Hello From Chef "S"

The Details About Me:

I live to serve.

My life has been made rich by my love of people and, well, to be frank their putting up with me, oh, and loving me in return.

I am 69 years old and teach and consult with people to help them eat better, but more than that, to achieve their dreams. We use a wide variety of tools to get there. We incorporate spirituality, appropriate and doable exercise, 

 

I also run the marathon, teach classes for both adults and children, write books, create computer programs, and play both the guitar and piano. I don't really enjoy talking about myself please see the testimonials for further information about me: https://sayrecooking.wixsite.com/my-site/general-5
