While I was in Santa Teresa for a fitness retreat, a few of us girls were able to attend Joannes raw cooking class. What an exceptional experience! Everything that Joanne made was so delicious! We left with so much information and I have already made the yummy recipes that were promptly emailed to me!

The cooking class was what actually brought our family to beautiful Santa Teresa in the first place, having read about it in Vogue. April conducted our fun-filled class which was a wonderful introduction to fresh, healthy, home-made food and has already inspired us to try our new "tricks" at home. Wish we could take classes all the time but unfortunately... More

Joanne is passionate about really, really, really good food. There were two college students helping with the classes, doing internships for the summer, and they were equally passionate. I did two classes: (1) Gluten-free/Dairy-free, and (2) LFME and left both days feeling inspired and ready to head home to try out my new tricks. Two weeks later, my kids love... More

I was completely blown away by Joanne's class. Not only is Joanne informative, but she's a lot of fun so the class was completely engaging. The food was fantastic - its completely changed my viewpoint on food and nutrition. Thank you, Joanne! Truly one of the best parts of my trip to Costa Rica.

”Being on a retreat with Joanne is a treat for your whole being. She has a unique gift in her seemingly intuitive comprehension of how to combine ingredients to make food tasty, nutritious and beautiful. Not one single time during the three-day juice cleanse did I feel hunger and transitioning back to eating was smooth thanks to Joanne’s care. I... More
