THE T.I.K. STORY
The Intuitive Kitchen (T.I.K.) was born in 2008 from a perceived need for Eating Education for kids and adults. We seek to inspire "culinary creativity and comfort for the community."
T.I.K.™ presents a novice-friendly, realistic approach to "natural foods", meaning a wholesome, balanced way of eating.
We don't advocate any ONE way of eating. We thoughtfully address food from shopping to preparation and presentation, health and lifestyle and the environment in which our food is prepared, like your kitchen!
OUR [life-saving] MISSION
T.I.K.™ wants to help improve the odds for the survival of Humanity and improve it's Quality of Life. That's all. (Well, and to feel good and have fun in the process, helping others to remember the love and art of Eating Well.)
T.I.K.™ is about "conscious consumption", incorporating lifestyle and nutritional concerns. We foster personal and global responsibility. We encourage empowered improvisation with a healthy, affordable and versatile pantry.
T.I.K.™ is a restorative kitchen.
We treat feeding ourselves and our families as a joyful event and as participation in the larger community.
Marissa Joinson, Owner/Chef/Educator
SO, I've been in the food industry in "various capacities", mostly cooking, for almost 30 years. (so crazy!)
After all this time and experience I believe in balance in every way and my "relaxed-but-conscious" cooking style reflects that: mostly healthy, fun and varied.
I bring restaurant ownership, kitchen management, entertainment, event coordination and professional organizing to the table, so to speak.
You see, I don't want to just "give folks a fish", y'know? (as much as i love sushi ;)
I try to live and consume with joy and consciousness and I strive to inspire that in others, helping people to be healthy and happy, as well as both globally- and self-sustainable...
Thanks for reading and I look forward to cooking with you!
