Our home for the week...
I never planned on being a chef. I knew that my strengths were organization, healing, and creation. I went to a traditional culinary school, but I never had a desire to be stuck in a high stress, windowless kitchen for minimum wage and claw my way up.
To me, food was about stories, sharing, and healing. I was more comfortable in the front-of-house in restaurants, where I could interact personally with people around food, even though I wasn’t preparing it.
It wasn’t until I began teaching cooking classes that I found a way to combine hospitality and cooking. From there I began cooking for retreats and had a crazy dream that I might be able to make a living creating healing foods and supporting transformational gatherings through food.
I moved from San Francisco to Maui, dedicated to following this crazy dream, and shifted all my energy into learning about healing through food and building a business.
Add your CLASSES & EDUCATORS
Whether you live on the island or you're joining us from the mainland, classes are easy to add into your schedule to fully customize your experience!
Most of our students purchase multiple classes so they can learn as much as possible on the trip! Classes are timed so you can easily get from one location to the other. Some classes are being held in different locations some days, so extra travel time has been added to the schedule to get from one location to another, but all are walking distance from the cabins.
If you are a local photographer living on Maui, get your mandatory Camp Pass here to recieve your 50% off codes!
