Welcome to the Back To Basics Program

If you feel like you never really learned to make cooking a habit and the idea of it makes you a little nervous, you're in the right place!

This is for you if:
 
You often get overwhelmed in the kitchen and don’t know where to start.
 
You feel like you’re not a good cook and never will be so why try? 
 
You feel like cooking takes so much time and never turns out well.
 
You’ve always wanted to be able to cook well for yourself and your family but never learned how.
 
I get it. 
 
Cooking can feel hard sometimes. Especially when you never really learned how. 
 
But what if it could be easy?
 
Cooking has the power to change your life.
 
I don’t say that lightly. 
 
It has the power to change the way you look at food and your overall relationship to it. 
 
Imagine being able to just throw things together in the kitchen and have it taste good because you're confident in all your cooking skills.
 
Imagine going to the grocery store and buying what you need based on what looks good and intuitively knowing how to put a meal together. 
 
You look at everything at the farmers market or in the produce aisle and you know how to cook pretty much everything. You get to decide what you’re going to create.
 
While you’re cooking you taste something and just know what it needs to take it from flat to fabulous 
 
Cooking CAN turn into one of the most beautiful parts of your day when you know what you're doing. 
 
No one is born a great cook.  
 
 
Like anything else you learn by doing.
 
It just takes is a little commitment to develop a new practice that fits in your life.
 
When you develop these skills you have them for life. 
 
You get to learn how to nourish yourself and those you love with these simple skills. Pretty special in my opinion. 
 
I created this online program to get you cooking with confidence.
 
I will walk you through all you need to transform you from being someone who struggles in the kitchen to someone with total badass-ness! 
 
When we finish our 5 weeks together you’ll be able to come home (or maybe your already thinking about dinner in through the day like me 😉 ), open the fridge and whip up something healthy and delicious without much effort at all. 
 
You’ll be able to impress your family and friends and even enjoy having people for dinner because you’ll want to get in the kitchen and create something beautiful you can share with your  people.
 
This is different from most cooking classes because I’m teaching you a foundation of skills to make cooking a regular part of your day….like showering or tying your shoes 🙂 
 
I break it all down; shopping, pantry set up, seasoning, flavour pairing, basic cooking techniques and building your kitchen intuition into practical steps that you’ll understand, building life skills you’ll have forever!
 
This program is all about teaching you to shift your mindset and look at your kitchen in a new way. It's all about empowering you so you can make cooking your own. Because once you learn the skills you get to be your own creative genius! 
 
We'll be focused on a new skill to practice with videos, recipes and more to build on each week:
 
Week 1: Knife Skills & Seasoning
Week 2: Stovetop Cooking; Master sautés, pan searing, blanching and properly searing with each technique
Week 3: How to Roast Everything
Week 4: Mastering The Sauce
Week 5: Slow Cooking & Braising
 
We start small and build week by week so you’ll be your own kitchen ninja by the end of the program and I’ll be there with you ever step of the way! Plus you'll have the content forever so you can make it fit into your life and come back to it anytime.
 
I promise to take away all the anxiety and stress you feel around the whole cooking process so you come out of this 5 weeks with total kitchen confidence! 
 
Here's just a few things you'll learn to cook;
  • The perfect roast chicken
  • Pan seared pork chops with maple mustard pan sauce
  • Classic enchiladas
  • Panko crusted tofu
  • The magical multipurpose white sauce

And so many techniques to give you the confidence to create your own masterpieces in the kitchen!

FAQs

Q: How is this different a meal plan?

A: The problem with meal plans is they can feel too structured and life gets in the way to follow them exactly week to week which is often why people give up on cooking all together. The idea of this program is to help you develop the skills and habits in the kitchen that will support your specific lifestyle. By the end of it you'll know who to fit cooking into your everyday routine and it won't feel like a chore. You'll be able to pull together a meal in any situation whether it's planning your meals for the week or make something on the fly. You'll even feel confident to have friends for dinner on the weekend! 

Q: What if I don't even know how to boil water?

A: Perfect. We're starting with a blank slate and this is for you! The program is designed to help you go from knowing nothing in the kitchen to feeling confident. 

Q: How is this different from taking a class in person?

A: The thing about classes that you take in person is you learn it in the moment but sometimes you walk away and if you don't put it into practice right away the learning gets lost. This program is built to have the weekly accountability to help you take action and practice what we're learning right away. You also have the ability to ask questions as you go through the program so you'll have that extra level up support as you're learning. And when you sign up you get all the resources for life! You can go back to them anytime if you forget something or need a little refresher. I'll also be updating the course with new things to keep it as current and helpful as possible based on your feedback.

Q: When does the program start?

A: Anytime you're ready!

Q: Will I learn to cook gluten free/vegan/paleo/vegetarian?

A: No. This isn't for specific diets, instead it's all about cooking techniques and using them to work for your own tastes. I don't believe in diets. What I do believe in is empowering you with skills in the kitchen so you can make the choices that work best for you. With any of the recipes I'll always talk about possible substitutions but the focus is always on real food and techniques in the kitchen. 

Q: What if I can't cook at home every night? 

A: No problem! Again this is meant to be flexible for your real life so the lessons are flexible with 3 recipes for you to try through the week whenever works for you. You can cook one or you can cook them all. The idea is to get you experimenting and trying new things in a sustainable way.

Q: What if I'm a really bad cook?

A: I'll change your mind on that one. Everyone of us has a natural intuition when it comes to cooking. My job is to show you how to tap into that, teach you all the techniques you'll ever need, plus give you the space and support to practice and build your confidence. 

 

Q: What's the cost?

A: The price is $197 for 5 weeks of fun with me plus a lifetime of kitchen skills.
