Join Chef Lando as she prepares anti-inflammatory and gut-healthy dishes with respect to traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic principles at the state-of-the-art Studio Kitchen by Specialty Produce.

Chef Lando’s story begins in a refugee camp in Thailand, where she was born to parents fleeing the communist takeover of Vietnam. Growing and cooking food was not a luxury in her early life, but a precious necessity; she literally doesn’t remember learning to use a knife–it was as much a part of her developmental experience as learning to walk or speak. It’s difficult to overstate the fundamental role that food, its production, and its preparation played in her life, just as it’s difficult to overstate the visceral connection that she developed with cooking as a result. The potential of food and culinary tradition to sustain, connect, and lift up families and communities is a chief contributing factor in her view of cooking and eating.

Chef Lando’s restaurant is located in the headquarters of JuneShine in Scripps Ranch and she also offers a meal delivery service for various health conditions.

She will be joined by Ivo Fedak of Mindful Mushrooms who specializes in hard-to-grow exotic varieties and incorporate some of his offerings in her dishes.

The Berry Good Food Academy, the culinary education arm of Berry Good Food, hosts hands-on cooking classes every third Sunday of the month from February through October at the state-of-the-art Studio Kitchen by Specialty Produce in San Diego.

Taught by a variety of community chefs and food artisans, the experience brings us close to the source for local and sustainable products, strengthens the community through shared experiences, and encourages us to look for relationships instead of labels.
