About chef Edie

chef Edie Dourleijn - owner creative cook co


A former picky eater who studied sociology, chef Edie Dourleijn now is a cooking coach who hasn’t forgotten what home cooks experience in the kitchen.

From the absolute beginner who never heard of zesting an orange to someone who is a confident sous-vide cook, Edie found her way in the kitchen like many home cooks.

Then she went beyond.

Culinary school and moving to California made her change careers from science to coaching everyone who wants to have a great time being in a kitchen.

And yes, Edie adores alliterations.
