As both an accomplished chef and busy mother of two, I understand how to bridge the gap between gourmet cuisine and healthy home cooking. My cooking classes, culinary tours, and food articles reflect this. In each, I combine my passion for cooking, my dedication to healthy, flavourful food, and my desire for simplicity in the kitchen. I love to encourage other cooks, to help them find the enthusiasm and inspiration in cooking that is so often lost in our busy lives.
I ensure that the home cook will succeed at using gourmet menus, ethnic ingredients, and unfamiliar cooking techniques. I do this through the use of my fail-proof recipes, clear step-by-step instruction, and friendly encouragement. I offer fresh, unpretentious food along with hundreds of gourmet cooking tips and techniques gleaned from my years of personal and professional experience.
- I believe that there is no reason to endure unfulfilling food, even when we are busy.
- Food does not have to taste dull to be good for our health.
- Food does not have to be complicated to taste fantastic.
“Delicious food, great company, friendly atmosphere, and hundreds of fantastic recipes and tips! Chef Heidi's classes are an absolute joy to attend.”
~ Kelly Zaharko, Victoria, BC
“Heidi seems to be able to teach eight different things at once and yet still answer your questions and offer tastes and smells of exotica. She will even stop to share a tip on how to get young kids to eat kale!”
~ Doreen Sutherland, High School Art & Home-Ec Teacher
