Healthy Holiday Entertaining

Thank you for your interest in this program. We apologize for any inconveniences, but it has been postponed.

If you would like to know about other upcoming Everyday Delicious Healthy Meal programs at Smith Center, please email Thank you.


Learn the basics of cooking a simple, delicious plant-based meal for holiday entertaining. Cooking is one of the fundamental things we can do to support our health and care for ourselves and others. This holiday season, this program will inspire you to give yourself and love ones the gift of a nourishing, home-cooked meal. Treat yourself to samples as Juliette demonstrates how to prepare each item. 

Featured Menu:

Baked Seitan in Mustard Marinade
Yukon & Yam Croquettes
Chestnut, Leek and Mushroom Ragout
Sweet and Sour Cranberry Sauce

While this class is vegan (no animal products), we don't specifically recommend any type of diet. Each individual's needs are unique. The program is open to anyone who wants to learn about the world of natural foods and plant-based meals. The menu items can be modified for any type of diet. 


Juliette G. Tahar is the founder and president of Healthy Living Inc., a non-profit organization that educates people of all backgrounds, regardless of income, in how to plan and prepare simple, delicious, healthy meals. In all of their efforts, Juliette and Healthy Living Inc. work to promote an environment that is supportive and safe, and which fosters community spirit.

Juliette’s cooking career began in 1992 as a small, private, vegan macrobiotic cooking and teaching company. It evolved into a full-time catering and teaching business until 2006, when Tahar established Healthy Living Inc. Born of French parents, Tahar owes her interest in natural foods to growing up in West Africa – a childhood connection to the natural world evolved into a mature interest in the relationship between health, food and cooking. She studied at The International Macrobiotic Institute in Kiental, Switzerland, at the French macrobiotic center Cuisine et Santé, The George Ohsawa Macrobiotic Foundation in California, and The Natural Gourmet Institute in New York City.

*Please Note: Every individual's needs are unique. We aim to offer a variety of health-promoting options for each individual to consider, but do not prescribe the specific dietary content of any program for anyone.

Our programs are tailored to the needs of people affected by cancer, but we welcome anyone who would like to attend.
