“Leslie is A Powerful Food Healer. I love feeling the integrity of her spirit and the connections to where our food comes from!”

– Gabrielli Chiara, Amherst, MA, Client, Booked a Private 2 hour, Hands on Cooking Lesson in her home with Leslie

“Leslie brings a lifetime of wisdom, contemplative insight, and a spirit of improvisational fun to her teaching, which unfolds softly as an edible nasturtium blossom. A week later, after the private lesson, I find myself incorporating so much of her approach: she teaches directly and by example. A teacher nourishing in all senses, while my family appreciates the new tastes and approaches.”
-EM, professor/traveler

“Leslie Cerier is the consummate master of conscious cookery, a veritable culinary goddess.”

-Chris Kilham, The Medicine Hunter

The private cooking lesson for me and my friends was truly a joy and delight!! We felt intoxicated!!! It was dream I never even imagined would happen in my life years ago and I feel so blessed to have received it. Leslie Cerier’s way of teaching created a sensual and nourishing experience, the way I want to live. Thank you for being so open and sense-ful!

-Yael Rosenbloom, Amherst, MA

“Leslie is a hot ticket. She’s inspired, inspiring, super talented, fearless, fun(!) and knows her stuff. She’s also dedicated lifestyler who walks the talk – and that means something to me. I love hanging out and working with Leslie, hearing about all the great things happening in her career – one big gig after another, one booked-out-with-waiting-list special event at one super eco chic venue after another. Talk about someone deserving. Mostly I love Leslie’s zest for life(!) As an environmentalist, I appreciate she’s out there sharing such great pleasure-is-healthy and food-is-medicine life philosophies with the world. Leslie is PART OF THE SOLUTION.”

-Zoe Helene, Founder, Cosmic Sister

Leslie you are the coolest!! We had a great time and so did all our friends. Everybody I spoke with said they’d be interested in doing something again in a couple months.

– Anthony Schiappa, Longmeadow, MA; booked a private 3 hour hands on vegetarian cooking class for him and 6 of his friends.

“Leslie is the real deal. She understands food and wellness with a rare depth, and she shares her wisdom with playfulness and grace. Everything she does–from cooking to teaching–is delicious!”

-Robyn Lawrence, Former Editor-in-Chief, Organic Spa Magazine

“My husband and I are on a journey to discover just what it is to cook and eat as healthy as possible. We were both looking for something to get us out of the same repetitive go-to recipes that we cycled through week in and week out. That is where Leslie’s cooking/consultation came into play. She and I worked to create a menu that was brand new to my husband and myself, as well as loaded with nutrition. The experience was amazing! We cooked in her lovely kitchen and taste tested so many ingredients as we cooked, and she explained their benefits and as well as where we could find them. We are so glad we did it and have made the recipe on our own already!”

– Serena Hooper, Amherst, MA

“First, let me take a moment to thank you for teaching your classes at the Natural Gourmet. They were well received. I really enjoyed sitting in and listening to you. You have a nice and easy way about you and are generous with your information.“

-Judith Friedman, Director of the Natural Gourmet Institute for Food and Health

“Leslie Cerier works her culinary magic, sharing her creative genius for enchanting, earth-friendly recipes.“

-Kathie Madonna Swift MS RD LDN

Leslie has inspired me to think of food and eating in new ways. As a chemist, I appreciate the analytical aspect of her food philosophy. She gets that food is made up of natural products some of which are healthy and others not so. She gets that our health depends on balances of nutrients, and that our needs vary with the season and with our seasons. She is at the same time intuitive, artistic, and creative in the dishes she creates. She insists that food should be good tasting (It’s all about the YUM) and good looking (meals should include foods from all colors of the rainbow). Thank you Leslie for everything you do!

-Dr Patricia O’ Hara, Dean and Chemistry professor,  Amherst College

I love Leslie’s way with food! It is not just that she creates delicious recipes, it is that she is, in her essence, delicious! When I am in need of some kitchen inspiration I often flip through her cookbooks or search her website for ideas. In my work as an acupuncturist, nourishment counselor, and personal chef I constantly refer my clients to Leslie’s website and cookbooks for inspiration. My all time favorite Leslie recipe is Curried Lentil Soup with Coconut Milk. I have made this for literally hundreds of clients and it has always gotten rave reviews.

-Ilana Margalit, Acupuncturist, Nourishment Counselor and Personal Chef
