The Cook Awakening

Grain and Sugar-Free Potlucks
When we make changes in our eating patterns and other forms of self care, we can feel like we’re the only ones in the world that live like this. Not so! I host the potlucks as a community offering of tribe building.
You are not alone. Come eat good, nourishing food with other people who are interested in healing and living a good life. Offered monthly on third Saturdays, see the home page for the next scheduled potluck.
Cooking classes are nutrient dense, gluten and dairy-free. Selected classes have a paleo/low carb/SCD/GAPS focus.
Classes offered by request.
Have a favorite traditional foods or food allergen topic you don’t see here? Contact Durga and see about creating a class tailored to your needs.
Call to schedule a class today. Host a class of 5 or more participants, and you receive that class free of charge!
Request a class that Durga hosts, you and she will promote the class, and you receive the class for half price.
Group class fees: $55 per person, four person minimum

Many of us never learned how to cook growing up. In a culture that focuses on convenience foods, knowing your way around the kitchen is no longer a given.
If you did cook growing up, it’s likely to have included foods that you’re learning have compromised your health in some way.
Cooking is fun! Durga’s approach, as with all her work, involves developing and following your intuition and senses to discover what is delicious and nourishing for you. Remember when your mother told you not to play with your food? Well, you can forget that now. It’s time to dig your hands in – smell, taste, see, touch and love what will become your body and soul.
Recipes are simply suggestions. Find some that you like, and with Durga’s help, learn to improvise on their themes using ingredients that are good for you!
