What you'll do

As a plant based personal chef, I'll be teaching an intro to plant based cooking class. The class will cover make ahead appetizers and entrees. We'll learn how to make Pecan Pate, Spicy Roasted Carrot Hummus, Baked Oatmeal and Baked Tofu with String beans and Chile Crisp. Because it's plant based there would be no dairy or meat present. I'll source as many ingredients from local farms/businesses in The Catskills/Hudson Valley. The class will take place in my kitchen/home here in the Hudson Valley. At the end of class (depending on the time of year) we'll enjoy everything either in my dining room or outside in the backyard. I want you to not only feel confident to try plant based cooking at home but to also learn and taste different products from local farmers/businesses in the area. You'll go home with a recipe packet and a list of purveyors, so you can support those businesses/farms in the future.

What started with one cookbook and a need to get healthier inside and out 20 years ago, has grown into a business. I've been in love with cooking healthy energizing food for as long as I can remember. I was born and raised in Philadelphia, and grew up surrounded by art and music; nurtured by my family, and propelled by my innate need to create.

I believe food is medicine. My focus is helping you ease into plant based meals. I’ll help you turn your kitchen into a healing, loving environment. Cooking can be your daily meditative practice. Heal yourself from the inside out.

Where you'll be

My house dates back to 1880. It’s the perfect combination of old and quirky mixed with new and modern. From the Hydrangeas that greet you at the door to the green couch in the living room, it’s a bright space filled with vintage and mid century modern inspired furniture.
