Thanks again for teaching us how to cook simply and well”

A Word From Your Instructor:

Chef Joanna

Hi, I’m Chef Joanna and I teach people how to cook to thrive at any age.

After 7 years of working as a culinary instructor, I’m more a food counselor than a chef. Unlike the Chopped contestants you’ll find on the Food Network, I’m about enjoying the process of cooking and making a home- not rushing it. I care about wellness.  

My approach to healthy eating is simple. It’s about lifestyle and choosing more vegetables and whole, unprocessed foods. I learned many healthy cooking techniques working with dieticians and nutritionists over the years.

I found most people were never taught how to create healthy, tasty food. As a result, they are suffering chronic illnesses most likely caused by the foods they eat. The good news is many of those diseases can be prevented or managed by changing the foods we eat.

With a few simple techniques, my students have created dishes they are proud of. I’ve worked with students and celebrities at the Four Seasons, Children’s Hospital, and non-profits- all to teach them how to cook healthier. The reaction is always the same. They are so happy to share their new cooking knowledge with their kids, partners, and families. They feel confident knowing how to nourish themselves, too. 

My goal is to transmit all my cooking knowledge to you. We’ll meet over Zoom to cook together and you will get your cooking questions answered in real time. All the way, you’ll have access to me so that you can ask questions as you begin your ‘Cook to 100’  journey.

Akentannos” (to 100 years) !

“Chef Joanna has been hosting virtual cooking lessons at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia for the past few months and is a wonderful chef and teacher. She provides chef’s tips and tricks, answers questions, loves hearing other people share their experience, and is a warm and welcome presence on Wednesday afternoons. I have made several of her plant-based dishes and, despite my culinary limitations, they have been welcome additions to our dinner table.”

-Dr. Sze

It was so fun! I am really enjoying it and feeling more empowered and more motivated to learning how to cook. You are very patient and kind and that makes me at ease. I was so proud yesterday.  Thank you so much!!


“Chef Joanna is amazing! Every week I look forward to our weekly gatherings with work colleagues. We are lucky to virtually spend 30 minutes of very engaging cooking lessons. With having to cook more at home during the pandemic, her recipes and kitchen skills have come very handy. I have expanded my recipe repertoire and improved the quality of my nutrition. The recipes she recommends are easy, delicious, very nutritious and fun to make. Thank you!!”
