Sue is passionate about teaching cooking classes and wants to inspire you to create food that's both sharable and delicious. Sue's passion for real food began in 2004 while working as a Brand Manager for a major processed food company. She began to critically evaluate the ingredients in the food she marketed. She eventually moved on to work within the local foods and sustainable agriculture communities, honing her knowledge of real food from the ground up.
In 2016, as a mom of 4, she founded Real Food 4 Kids, where she teaches hands-on cooking classes and food education classes to kids. She found her passion for teaching others about food, including where food comes from, how it's produced, and how people can have a role in creating the food they love to eat. Her cooking classes will give you the confidence to prepare real food from scratch in your own homes that you can share with friends and family.
