Chef Jonathan Forgash lectures on "food with emotional content", mediating trauma associated with cancer diagnosis and treatment, as well as issues that arise for patient and caregiver during the cancer journey.

Jonathan is available for lectures, workshops, retreats and cooking demonstrations in NYC and across the country.

Back to basics - “It’s not why you have it. It’s what you do about it.”

1.5-hour.

Every event begins with a delicious, aromatic cooking demonstration and tasting.

This lecture is for new patients and caregivers.

The time between diagnosis and treatment can be overwhelming and life altering.

Where do I start? How do I prepare? What do I do next? How do we work together?

Jonathan believes that now is the time to take charge. Individuals learn about food with emotional content, how to understand one another better, and promote wellness for all in the kitchen. Servana offers Knowledge, Confidence and Inspiration for the mind, body and kitchen.

With your experience at the Back to Basics lecture, it is my hope that you will share your own knowledge, confidence and inspiration to others in your community.
