Kind Words From Previous Partners
"Working with two professionals who make nutrition fun and yummy is such a treat. They both have made our culinary trainings for school nutrition staff throughout ESC Region 12 not only informative but entertaining and inspiring. We can’t wait to have them back for another event very soon!"
"Chef Vahista is my favorite Blue Zones Project® Volunteer Chef! She’s the most qualified, knowledgeable, and reliable chef I know, which is why she’s the first one I call when I’m trying to fill a Cooking Demonstration. Chef V always brings her “A” game with great energy and a very relatable presentation style. She’s very easy to work with and the audience always loves her! I’ve seen Chef V do dozens of cooking demos and I learn something new every time."
"Vahista Ussery, I am convinced, knows everything there is to know about food and nutrition. Even more important, though, she is able to convey her message in such a non-threatening way that anyone she advises will be inspired to make changes in his or her life. She regularly speaks to my college students, and they repeatedly mention her vast knowledge, her impressive career trajectory, and her ability to help them make simple, powerful changes in their eating habits and lives."
To Taste recently provide nutritional services to our YES Dallas participants. The scope of work for this project involved live virtual nutrition education and cooking demonstration classes. The To Taste team always presented the topics in a fun, inviting and clear way. The participants enjoyed learning about healthy nutrition and the preparation of healthy food. The classes were age appropriate and demonstrated an array of skills appropriate for youth, such as knife handling and safety, cooking of basic food staples, food safety etc. To Taste has also been great to work with, and exceptionally accommodating when dealing with unforeseen conditions and potential change. I would recommend and hope to work with them in the future.
"Saint Louise House had so many enthusiastic Junior Chefs in the kitchen and seeing their mothers help them was just perfect! Chef Lindsey and Chef Lexi did a phenomenal job, so professional with the two cameras that were spotlighted during the Zoom activity so that everyone could clearly see what she was doing. Chef Lindsey was super patient with our children who were able to ask ALL of the questions."
"In leading an on-line cooking class for Head Start parents, Lexi and Vahista showed that preparing healthy food is easy and fun. Their recipes are simple to prepare so that anyone, even a novice like me, can make a healthy meal. They really know their stuff; they are impressive in their knowledge and know how to how to make the act of preparing food accessible for everyone."
"Chef V and the folks with To Taste are outstanding individuals! They are engaging and truly passionate about cooking, healthy cooking and making sure we are taking care of ourselves. We've all heard of and probably bought minced garlic, Chef V taught me the basic knife skill of mincing my own garlic with a knife that was intimidating at first."
