iEat Green cooking classes are offered both locally on Long Island as well as at special venues around the Greater New York Metropolitan area and abroad.
iEat Green founder, Bhavani Jaroff, leads classes that engage learners in hands-on cooking lessons or demonstration-style courses designed to introduce important tenets of the culinary arts as well as teach clients to create healthy meals using local, organic, and seasonal ingredients.
Drawing on her background in education and experience as a natural foods personal chef, Bhavani creates an engaging classroom atmosphere and develops unique class offerings including lessons in the preparation of vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, raw, macrobiotic, and seafood dishes.
Bhavani offers both one-on-one and group cooking classes at the iEat Green homestead in Old Westbury, Long Island, New York. One of her favorite programs to run is the celebration of a special life cycle, whether it be a 50 or 60th birthday, or a bridal shower. iEat Green’s cooking classes are a wonderful way to celebrate the honoree, surrounded by their closest circle. The menu is designed personally with the honoree’s favorite foods, and all participants will have a chance to cook or watch and sit down to an elegant dinner party. These unique culinary lessons often begin with harvesting fresh ingredients from the on-site organic garden, providing students with an inspirational farm-to-table cooking experience.
Bhavani also offers classes at special venues, such as community colleges, kitchen stores, local libraries, or on-board vacation cruises. In addition, Bhavani has organized children’s cooking classes that introduce young ones to the joy of cooking and sharing food. Bhavani is also happy to organize special cooking classes for groups or events.

Cooking with Bhavani was an enormous success! To see 50 children so engaged in preparing their own healthy foods was a wonderful experience. Bhavani and her crew put a tremendous amount of preparation into the event to ensure that everything ran smoothly. The kids loved it! And parents were thrilled that their children were trying new healthy foods. – Denise Reiger, Sea Cliff Elementary School
