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.
