The Real Food Academy decided months ago to add adult cooking classes to it's calendar. However, finding the right chef to teach that class did not come easy. As you know at the Real Food Academy, our #1 slogan is "We Don't Change the Dish, We Change the Ingredients". In other words we clean up the recipes that we already love. We use only natural and organic ingredients, we are very selective with the type of sweeteners we use, no refined flours, gluten free (when possible) etc. It's not always easy to find chefs that share in those convictions, and that's why we are so happy to introduce Pilar Munné.
Starting in April, Chef Pilar will teach a class every Wednesday morning at 11 AM. See our calendar for details. And if you like her as much as we think you will we will be adding more class time as needed.
Pilar Munné was born in Barcelona, Spain where she worked as a dietitian with her own private practice before moving to Miami. Here, her passion for food, and especially sustainable food practices inspired her to enroll at the Natural Gourmet Institute, a health-supportive culinary school in New York City to become a chef for health and sustainability.
She is a member of the Spanish Dietetic Association and the author of "Mismos Alimentos...Menos Calorías" (Grupo Planeta) published in 2012 in Spain. She contributes regularly with different magazines and newspapers like Glamour España, Vogue España and La Vanguardia among others. She writes her blog Thesmartspoon.com where she cooks and photographs health-supportive recipes.
