For Dorien, cooking is both an art and a science. He knows exactly how to expose you to new and improved ways to prepare and cook your meals, open up your taste buds to appreciate different flavors & textures by helping you understand the importance of layering, and elevates your thinking of healthy eating by introducing you to innovative ways to get rid of diet hurting cooking styles without sacrificing flavor and culture. He is passionate about what he does and lives the lifestyle of the exact service he provides. Dorien is highly educated and offers a vast array of services, classes and products to help share what he's both learned and developed over the years in his profession. Not only can he service you in the kitchen but he helps you incorporate healthy eating habits, gives you tips for recipes and even makes you excited about everything he features or writes about (just to name a few) in his lifestyle blog and Instagram. He willingly adapts to your kitchen workspace and utensils without making you feel bad and he helps you learn new ways to utilize things that you already have or suggests things that you could use to improve your meal prep and cooking style. He never makes you uncomfortable and is able to maintain professionalism while being 100% personable. He is down to earth, well versed, comitted and punctual. If you are looking for the best, you'll find it in Dorien! & most importantly, his food looks and tastes absolutely amazing and that's exactly the food I like to enjoy.Nov 24, 2016
