Based out of her own home in the historic Coral Gables, Amber Antonelli offers Naked Bite cooking classes (approximately $68) with the purpose of empowering people with better eating choices surrounding the concept of local, organic, and ethical ingredients. By trying to get its audience to bring plant based foods to the foregrounds of their meals and diets, these classes are supposed to equip you with the necessary knowledge to produce a fulfilling meal that won’t leave you feeling like something is missing. Although some of the recipes do feature small amounts of meat or non-vegetarian friendly, most things offered can be tweaked to accommodate those trying to stay away from meat. Amber offers a blog on her website that provides people with tips and recipes to help them maintain a healthy lifestyle without sacrificing their access to satisfying food.
Classes are small and semi-private, allowing for individual interaction and the opportunity for students to ask as many questions as they would need. By only allowing classes with 4 to 10 students, Amber focuses on making sure that everyone is internalizing the information and actually learning throughout the process. No specific skill level is needed, catering to all people ranging from beginners to the most advanced cooks.
Different classes are offered throughout the year, based off of what you are trying to learn or a specific type of cuisine. For those interested in learning about food from different regions of the world, classes involved around Mexican, Thai, Asian, and Italian can be taken. For those looking for cooking based on the season, you can sign up for Amber’s classes involving Spring produce or Seasonal South Floridian vegetables and fruits. No matter which class you take, the class experience is the same: one in which you leave with a new perspective of how your diet should be maintained and what makes a worthwhile meal.
