Chef Stefania Patinella has seventeen years of experience teaching nutrition and healthful cooking to diverse audiences, from children and families to health care professionals. She was Founding Director of the Go!Healthy cooking, nutrition education, and gardening programs at The Children’s Aid Society, a nonprofit serving 70,000 children and families each year in New York City. There she also developed a model meal program for children, replacing all processed foods with whole-foods, plant-based recipes cooked from scratch. She also served as Executive Chef at Amherst College, where she oversaw a meal program for 1,800 students that sought to balance health, sustainability and culturally diversity. Stefania received her BA from the University of Pennsylvania and MA in Health Arts and Sciences from Goddard College. She also completed her Chef’s training at the Natural Gourmet Institute and studied herbalism at the Vermont Center for Integrative Herbalism. Mostly, though, she’s a humble lover of plants—from seed to table.
