Designation: MEC cooking expert since 2019, Computer engineer, Micro-greens Gardener.


I love learning and sharing traditional cooking techniques and recipes – especially easy healthy one pot dishes, fermentation, yogurt, bone broth, and teas. With my 1/5 acre yard, I’ve created a permaculture food forest. I try to go from seed to table in the best way possible. MEC’s Clay pots are part of my seed to table process – they make my foods tastier and healthier.

In 2018 I purchased my first MEC clay pot, since then I’ve learned a lot about clay cooking from trial and error, talking to Miriam and writing The Complete Guide to Nutritious Clay Pot Cooking. For more info see my website, Yogurt & More: Traditional Wisdom for Modern Living.
