Born & raised in a food centric (farming) family, Chef Holly can grow, forage and hunt for food nearly anywhere. Diverse neighbors helped her grow a global palate while collecting recipes from great cooks for over 30 years. Culinary training at Ivy Tech and classes in 4 different countries round off her education. Managing her weight loss (130 pounds) and keeping healthy by eating well & playing outdoors for the last 20 years, she’s full of great tips and inspiration.
In her own words: Everyone has something to learn. My students leave class feeling confident, enthusiastic and (often) full. My teaching style is highly tuned to whomever is in class (yes, all of you!). A scientist by training, my approach to the culinary and pastry arts ranges from detailed science and chemistry to whimsical variations that make food fun and interesting. The group setting is one of support, sharing, laughter and camaraderie. Just try it!
