Healthy Cooking Classes

If you’re trying to eat healthier, but need a little help getting comfortable cooking up delicious, nutritious, homemade meals, you’re in luck!

Tenacious Acorn Health Coaching is now offering in-home cooking instruction in the Wilmington NC area. Health Coach Jessica O’Neill will come to your kitchen and show you how to maximize your time and effort to create delicious, nutritious, satisfying meals.

Jessica is a classically trained culinary school graduate, has two decades of experience as a professional Chef and Culinary Educator, and loves to help people find their cooking comfort zone. She has experience teaching children, teens, and adults, in both classroom and private settings. Even if you’ve never cooked anything fancier than a frozen pizza, Jessica will give you the confidence to take charge of your daily diet, and your health.

Cooking lessons for Individuals and Small Groups are available. Here’s what to expect...

Individual Cooking Lesson

As part of this package, prior to your cooking lesson, you will receive a complimentary 45 minute Wellness Coaching Session with Jessica. During this Coaching Session, you will define a personal health and wellness related goal and create a plan to achieve it. Then, based on your goals, you and Jessica will plan your cooking lesson.

On the day of your in-home lesson, you and Jessica will shop for fresh ingredients together, and then prepare everything in the comfort of your own kitchen. You can also choose to include a friend or family member in the cooking lesson for no additional charge!

Want to delve deeper into the mysteries of culinary creations? Jessica can work with you to design a custom series of classes focusing on your tastes and goals. From basic knife skills to multi-course dinners, she will get you confident and cooking!

Small Group Cooking Party

Looking for a more social event? We can turn your lesson into a Cooking Party with up to 3 of your friends!

You as host will receive a 45 minute Coaching Session to define your personal wellness goal, and create a plan to achieve it. Based on your goals, you and Jessica will plan your cooking party.

On the day of your party, you and Jessica will shop for your menu-specific, fresh ingredients. Your guests can then join us in your kitchen for an entertaining and interactive cooking experience.
