- Impress your family and friends with new, chef-made, recipes
- Something fun to do! (especially during these Covid times…)
Chef Shauna’s focus is to use her nutrition and culinary education and experience combined with her absolute love of whole food and creating healthy recipes to inspire and empower you to thrive in your kitchen.
Shauna went to culinary school for culinary skills and then culinary management. Prior to that she went to university for Food Science, Nutrition, and Psychology. She completed her culinary apprenticeship at the London Hunt and Country Club. Her first ever job was at a “ma and pa restaurant” when she was 13 years old and she has worked in almost every kitchen environment since. From food service kitchens, wedding and banquet kitchens, casual and fine dining to teaching cooking classes since 2007. Credibility and experience are important to Shauna, especially if she is teaching others.
We strongly encourage you to surround yourself with healthy food and recipes in your social media, and to continue “googling” recipes. Chef Shauna gains her inspiration for recipes by seeing what’s trending and how the culinary world is evolving. Food photographers, recipe developers, food stylists, content creators, holistic nutritionists, dietitians, and so on, are very inspirational. Shauna’s goal of the Live Well Foodie Community is to use her culinary education and experience to help you dive a little deeper into your home cooking experience. She aims to provide easy to follow recipes that teach culinary fundamentals as well as taste and look good. Whether you’re looking for a healthy breakfast recipe or something different for dinner, all of Shauna’s recipes are tried, tested and true. The Live Well Foodie Community will hopefully quickly become one of your trusted recipe sources.
Whole food. Nothing processed. Chef Shauna’s background is culinary AND nutrition. She likes to teach recipes that are “jam packed” with nutrients and fresh flavours. She believes that if you learn how to be more efficient in your kitchen, then you will really enjoy making healthy meals from scratch and feel great! She describes her recipes as “flexitarian”. She aims to give you recipes that will please vegetarians (or people trying to consume less meat), and also have the option to add in meat for meat eaters too. Some recipes are also vegan or can easily be made vegan. You can always post or email to ask for modifications to a recipe. As far as cuisine goes, she was classically French trained but her absolute favourite cooking is whatever fruits and vegetables are in season, a starch or grain and then whipping up a meal from that. She has also travelled and cooked in Thailand, Italy, Mexico, all around the United States and Canada.
No problem! ALL of the virtual cooking classes are taught on a teaching platform that you can follow along with anytime. We will set a day and time and encourage you to follow along then so that we can chat and share pictures of all of our creations. BUT if you can’t make that time, that is completely okay. Each month you can add the cooking class to your online library of classes and as mentioned above, follow along anytime. You can also pause, rewind and ask questions as you go in the teaching platform.
No, many of our foodie community members don’t have or use Facebook. It’s just an added communication tool that we use. All of the information about virtual cooking classes, recipes and contests will be in your Thursday emails. As well, you can find all of our recipes on the site (they are visible to Foodie Community Members).
They are always in the 3rd week of the month. Either Thursday evening or Sunday afternoon – depending on holidays and time of year. But again, you can follow along anytime that works for you.
Send us an email and we’ll get back to you shortly with an answer.
