Welcome to Stephanie’s world of Sensory Nutrition–please come in and join her and the rest of the staff here.
Stephanie grew up in an Italian family and Italians are passionate about life! Every aspect of life is important to them: living, loving, spirituality, family, food, and all things cultural.
Although Stephanie may not be teaching in a college test kitchen or in an adult education commercial kitchen at the moment, that doesn’t mean you can’t join her in her own kitchen which will inspire some real-life cooking demos and practical blogs.
The doors here at Sensory Nutrition are usually open 24/7 (thanks to our talented webmaster), so come in and visit with us when YOUR schedule allows.
Stephanie would love to share some of her secrets and passion for preparing nutritious and delicious meals for small or large families and friends that work in this fast-paced, 21st-century lifestyle. From time to time she may also encourage some of her professional colleagues to stop by and through one or more Guest Blog(s) share their expertise with you, too!
Make time to enjoy life and enjoy real food to “Fuel your lifestyle ~ Delight your senses” …Come join us and find your own recipe for living a passionate life!
