Founded in 2010 by Elana Horwich, Meal and a Spiel is a private cooking school based on the philosophy that anyone can learn to cook. We offer classes, recipes, videos, guidance for healthy living, and of course, spiels.

We strongly believe that love is the most essential ingredient, and that sharing good food is a vehicle to a nicer planet. We stand for a world replete with delicious, consciously-prepared meals that are shared in generous spirit. Our recipes reflect a unique crossroads between authentic country Italian cuisine and the healthy practices of California. The result is simple rustic fare that prioritizes flavor and indulgence without a food coma.

Change the world with us, one meal at a time.
