I have a degree in Dietetics and am trained as a chef, which means that my culinary creations are delectable and just happen to be really good for you. I'm a keen fermenter and at any given moment there is a wide assortment of krauts, kimchis, misos and seasonal vegetables happily fermenting away in the basement. Another passion of mine is traveling which has allowed me to learn about many different cuisines around the globe especially Korean, Indian and Balinese.
Here's what I can offer you:
Private Cooking Lessons I love to teach. I love to empower others to take their food, health and wellness into their own hands. Are you curious about how to artistically plate a salad? Want to learn how to front load a week's worth of meals on Sunday? Interested in trying your hand at how to cook beans properly? I'm happy to help guide you in the kitchen no matter your current skill level. This is currently offered in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Recipe Development Do you need a professionally written and tested recipe for a publication, blog post or article? I specialize in fabulous vegan and vegetarian dishes with a healthy slant.
Cooking Demos Learn the techniques for various dishes without having to get your hands dirty. Perfect for parties and corporate events. No kitchen? No problem. I've done demos at the farmer's market, community centers and grocery stores. We'll work together to come up with a creative way to deliver maximum education an entertainment with minimal equipment. This is currently offered in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Private Consultations Need a pantry clean out? Advice on how to eat healthy when traveling? Confused by all the rapidly changing food trends and nutrition fads? Contact me and we can discuss your questions and goals. Can be in person or using video chat depending on type of consultation.
