Food should be prepared with butter and love- cooking demo

Cinnamon Berg is a classically trained chef with a passion for food who loves to share that passion with others. In her career she has worked in many local restaurants and has traveled far and wide for catering events. Her love of grilling, utilizing seasonal ingredients and spontaneity are knowledge and skills gained through these years of experience as a cook. 
Although most of her life has been in and around Seattle she spent some time in Hollywood working with a former sous chef of Spago and the originator of California Pizza Kitchen. The importance of local, organic ingredients and our role as leaders in this movement toward sustainability were some of the many lessons she learned and value most. Her interest in teaching came about through these experiences and having children. She has taught kids of every age in schools and the Youngstown Cultural Art’s Center how simple it can be to create fresh nutritious meals. From the importance of knife skills to the subtle art of bread making and how making food can be a truly sense stirring experience she has classes for everyone.
