Kimberly Keating Wohlford

I fell in love with cooking at a young age. My mother was always trying new recipes and tweaking flavors with spices and herbs. In the early 1980's I read Jane Brody's Nutrition Book: A Lifetime Guide to Good Eating for Better Health and a Martha Stewart book on Food and Entertaining, Hors d'Oeuvres, that set me on a life path of conscious eating.


Around that same time, I picked up a copy of The Mother Earth News and learned about organic gardening. I was living in the Midwest at the time where the soil is as dark and rich as a bag of potting soil. I built and planted raised beds in our tiny back yard and discovered the joy of growing - and eating - fresh vegetables and herbs. 


When my father died of a sudden heart attack at the age of 58 in 1989, I began to study the health benefits of food more seriously. Soon after, my mother was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. As I watched her health decline over the years. researching food as medicine became paramount to my own survival. 


Now with 35 years of experience preparing delicious and beautiful recipes that support good health, I'm excited to share this knowledge through these cooking classes.
