Good nutrition plays an essential role in the journey to total wellness and cooking is one of the ultimate forms of self-care. A lack of confidence is usually the reason behind saying, “I don’t like to cook”. Ready to improve your kitchen confidence? Join Executive Chef Daniel Vater as he teaches simple tips and techniques to help boost your culinary self-esteem.

Learn all about kitchen must-haves like:

  • Kitchen ABC’s – commonly used culinary terms and what they mean
  • Essential seasonings to complete your cupboard and spice up your life
  • The importance of “everything in its place” when it comes to meal prep, and recipe reading
  • Why cleaning as you go lessens anxiety around cooking, and how creating that habit is a form of self-care.
