What you'll do

In this experience we’re making delicious raspberry cheesecake, but without the cheese! This treat is vegan, it’s raw and it’s real delicious!

Ever wonder how they make them look so beautiful? I'll let you in on the secrets and teach you to decorate it like a pro.

I’m super passionate about nutrition so we’ll learn about why you should opt for real sugars instead of refined ones, what that means and how it affects your body. It changed my life and I want to help you feel your very best too so you can reach those amazing goals of yours. But honestly, goals are hard work and I think they require treats along the way! Eat your cake and feel great too.

Through the power of storytelling i'll take you on a wild ride of how I got to the Olympics; spoiler -- it includes a lot of adversity, being the ultimate underdog, and overcoming a decade of naysayers who told me I would never be enough. As well, how I pivoted from Olympian to chef and nutritionist; spoiler -- it includes breaking my spine and coming back to win Gold, getting mysteriously sick and up moving to NYC.

Ever wondered what it looks like to hurl yourself down a mountain at 135km/d on a sled? You’ll find out!

Q + A - ask me anything I’m an open book! I hope to leave you feeling inspired, empowered, with some new nutrition knowledge and happy bellies full of dessert!

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.

What a great class! Fun to cook alongside one another, share stories, and learn more about the personal experiences of an Olympic athlete. Highly recommend and I would take another one of her classes!

This is so much more than a cooking class! Arianne's experience is a combination of storytelling, food, and a little bit of learning. I walked away with a better understanding of certain ingredients and how they impact the body, as well as feeling more confident in my baking skills. The time flew by and I had a tasty healthy dessert waiting for me. If you want a great experience led by a host with a unique perspective, this is it!

My wife got this as a surprise date for us and it was AMAZING! I probably would have been excited about it just because it was cooking healthy treats, but it was also so inspiring to hear Arianne's stories of overcoming adversity - something we really needed to hear right now. It was fun to hang out in our respective kitchens together while getting inspired by her amazing story and cooking really yummy stuff and getting educated about healthy eating from a Gold Medal Olympian. Definitely an amazing experience! To top it off, the "cheesecake" was so tasty, and it's a good thing we have guests coming over tomorrow or it would be eaten be me alone in just a few days. It is pretty awesome to eat such a decadent dessert but not get a stomach ache after! HIGHLY recommend this. I'll definitely be sharing this one with my friends. Maybe even gifting it. If we could give 6 out of 5 starts, we would.

Beyond the excellent recipe and hearing Arianne's journey from Olympian to chef and nutrition expert - She encouraged questions about my nutrition interests and I got some great insights.

WOW! What an amazing, tasty, educational, inspiring and happy experience! Arianne's energy and zest for life is contagious and I smiled the entire time we were making our delicious treat. Everything was very well organized and simple to do. As wonderful as the chef experience was, her story is truly the icing on the cake of this whole experience! I left the zoom call feeling inspired and ready to tackle anything- including my guilt-free treat!
