This month Ilana Kopinsky will be our host. Ilana recently received her PBNM Cooking Coach Certification and is ready to teach you all about her love of healthy plant-based oil free cuisine. She’ll be featuring a Mexican fiesta summer theme that includes Mexican gazpacho, a taco bar and scrumptious Mexican chocolate cake. Please join us as we cook our way into optimal health!

Ilana Kopinsky came to the  United States from South Africa with her husband Mervin, and settled into the suburbs of Chicago to raise her family. With her children now turned adults, she became interested in plant-based nutrition when she realized that eating this way would help her get off of medications and also help her lose weight.

Ilana’s love for cooking lead her to join Lincolnshire Vegan No Oil Cooking Club in 2017.  She was fascinated with the idea of no oil  plant-based recipes and took to it like a duck to water.  When she heard that PBNM would be offering a certification for Cooking Coaches and that she would be able to teach classes herself, she jumped at the opportunity to participate.  On June 8th, she attended the training (along with 19 others) and received her PBNM Cooking Coach certification.

Ilana is up and running, offering cooking classes in her home where she can seat up to 16 people around her beautiful, oversized dining room table.  On July 10th, Ilana will be teaching Mexican cooking.  She will be helping her students make gazpacho, plant-based tacos and a luscious Mexican chocolate cake for dessert. Look for all of her classes at www.PBNM.org  under “Cooking Classes” where you can register and pay online to attend.
