Culinary therapy for all

Dishmeetup is an online community of folks from all walks of life using cooking to nurture, heal, and feel better.

Food is more than what we eat. Intentional cooking, being present in the kitchen and making a dish for yourself can feel so therapeutic. Invest in yourself and discover the mental and physical health benefits of cooking.

We use cooking/baking to make good food and lifestyle choices so we can experience abundant energy, mental clarity, physical strength, a sense of accomplishment, and improved self-esteem.

Join our community (All levels welcome!)
