Lake Chelan Cooking Classes 2017
Join Tara on a culinary adventure and optimize your health this summer!
The FoodRemedy is the leading culinary medicine cooking school in Ireland inspiring wellness through wholefoods that nourish the body and mind. It was founded by plant-based Chef, Fanny Binder, and Nutritional Therapist, Tara Zuluaga Dorgan.
Tara is originally from the Chelan Valley and has been living abroad for nearly 10 years. She is bringing her family home this summer and is excited to share her skills with the community. Tara is the director of Root Health Nutrition, specializing in digestive health, autoimmune disorders and chronic disease. She holds a bachelor degree in Health, Community and Applied Ecology from Western Washington University and a diploma in Naturopathic Nutrition from the College of Naturopathic Medicine in Ireland, where she now lectures and supervises the clinical studies of nutrition students in their final year.
Tara is a wholefood enthusiast with years of experience as a chef in America and Ireland. She believes that food can be your medicine and trusts that using nutrition as a tool strengthens our innate response to heal.
The FoodRemedy cooking school philosophy
At the FoodRemedy, the intention is to inspire and ignite a love of real food, get creative in the kitchen and help people find their own path to wellness. Our classes reverberate the concept that everyone is biochemically unique and there is no one right way to health. All of the classes and courses are designed to provide a deeper understanding of food choices and impart a confidence to cook delicious food in balance to maintain health physically, mentally and emotionally.
The school does not follow one particular diet (everybody has their own food journey), however, all classes are free of dairy, gluten and refined sugar by default providing an anti-inflammatory baseline.
