 "Don't let healthy eating scare you. Not only is it simple and affordable, you can be as creative as you want to be!"

Vanessa Percher has been cooking up a storm in Montreal since 2005. Vanessa’s celiac disease diagnosis early on in her career transformed her life and motivated her to go to India to study Ayurvedic healing through food. Over the years, she has merged her knowledge of Eastern Ayurvedic cooking with her professional Western cooking background that also includes a degree from the St-Pius Culinary Institute, certificates in Applied Nutrition as well as Vegetarian Nutrition from the Alive Academy of Natural Health and participation at the Natural Gourmet Institute in New York City.
