Eating as if Life Matters
My mentor, Bill Tara, a brilliant teacher of macrobiotics uses this phrase to inspire people, so I borrowed it from him. Eating as is life matters is about more than your personal health and wellness. It’s about the bigger picture of life on this planet that nourishes our very being.
For this cooking class series, we get serious…down to the nitty gritty, so to speak and talk about why we eat. We all know what we should eat, but the ‘why’ of the whole thing can bog us down in esoteric mysticism and confusion (not Confucianism; confusion…).
There’s a lot to the food on your plate. And a lot of questions about food and its quality…and its impact on Mother Nature and the collective health of humanity. We will look at it all, discuss it and see if we can come to some conclusions so you can make the best choices for healthy living.
Trust me; you’re gonna love these classes.
Honoring World Traditions
Sunday, May 4 - 11:00 AM to 2:30 PM - $30.00
If you look back, each and every culture, while evolving differently because of location and climate, had one common thread running through them…respect
for life and the planet. Understanding our dependence on nature, ancient cultures developed cooking techniques and dishes we still see to this day. Join me as we explore a return to tradition and look at ways to cook that respect life and honor ancient cultures.
The World of Food
Sunday, June 8 - 11:00 AM to 2:30 PM - $30.00
The good news is that we can get anything, anytime; the bad news is that we can get anything, anytime. In a world where indulgence is expected and the exotic not so exotic, how do we reign in and create delectable foods to serve our families without compromising other cultures’ abilities to live well; without compromising the planet; without compromising human health? In this class, we explore the world of food in all its glory and ridiculousness and discover ways to nourish our bodies simply and deliciously as authentic humans would.
What Women Want (Guys…you won’t want to miss this one!)
Sunday, September 14 - 11:00 AM to 2:30 PM - $30.00
An age-old question, what…do…women…want? Well, I can only help in the kitchen with this one. One day we want sweet; the next salty; the next coffee; the next bread…and always, always, we want chocolate! What’s it all about? You’ll have to come to class to find out…and guys, I would highly recommend you join this class as well…seeing as you have to live with us.
Men, Men, Men (A must take class for both men and women!)
Sunday, October 12 - 11:00 AM to 2:30 PM - $30.00
Ah, men. We love them; can’t live without them. We want them to be healthy and strong, full of vitality. And yet, cancer and heart disease can steal the health of our beloved boys. Men and women alike need to join forces to keep our men, young and old healthy and strong. In this class, we will be cooking food to keep men healthy…that they will love!
Happy, Healthy Holidays!
Sunday, November 2 - 11:00 AM to 2:30 PM - $30.00
The holiday season is right around the corner and with it…tree decorating, cooking, baking, shopping, gift-wrapping, parties, family get-togethers…and stress. We don’t sleep enough, eat right or exercise regularly…leaving us tired and lethargic on January 2. Want to sail through the holidays, managing stress with grace and with enough stamina to enjoy each and every minute of the season? Then this class is for you!
Tired of Being Tired
Sunday, December 7 - 11:00 AM to 2:30 PM - $30.00
Everybody I meet is tired. How can we all be so beat all the time? It’s no surprise really. We are tired simply because we don’t fuel our bodies with the proper food to create stamina and energy to burn. And before you even think it; yes, it’s delicious…so much so that you’ll wonder why you wasted so much time fatigued when all you had to do is eat yummy, plant-based foods.
The Best Deal in Town!!
