There are many reasons people give for staying out of the kitchen – no time, don’t know how to cook, haven’t prepared, don’t know which is a good recipe, etc… but what if it’s something deeper, something that is rooted in the way you relate to to cooking itself, or the way you feel after having cooked for your yourself, friends or family?
This is Alma Schneider’s expertise. She is a licensed clinical social worker and a cooking coach. She understands the importance of cooking in the home, of the ability to prepare your own food, and the nourishment that home cooked meals provides for families.
She also knows from experience how many people avoid the kitchen entirely because of the way they relate to the food they prepare, the (often negative) reviews they get from their friends & family (everyone is a food critic, right?), the expectations they have on themselves to get it right… for many, the kitchen is a place to avoid at all costs.
Join us as we talk with Alma about strategies for “taking back the kitchen.” Very simple things you can do to make it easy, reduce your expectations, plan meals (her suggestion for this is fantastic), and make the kitchen a place that you look forward to being in – for the fun you can have in cooking and the nourishment that the food you make provides to your family.
