Chef Rachel Z

Natural Foods Culinary Instructor, Chef and Macrobiotic Counselor

Cooking is a way of sharing love for life and food with others. Macrobiotic cooking, in particular, is the art of living a “great life”—creating radiant health through balanced eating and lifestyle choices. My personal practice includes a combination of a macrobiotic, whole foods diet, gentle yoga, nature walks, outdoor swimming.

I offer private and group cooking classes, macrobiotic health consultations, boutique catering, and personal chef services. I specialize in macrobiotic, gluten-free, vegan, and other special diets aimed at disease prevention and reversal. I am passionate about guiding individuals to make gradual changes that will offer lasting health benefits.

I also teach Macrobiotic and Ayurvedic cooking classes at The Natural Epicurean Academy of Culinary Arts, including weekend public classes and professional culinary training modules.

I specialize in health-conscious cuisine with a focus on vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and Macrobiotic foods. I enjoy making ethnic-inspired dishes with fresh herbs, spices, and whole foods ingredients from Latin America, the Mediterranean, India, and Japan. I also love to prepare farm-to-table meals that are all-American, using the best of what is locally grown.

I look forward to sharing my love of food and health with you.

-Rachel Zierzow
