About the Cook
My name is Stacey Isaacs. I have had many careers. I’ve been a chef, a lawyer, and a writer/editor. And more recently, I received a Masters Degree in Oriental Medicine and a License in Acupuncture, so my latest passion is healing through acupuncture and Chinese herbs. Some people find this diversity interesting. Others just think I have the attention-span of a gnat.
I’ve found my passion and that is: Wellness. I love to cook delicious, chef-quality food that’s good for you and easy to prepare. I combine my passion for cooking with my knowledge for whole-body-wellness by using foods, exercise, meditation, qi gong, herbs and acupuncture to heal the body, mind and spirit. I’m happy to share anything I know and all that I am still learning with anyone who is interested.
Food is fun. Cooking has always de-stressed me. During my lawyer days, I would go into the kitchen in the middle of the night while I was practicing a summation and I would just cook. (I couldn’t eat because the nausea during a trial was ever-present.) After practicing law for about 15 years, I went to cooking school. This is where I learned that food is fun. It’s not rocket-science. Unlike my career in criminal law, no one’s life is on the line with food. I laugh at my mistakes and I relish in the happiness the good dishes give my friends and family.
Now, I take the great tasting foods I’ve learned to make, add in some healing herbs, create good energy, and it’s a great experience for mind and body. It’s fun. It tastes good. It’s satisfying. It’s healing.
