Over the next two months, Living Light will be taking its FUNdamentals class on the road. This class is the foundation of all our other classes – our flagship, as we like to call it. It’s absolutely packed with information about raw culinary arts and is designed to give anyone the base upon which to make a lifestyle change to whole, living, planet friendly foods. But is this base enough?

Most recently, we took FUNdamentals to San Diego where it was taught by two of our shining stars: Alicia Ojeda and Brenda Hinton. I spoke with one of our recent graduates, Kristen Johnson, about her experience both at the class in San Diego and how it led her to Living Light. Kristen grew up in San Diego, so she combined a trip to see her family with the opportunity to give Living Light a try. She and a friend attended the class and were impressed with both of the instructors’ knowledge and love for Living Light. Alicia brought the history to life while Brenda explained how the school works and what it can do for you. Both Kristen and her friend left the class with a kindled passion for raw foods – and Kristen with the intention to learn more.

Kristen is now a certified Associate Raw Food Chef and Instructor and Raw Pastry Chef. When she returned home to Brooklyn, New York after the FUNdamentals class, she got to work right away – putting her new knowledge into practice. But she knew she needed more. Her journey began at an “on the road” class, and in just a couple months’ time it included a Living Light certification. Fabulous!

Whether you’re as driven as Kristen or if you just want to get your feet wet, keep an eye on our website for a FUNdamentals class on a road near you. It’s a great way to get started and will send you home ready to do your own sprouting, juicing and more. And who knows – it may begin a raw culinary education that will change your life path forever.

    As we come to the end of the first week of chef the students are a mix of emotions. They’ve been busy all week learning new recipes, working on  demos to present next week, creating new recipes and absorbing information on how to create their own teaching business.   

    Working Hard on the Catered Dinner

    Today is one of the hardest days, but also one of the most fun!  They get to see Jennifer Cornbleet in action, giving a Why Raw? talk to the public, then they’ll enjoy a full brunch, including delicious scones. They’ll watch some talks, get a tour of the Living Light kitchen, and an inside look at how to use the audio/visual equipment at Living Light.  This is all to prepare them for next week when they become the teachers!  Right now they are working on the pinnacle of the week, the student catered meal, which they’ll serve tonight to 40+ guests.  It’s very exciting but also a lot of information to absorb.  I’m very proud of how hard they are working!
