More About Dawn

We all know we should be eating healthy - so why the heck is it so hard? Let me make it easy for you! I love helping people LEARN to cook and LOVE their veggies - but it's gotta be simple and delicious because no one wants to eat yucky food that takes forever.


Hi! I'm Dawn Hutchins, the founder of VegeCooking LLC - Healthy cooking classes for kids, teens and adults since 2016. We bring the kitchen to you! After-school enrichment, virtual classes, summer camps, corporate, birthdays, Girls and Boy Scouts, The Boys & Girls Clubs, adult and teen classes and more. Want to start your own purpose-driven business?

I have over ten years of experience in recipe development, cooking demonstrations, and healthy event planning.  I'm passionate about learning about produce varietals, seasonal vegetables, commercial and organic farming, permaculture, publishing and creation of digital products, services and programs. I’ve published four books and multiple eBooks.

What else? I'm a mom (click here to learn more about Chef Gabby!), wife, entrepreneur, yoga lover, and camping enthusiast that considers herself forever a student. I love learning, taking classes and always striving to be better.
