Hi there, I'm Catherine! 

I'm so happy you stopped by my little corner of the internet. So, are you hungry? Me too! What to eat, is the question. As an organic produce grower, classically trained personal chef who eats mostly plants, and a dietetics student, I'm always thinking about food.... how it looks, smells, tastes, makes us feel and affects our environment. I regularly geek out on the science behind what makes plants scrumptious and why we should eat more of them. I love to share my experiments with YOU! So grab an apron, sharpen your knife and let's go!
