Everybody has a food story. I believe that our relationship with food is primal, fundamental, and the tone of this relationship is set in childhood. The way we approach food in our adulthood has much, if not everything, to do with how we related to food as children, and how our parents and caregivers related to food as well.
I meet so many people in my culinary work who either suffer from extremely dysfunctional relationships with food or at least have some issues. And there are many grown, fully functioning, otherwise successful adults who simply don’t know how to feed themselves. They live on-take out and frozen food, and that means they are missing out on some of the greatest joys in life; exploring food markets, cooking, and sitting down to a home made, delicious and nutritious meal.
That’s why I don’t call myself a private chef or cooking teacher, though if that’s what you want, I can provide that service too. I don’t want to just teach you a few recipes; I want to ignite a passion in you for great food. I want to share with you the excitement I feel, visiting a foreign food shop; inhaling the aroma of exotic spices in the air, or imagining what tasty dishes could be made form the unfamiliar ingredients lining the shelves.
Contact me for more details, and to tell me what you're looking for in a culinary coach.
