My passion for cooking was cultivated by my French grandmother when I was too small to even see the top of the stove. In 2006 I decided to leave my corporate life behind and turn that passion into a business. I started Cooking by the Bay as a dinner delivery service. In 2009 I added a personal chef service to help people with specific dietary needs. In doing so I became interested in learning more about the connection between our health and the foods we eat.
That journey led me to the Holistic Culinary Arts program at Bauman College, where I learned so much more about healthy eating and therapeutic cooking. In 2010 I graduated as a Certified Natural Chef with a strong desire to share the fundamentals of healthy cooking with others. One night I was hired to teach a hands-on class for 4 couples. Everyone had such fun and learned so much about simple changes that can make a huge difference in eating and being healthier... and the next stage of Cooking by the Bay was born - hands-on cooking classes that focus on seasonal, organic, whole foods.
It’s the perfect combination – I get to share my passion for cooking and my knowledge of healthy basics with others, all while having a great time. I hope you’ll join me one day soon….
