  • be inspired to go outside the box (outside a recipe) to recreate a dish based on your own palette, health needs
  • get a new understanding of the science of cooking

Beginners and intermediate chefs

  • a new chef will learn some basic skills, such as knife skills, how to make sauces, soups and meal planning
  • an experienced chef will be inspired to try different techniques, using different products and/or gadgets, and how to recreate a favorite recipe so that it’s more healthy and in line with specific health needs

During the cooking demo Joni will focus on:

  • the applied science of healthy deliciousness
  • all dayparts, including: drinks, soups, side dishes, main entrees, breakfast, lunch and dinners
  • various small appliances and gadgets
  • cooking techniques, science of cooking and how to build flavors
  • improvisational cooking
  • cooking with colors, textures, shapes and sizes
  • nutrition, cooking for specific health needs
  • recipes for raw, vegan, vegetarian, macrobiotic and paleolithic diets
