I’d had the desire to transition to a gluten-free, refined sugar-free diet for a while, but Chef Kathryn was really the one who inspired me to finally make that transition. She offered advice, tips and beautiful recipes and made the whole process not only easy, but also pleasurable. Her Loving Desserts Workshop was a wonderful reminder that eating healthy doesn’t mean you have to give up on delicious sweets. I really appreciated Chef Kathryn’s professionalism and her willingness to share her knowledge and years of experience connecting people through healthy and beautiful food. She approaches nutrition and wellness as an art and a spiritual experience; her vision is contagious!

My husband and I have had the pleasure of sampling Chef Kathryn’s amazing dishes. Some highlights for us include her paleo banana bread and her preparation of pasture-raised, local, and sustainable beef. She is personal, thoughtful and passionate about food. She has inspired us to incorporate “slow foods” into our culinary lifestyle. Our weekly trips to the farmers markets allow us to support our local farmers, and buy food that is both sustainably sourced and delicious!

I really loved Chef Kathryn’s Loving Desserts Workshop. She did a great job of tying the topic of self-love into our conversation along with the cooking instruction, and the class helped me to revisit my relationship with sugar in a healthy way.
