“I’ve taken several of Sunny’s online cooking classes and was so impressed not only with the quality of her recipes but with the personal flair and passion she instructs with. She is personable, funny, and of course, very knowledgeable – it’s as if I almost feel like she’s in the room with me!

I liked it so much that I decided to hire her for a special virtual birthday cooking class for my friend who turned 40 and it was the highlight of our weekend!”

Cooking Classes

Cooking leads to food and eating, and that is what unites us. Food is something we can all be happy about and talk about. I wanted to create a series of virtual cooking classes to reach all the people I’d love to have at my table and in my kitchen but couldn’t physically—because we live in different parts of the world.

In this section, you’ll find a selection of some of my favorite cooking classes, recipes, and topics that I hope will become yours as well.

Let’s embrace what makes us similar and different and explore various flavor profiles, traditions, and cooking styles. Let’s get back to the kitchen, whether you are in Norway, the United States, Italy, England, or the far East.

Check out my offerings and let’s cook together through the screen!

Wine Masterclasses

I’ve worked in the wine industry for nearly two decades and have studied wine extensively gaining more certifications than I’d like to admit. But at the end of the day, wine is about enjoyment. Sometimes we as wine professionals can forget about this essential fact.

In these online wine classes, we’ll take a food-centered approach to wine with the aim to explore how different flavors either match or contrast each other, particularly as it comes to plant-based food.

You’ll learn about wine but more importantly, why wine exists—to bring joy and to heighten the experience of a meal.

Wine is also about history, geography, traditions, culture, and passion. Throughout these masterclasses, you’ll hear stories that hopefully will make the wine and the people who make them, come alive through your glass 🙂

Drop the pretenses, and join a masterclass. Whether you’re a complete novice or an expert, we all can agree on something—Wine rocks!

“I’ve been looking forever for vegan Nordic cuisine and am baffled why I haven’t found your blog before. You’ve given me so much inspiration (and frankly, I have to work a little harder the next few days as today I spent composing my Nordic vegan Julefest (cuz, y’know, better be on time) which will be a six-course meal).

Oddly, a long time ago I lived in Oslo and didn’t really care for Nordic cuisine as it’s so meat-based but recently I’ve taken an interest yet struggled to find a vegan starting point. Now, I am bursting with ideas! (also have fresh dill growing in the garden for the first time, that’ll come in handy).

Tusen takk!”
