About the lesson

First and foremost, it is important to understand the heritage and origin of the foods we eat. It immerses us in the cultures that bring us all the great flavors we enjoy and we owe our privilege to cook these foods and call them by their traditional names. So, I like to discuss the foods we eat while we cook! This includes nutritional facts, history, common applications, helpful equipment, and more.

Next, I want to make it known that there's no shame in using cheap ingredients, a few ingredients, or cooking the same meal over and over again.

You can even make foods you think are the most unhealthy option on earth and I can guarantee you it's packed with more nutrition than you can believe and 1 million times more healthy than eating out.

The trick to cooking well is following a recipe. Believe it or not, there's a right way and a wrong way to read a recipe. Once you get it down, you can master anything. That's why chefs share recipes - so anybody can do them at home!

Let's find something you and your family like and enjoy and master it! Or we can explore a new recipe together and I can show you how I would do it in your kitchen!

About Richard

I'm Richard (he.him.his.), a 32 year old BoCo native with years of professional gardening experience (yes, in that industry). With a passion for animals (I'm not a vegetarian), nutrition and agricultural science, I'm a Technical writer by trade and spend nearly every free minute birding, fishing, or cooking. My partner and I have curated more than 200 recipes, over 100 of which are main-course entrees, and all of which focus on local BUT AFFORDABLE ingredients. Stretching all over the globe, our recipes are inspired by our travels and our ambitions.

I have 6 years of experience in the local CSA scene and am a conneseuor of sorts when it comes to our local farmers' and supermarkets.
