A classically trained chef with over 20 years’ experience in the culinary world and a mother of two, Amy is driven by her belief that good, clean food, cooked with love, has the ability to heighten the senses, bring people together, and that a positive relationship with food is essential to healthy living
It all started in a little town in Laos, where she helped friends start up and run a small restaurant. Sitting around a local feast each night before service, Amy gained great admiration for the culture’s passion and talent with fresh foods. She began to discover the connection between what we eat and how we feel. Following her taste buds, she went on to travel throughout the countries of Europe and Asia, tucking into kitchens in search of secrets at every opportunity. This started an everlasting trend and now Amy continues to explore the globe, wander its many markets and gather inspirational recipes for use back home.
For over a decade, Amy ran her own Toronto based catering and personal chef business, Say-She-Ate. Cooking for multiple clients with special dietary restrictions, along with becoming a mother led Amy to expand her culinary studies into the world of nutrition by becoming a Culinary Nutrition Expert in 2016. Amy is now combining her passions for cooking and nutrition in her new cooking school where Amy’s mission is to empower her community with confidence, ease, and loads of fun in the kitchen.
