Learn to Cook Like A Chef
If you want to learn to cook, you're in the right place. That's kind of what we do around here. ;) I'm a classically trained chef who worked in restaurants and went to culinary school twice — once for pastry, and once for savory. If there's one thing I do well, it's teach people to cook in a way that's approachable. I teach in a way you can understand and make happen at home.
Why learn to cook?
If you learn to cook, you'll find it's a really important life skill, for a few reasons:
- You'll get healthier when you know how to cook for yourself
- You save a lot of money when by cooking at home
- When you learn to cook, you become a more savvy adult
- Cooking is a rewarding hobby... even if it's not second nature to you.
Cooking is something everyone used to know how to do... but these days that's just not the case. I get it, everyone loves convenience food. (Hey, I do, too!)
But when I was in my 20s, I got super suck. I was living off of burritos, frozen enchiladas, and Chinese takeout. I had to cook if I wanted to save my life.
And guess what? It worked! I went from a ton of time in the hospital for autoimmune complications to living a great life with optimal health.
This happened because I learned to cook. That's pretty awesome.
I want to teach you to cook because it's good for you, but when you learn to cook, it becomes SUPER fun as well. The best part is that you can make food exactly how you want it — even things like vegetables can become amazing with a little technique.
