Press Coverage and Opportunites to Work Together.

I sat down for an interview with Wellness Warrior, a non-profit dedicated to “Uniting the fight for our right to health.” …and clean food.  Wellness Warrior was founded in 2010 by Deborah Szekely, named “Godmother of Wellness” by Huffington Post.  Read the February 3, 2015 interview below.

Patricia K. Rose Wants to Change the Way We Eat…Fast.  Plus a great recipe.

“Patricia pulls from the global traditions of the “grandmas of old” and believes that we should cook with what is at our feet.”

“Taste is most important. I don’t want to make food that might be healthy but tastes like cardboard.”

“I believe you learn and get motivated by doing, so I get everyone involved. You can see pictures on my blog of people holding their dishes that they’ve made in class.  That is the moment for me when I am so proud of these students.  When they do it themselves, that’s when they get it…that’s when I know there is a chance for them to go home and make more.”

Patricia Rose travels the world through her Westchester cooking classes.

“For Westchester cooking instructor and culinary blogger Patricia Rose, food is a passport to travel the world.”

“You learn so much about history and why we eat the things we eat,” Rose said of studying food. “I try to incorporate a little of that history into the class.”

“Rose, who is determined “to teach people that cooking is easy and fun,” said students who are newcomers to the kitchen should not be intimidated.”

“Sometimes we have mistakes,” she said. “Sometimes that’s the best learning experience when you rescue the mistake.”
