I do more than cook. We are all multifaceted gems, no?
I am fascinated by and a perpetual student of the mind-body connection to health and wellness. On that journey over the years I’ve been using my musical inclinations to help myself and others explore the practices of meditation and chanting. For a number of years I focused more on the music & meditation with my dear friends Rob Morrison and Mark Heffernan, as the trio called Chandrika. If you are so inclined, come join me on Sept 22, where I will partner with Tara Herrick Brown of Inur Wellness and Janine Murphy of JanineYoga to offer one of our “signature” Nourish events.
Here is our Eventbrite Link to register.
Celebrate the Autumnal Equinox with us! We will focus on letting go the energies of summer that no longer serve us and bring our attenion inward, preparing for fall.

Doors open at 7:00 PM. $20 includes entry and cacao.

Susan Garth owns The Natural Kitchen and began her professional cooking career in Saratoga Springs in 1993. From the start she’s been drawn to working with natural, wholesome foods. She attended the Kushi Institute in Becket MA, in 1995, where she studied the art of macrobiotics–creating balance in the body through connecting with the world around us. She has been teaching cooking classes since 1995 and still has fun with them today. Her most recent projects include: working with the Four Seasons Natural Foods in Saratoga Springs, during their expansion in 2014; operating DISH Bistro in Greenwich, NY from 2010 – 2014; and helping launch the café at Moomah, which opened its doors in TriBeCa, NYC, May of 2008.
Janine Murphy is a yoga instructor and began her practice in a college yoga course in 1996. She loves the full experience of yoga – the physicality of asanas, the relaxation, the breathing of pranayama and the meditative stillness. She first was introduced to cacoa in ceremony a few years ago and was moved by the heart opening experience. She is looking forward to sharing cacoa with others.
