A Message from the Barefoot Cook
There’s a quote by Khalil Gibran that stirs my soul like a bowl of fresh-whipped cream:
“Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.”
I‘m Amanda Love, The Barefoot Cook. I teach families, farmers + freedom-seeking food-lovers how to reclaim the power of simple, nourishing cooking – and lead happier, more harmonious lives.
My workshops, classes + retreats get back to the beautiful basics – the ancient food preparation techniques that our ancestors knew about, but we’ve forgotten. I’m an advocate for high-pleasure meals made with high-quality ingredients. And yes – that includes grass-fed beef, pastured eggs, and hand-churned butter.
I get around – and so does my food. I’ve roamed the nation in a VW van as a traveling chef, sauteed + seared at silent meditation ashrams, cultured kombucha + sourdough bread inside progressive prisons, prepped healing feasts for celebrity clients, flicked pine needles out of my soup in permaculture kitchens, and received standing ovations and awards for my commitment to organic food + sustainable eating.
Ready to kick off your shoes, crank up the stove, and celebrate the life-affirming power of one really good meal?
Come cook with me.
Thank you so much for your help. You are truly wonderful and I appreciate your company as well! You are so great at what you do! It was so nice to have someone sit down and help me sort through everything. I feel empowered and determined to get on the road to healing and feel better than I have ever felt before!!
It was so wonderful spending time with you on Friday! It’s so easy to be with you – talk with you. Thank you so much for your consult and also sharing the photos of Dr Price’s work. The photos made a profound difference in my heart and understanding of his work. Parts of the presentation are deeply sad, but in that are very motivating. I want to be part of your team on this mission – I feel it in the core of my being. I’m excited!
I loved Amanda’s “Nourishing Foods Nutrition and Cooking Workshop”. There was so much information packed into this FULL ON weekend. For me, it was about fine-tuning. I was already familiar with many of the topics and principles, that she covered. However, there was A LOT that was still new to me. As a long time vegan & vegetarian, I plan to incorporate more animal products into my diet. Amanda did a great job explaining succinctly how animal products are crucial for human health. Besides the incredible food that was prepared, I loved tasting all of the delicious lacto-fermented beverages and learning how easy they are to make!
I am so proud of you and all your doing at the conference this year! I think it’s so great that you’re training the executive chef and all his peeps on how to cook real nutrient dense foods…you go girl…that is awesome! See you soon & safe travels to you! –Shane
