Feedbacks on the intensive training by students


One of the beautiful amazing students who recently attended the intensive training in Lisbon inspired me this good idea of publishing their personal comments, feelings and experiences about the course which I am happy to share with you !


"My time with Kay was a beautiful experience. From the first day to the last I was uncovering the true meaning of good food with theory then creating a storm in the kitchen. The food is of the highest quality I have ever tasted and the way Kay teaches is excellent. I really am forever thankful to her for showing me her knowledge, expertise, skills, recipes, how to do it all in practical tutorials and demonstrations. The real test was when I got home and was let loose on my own. A credit to her training was that I was amazed at how well I had picked up what she taught me and I had family commenting that they were impressed more than when they dined at a Michelin star restaurant. They were stunned with the flavours, tastes and raw dishes that much they want to go through the training themselves. I'm thankful for Kay opening her kitchen and heart to pass on her magic. Life has just got very interesting and I know it's what she has sparked in me and I hope to be able to energise more people into delicious raw foods and impact their lives just as much as Kay has with me. Thank you, thank you, thank you. From the depths of my soul I will forever be in your debt for showing me the way with your wisdom and teachings".

"A revealing dream, one of those that open the doors of consciousness and change your vision of things. Kay's intensive course was crazy, my first approach to crudivegan cooking, through a brief, exhaustive and ingenious serious training, in which the essential theoretical and technical bases of raw cooking are discussed. Furthermore, through the precious recipe book, where everything is explained clearly and exhaustively, you will be perfectly able to give more space to this cuisine in your daily life. I believe that happiness is such only if shared. Only with our own experiences can we create and encourage others to change, thanks kay for sharing your precious knowledge".

"From our first email exchanges with Kay she sounded completely natural and trustworthy, so I knew from the beginning that her course in raw vegan cuisine was the right choice out of the options available on the ‘market’.

Few months later, when I started the actual course (October 2018), I realised my intuition was right. I was happy to receive a very intelligently structured program, which included both theory and practice.

Kay is an extremely well documented angel with a great heart and talent in transferring her knowledge from teacher to student and so ready to help, encourage and boost the confidence in her students. I can only be grateful that I met her and hope to always remain friends.

Among precious things I learned at this course both about the deep meanings of raw movement and about how food can heal the body and the mind, I acquired all the necessary skills to use the several types of raw kitchen equipment, as well as to prepare many, many wonderful dishes.

One of these days I was reading something from Sri Ramakrishna, who says: “Knowledge that purifies the mind and heart is true knowledge, all else is only a negation of knowledge”. And to be true, if I think of what I learned about raw food with Kay, I can only say that yes, raw food is true knowledge in its most practical sense, because it purifies on all levels. Raw, organic, clean food is an invitation to discover this beauty that lies right in our nature.
Many thanks for everything, Kay. Love!"
