Cooking Classes

As many of you have probably heard, Kung Foods has changed its staff/direction, without any new location set yet in sight. It has been a hard and fast change, but doors are continually opening and expanding for new projects and ventures in San Diego County…

However, for now, I will be offering private cooking classes, for 2-7 people, to be held at your homes, or friends home, or other locations you might find!! Imagine: invite some friends over, have everyone bring over wines or juices, relax in the comfort of your own home as we go step by step through a full, gourmet vegan dinner – using your own utensils and kitchenware so that there is no further question as to how to precisely make your favorite vegan dish….

So for Spring, I will be offering a series of cooking courses for you – taking the spirit of bold tastes and optimal health in new directions, as we learn together how to grow in our own cooking abilities, and in our sharing of vegan foods to our friends, family, and for those in our lives who ‘just don’t understand.’

I am in the process of checking out new commercial spaces where we can host public cooking classes for now, and hope to have a location locked in within the next few months.
The commercial space will start out being used for a 4 course long series. An overview of each class will be posted here, at the website, as well as a sign up sheet for each class.

Short weekend in San Fran.

Happy Birthday Andreas!!!!


My purpose for this visit was the B-Day weekend of one of my favorite people in the world. Andreas! However, I arrived and he was sick… The kind of sick where you cant leave your bed, and feel bad for having one of your friends fly up from San Diego. But, what is my favorite thing to do in SF, aside from visit friends???

EAT of course!!!!

I only got to enjoy fresh doses of Airborne, lots of H20, and two meals with dear Andreas. First quick stop was to get Pizza from this village coffee/cafe place in Mission. Roasted yams, portobellos, and baked tofu, over a yummy sage sauce.

We ventured down again to mission for breakfast the next day. I believe the Spanish breakfast spot was called Sunshine Cafe. Here I ate a simple and yummy rice, beans, homemade vegan chorizo, and tortilla breakfast, accompanied by a spinach sambusa of some sorts. Truthfully, I forgot what it was called (This is where Andreas sends me an email correcting me of my incorrect food lingo!) But it was delicious served with a spicy homemade hot sauce! And the homemade chorizo was of the best I’ve ever had!
Next on to:


Another friend of mine (who I’d like to say I helped convert to veg-head some what!) Has the pleasure of living 2 blocks from Herbivore. For dinner I had the Lentil Loaf, my friend had the lemon caper penne pasta. Both were delicious! Unfortunately, we got our German Chocolate Cake to go, a result of being to over stuffed. My sneaky friend managed to let me forget about it, until I was gone from the city. I only heard it was delicious:)

Next Breakfast:


If you work in the restaurant Industry, as I, many of us loathe brunch. Early hours, hungry, hung-over people to feed, social gatherings you wish you could attend. But boy do we enjoy going out to eat brunch! Breakfast can always start my day out right.
I was first to arrive and eat brunch at the classic vegan restaurant, Herbivore yet again. Here, my favorite, of anywhere, is the Blueberry Cornbread. Thick, soft in the middle, crisp crust, topped with melted earth balance. I had to literally push it aside before I got full, and forget about the rest of my meal! Sad to say I wasn’t to impressed with the tofu scramble. Potatoes=yum, along with the HUGE tempeh breakfast burrito that my friend filled up on.

We were quite tired, wishing they had a liquor license to serve us organic mimosa’s! Maybe next time! Here’s a funny early morning pic, desperately waiting for coffee.

He loves his album Leaf track Jacket!
