happenings with Radha’s Kitchen and find out when our next cooking class will be scheduled.
