Food Alchemy is one of my passions and gifts. I found this picture on “facebook”. The memory reminded me of all the fun I had preparing for this photoshoot and Summer cooking classes. I wanted to share an adapted offering for summer cooking classes. To be noted, Summer Cooking Classes (all seasonal classes) are a special way to learn about food and nourish your family and friends.
Personally, I can spend hours in the kitchen. I love getting lost in food and cooking. I enjoy exploring the possibilities, process and exchange with food. From my perspective, cooking is a simple daily practice that will connect you deeper to self and food. Moreover, refining your relationship with food gives you new and exciting ways to feed yourself and those you love.
During my seasonal cooking classes and retreats, I will take you through a process to connect with food and self. Simultaneously, I teach you how to communicate deeper with food. These custom classes will unlock your potential from within. You will transform an aspect of your relationship with food & deepen your connection to the world around you.
Summer Cooking Classes
Today, I was inspired me to share this Summer Cooking Menu. Moreover, I have decided to offer these classes and food alchemy experiences via on-line and in private home experiences. These classes will be available for the remainder of summer through the end of the 2020. I have faith that we will be able to transition back public classes in 2021. Finally, these cooking classes and dining experiences are a great way to experience the fun of cooking, dining and love.
