Shed the work week and try new twists in the kitchen with a Friday night culinary celebration. We hand-pick the freshest in-season produce from local farmer's markets and deliver them to the kitchen classroom. In this hands-on cooking guests work together to create a gourmet dinner using the featured produce. Then together we sit and together we feast!
Radical Cooks founder Nina Zippay’s passion for sustainable cuisine evolved at age seventeen. When her father became seriously ill he was forced to cut out much of what constituted his regular diet. She took it upon herself to rehabilitate her family’s diet reducing salt, fat, and sugars. She began cooking seasonally and from the source. Such practices helped not only extend her father’s life but transformed her life in the process. Her greatest inspiration now comes from her own children from whom she derives her passion for delicious and healthy meals and the importance of giving it careful and loving preparation.
Nina Zippay can advise absolute beginners to advanced home cooks, moms, dads, and caregivers for the healing. To have someone right by your side advising you on how to begin, where to find the best ingredients and how to make your meals the healthy way without sacrificing the flavor (or depleting your bank account) is the best way to sustain change. So now all you have to do is reach down at the root and change
Cooking with local, seasonal ingredients is something we all aspire to. It celebrates where you live, allows you to meet your farmers at the market, and helps you eat a wider range of fruits and vegetables. According to traditional Chinese medicine philosophies, by imbibing seasonal foods consistent with the external environment we remain in harmony with nature, adapt better to changes, and stay healthy. But how to start? And how to sustain?
At Radical Cooks we believe all change begins at the root.
Let's get radical.
