About Roni’s Kitchen

I opened Roni’s Kitchen when I was 5 years old. My first customers were my parents and brothers. They were a kind and forgiving crowd… Since then, I have had the pleasure of cooking in kitchens around the world, experiencing and experimenting with new ingredients and flavours. After 7 wonderful years at ‘The Coup’ in Calgary (awarded 8th best vegetarian restaurant in the world by The Daily Meal), I decided to start my own business – Roni’s Kitchen – in 2014. It has been an amazing adventure ever since!

Roni’s Kitchen’s mission is to reconnect you with food, empower you through cooking, and help you feel more comfortable in your own kitchen!

Roni Zaide decided to become a vegetarian on her 11th birthday. Years later she made the transition to a full vegan, plant-based lifestyle. Roni loves to share her passion for delicious, healthy eats through a variety of plant-based cooking classes. Roni shares step by step, easy-to-follow, mouth-watering recipes from around the world.

Roni has been teaching in-person cooking classes since 2014, and is now happy to also offer her classes online, so anyone, anywhere in the world, can access the classes whenever it works for them!

Previous offerings from Roni’s Kitchen include; pop-up brunch at Cafe Koi, weekly meal service, grab & go vegan line for local cafes, and Street Food Saturdays.


“Food is definitely one of my love languages. Making food for others has always brought me joy and a sense of purpose.  My passion has taken me around the world, inspiring me to create diverse and exciting recipes, and I am thrilled to share those flavours with you!”
