Hello, I’m Stephanie!
I’m here to share the pleasures of cooking, eating and dining with you. The recipes on this blog are created with fresh ingredients & local organic foods for plant-based vegan (and sometimes vegetarian) dishes.
In my own style of creating recipes, pleasure is an essential ingredient. While being healthy and eating well is definitely on the menu, enjoying food and feeling good is what being a sensual foodie is all about.
I live in sunny Los Angeles, California with my three wonderful children Benjamin, Hannah and Sayuri. We love exploring the cultural landscape of our big city, finding restaurants we can all enjoy together, exploring botanical gardens, visiting cafes, and tea houses (for my matcha latte fix).
My most favorite thing to do on a Sunday (besides sleep late) is to wander through our local farmers' market in search of organic produce. All the colors of fruits and veggies gives me inspiration, plus I like to connect with the farmers who grow the produce we eat.
As a home cook and mom, I take a lot of time figuring things out as I make it. I don’t follow recipes, but just love to create them! I attended culinary school for French classic cooking and pastry in my college years, and now I like to transform those gourmet classics into healthier plant-based versions.
Follow me on Instagram @stephaniekordan where I share my recipe ideas and take a peek behind-the-scenes in my Instagram stories.
I’d like to show you an “eat more plants” way of cooking and creating meals so you can enjoy food more without worry about what’s in it. There are no rules here, only fresh inspiration to feel lighter, eat greener, and cook consciously.
