The Organic Teaching Kitchen

I am Susan Chasen, a professionally trained Health Coach through The Institute for Integrative Nutrition, offering classes, gatherings, and parties for age four through adult. My philosophy is simple, there is no one diet right for everyone. In 2012, I opened The Organic Teaching Kitchen, equipped with a “teaching kitchen and organic garden” in Croton-on-Hudson, NY. The kitchen and garden provide sustenance, inspiring the basics of good nutrition. The Teaching Kitchen is a classroom where you learn how and where to shop, how to stock a pantry, how to simplify cooking, how to food prep, and how to cook seasonally using local+organic whole foods.
