What you'll do

In this experience we’re getting saucy. We’ll be making my two all-time favourite sauces: pesto and peanut sauce. They are both vegan and gluten free, but most importantly, they’re drool-worthy delicious and made with raw, whole plant foods that taste incredible and fuel your body.

Plus, I'll be sharing my favourite recipes these sauces taste incredible on like Pad Thai, Rainbow Rolls, and Blistered Tomato Pasta. Ever wonder how they make pesto so bright green in the restaurants? I'll let you in on the secret and teach you. I’m super passionate about nutrition, so we’ll learn about the value and incredible health benefits of each ingredient. Food changed my life and I want to help you feel your very best. Get ready to throw on a pot of pasta, grab a glass of vino, and enjoy a gorgeous dinner once we’re done.

Through the power of storytelling, I'll recount the wild ride of how I overcame a decade of adversity and naysayers to go from ultimate underdog to Olympian. In addition, I’ll share my journey of how I pivoted from Olympian to chef and nutritionist which included breaking my spine and coming back to win gold. Ever wondered what it looks like to hurl yourself down a mountain at 135kph on a sled? You’ll find out.

I'm an Olympian, a plant-based chef, and a holistic nutritionist.

I’ve competed in Luge at the 2014 Olympics, 50 World Cups, and five World Championships, and I’ve won two World Cup medals. To get there I had to overcome a decade of naysayers who told me that I would never amount to anything in luge and that I would never be enough.

I broke my back and was forced to overhaul every aspect of my life. I came back to win gold eight months later. This was the first time I understood the power of food and lifestyle in relation to nourishment, performance, and wellness.

I’m passionate about sharing my Olympic journey and blending that with the science of nutrition and the art of healthy eating to help people feel their best and live more empowered, inspired, and fulfilled lives.

Arianne has a great personality for video presentation. She is very interested in providing a fun, easy experience to cooking and wants to share her passion for food. It was great to listen to her experiences as an elite Olympic athlete and learn about food the same time and make a sauce or 2 that I will use in my dinners.

Arianne hosts a fun and informative cooking class with Olympic spirit! I was able to make delicious healthy food, learn about nutrition, and connect with others through their kitchen views. Arianne is engaging and smart, ready to help you succeed and feel like a chef for the day (even if you're a chef, too)! Learning about Olympic Luge was also insanely cool, I have major respect for anyone who decides to sled at that kind of speed! I highly recommend any experience with Arianne! Thanks for the fun class :)

This was an amazing two fold opportunaty, to take a cooking class with a chef in my own kitchen and to do this online, all in all an awesome experience, thank you Arianne.

This was AWESOME! Truly, one of my favorite experiences in quarantine. I am such a foody, especially when it comes to wholesome, plant-based food, and I love cooking. However, it was way more fun to have a glass of wine and visit with others while making scrumptious sauces then it is on my own in the kitchen. I can't recommend this experience enough. Also, it is so cool to learn more about luge!!!
