I am Stefanie Dević
A Health-Supported Chef, Instructor, and Holistic Health Coach. I ate a lot of ultra processed junk food growing up in Scottsdale, AZ and had no realization about where our food came from.My appreciation, fascination, and love for REAL food all started in my Armenian grandmother's kitchen and really inspired me when I lived in California. This is where I learned about (CSA) Community Supported Agriculture, farm-to-table philosophy, and how important the sustainable origins of our food sources are.
Upon completing my university education, my strong passion for food, health, and wellness led me to The Natural Kitchen Cooking School where I was introduced to plant based cooking. I then took the plunge and left my corporate job and completed the Chef's Training Program at The Natural Gourmet for Health and Culinary Arts. Best decision of MY LIFE!
Culinary exploration led me from a community kitchen to high-end banquet, catering, and teaching hands-on cooking and nutrition labs. I absolutely love teaching kids about whole foods! I also received my certification as a Health Coach at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. My passion is to provide nutrient-dense meals and offer holistic health coaching to clients and their families with my company Whole Made Gourmet.
