Whole Foods is hosting a series of virtual live cook-along shows called “Gourmet Date for Good,” and it benefits the Independent Restaurant Coalition. Each class will last about 30-45 minutes and have a different theme.

 comedian Heather McMahan, actress and TikTok superstar Tabitha Brown, and comedian Matt Bellassai will host the sessions. To give you a little more about what to expect: Heather will be joined by her mom, Robin, and her sister, Ashley, to show you how to make their steak crostini with basil vinaigrette sauce for Galentine’s Day.


If you’re looking for something a bit more romantic, you can join Tabitha and her husband, Chance, in making vallops – which yes, are vegan scallops— along with delicious vegan butter and Whole Foods Market hearts of palm pasta, or whatever your noodle of choice will be.


Then for the singles, Matt will be making chocolate lava cake during his event, which organizers describe as “the one dessert everybody feels pressure to share but secretly wants to inhale alone.” There will be Q&A with the hosts afterwards.

Whole Foods Market will also be matching all ticket donations up to $50,000. You can access tickets here, and when you make your donation, you’ll also get access to a list of ingredients you’ll need to make the dish for your event.
