What is a culinary coach?
As a culinary coach, Hallie partners with her clients to equip them with the skills necessary to prepare wholesome, well-balanced meals for themselves and their loved ones. Coaching sessions are like personal training for culinary fitness. Hallie coaches clients through hands-on sessions how to plan for and prepare meals and desserts that are delicious, time-efficient, and health-supportive. Clients often remark that sessions with Hallie are equal parts educational and relational, leaving them nourished both in body and spirit.
Who needs a culinary coach?
Culinary coaching is ideal for those hungry to learn the life-enhancing skill of preparing healthy and delicious food. Both beginners in the kitchen and those who have been cooking for years have benefited from Hallie's coaching. Whether you're navigating the world of food allergies/sensitivities, working toward a specific health goal, or just feeling "blah" in your kitchen life, culinary coaching is designed to uplift, inspire, equip, and educate so that you gain confidence and expand your culinary creativity in the kitchen.
How does it work?
Coaching sessions take place in the comfort of your home kitchen. Prior to your session(s) Hallie will work with you to create a game plan of what you'd like to cover and learn, tailoring everything to your needs. Her goal is to help you reach your goals. She'll let you know what ingredients to have on hand for each session (or, for a small fee, she can do the shopping for you if you'd rather skip a trip to the store). If you don't have much cooking equipment, no worries. Hallie has a complete supply of kitchenware that she'll bring along.
Rates include session planning, digital and printed copies of all recipes/guides used, and hands-on instruction.
