Crystal Bonnet is an International Raw Food Chef and Instructor teaching others to create healthy dishes that not only taste great but look beautiful.
“With knowledge, anything is possible!”
No truer words were ever spoken, and these five words inspire and guide me to create. I am now a raw food chef, instructor, and cookbook author, but it was not always this way. Believe me when I say that it was a challenging, incredible, and beautiful journey that brought me to a place where I am now teaching others through the Crystal Dawn Culinary custom courses.
When I was younger and embarking on the journey to discover my true spirit, a career path in raw food nutrition was not in the cards. Ultimately, it was the deterioration of my physical self that forced my mind to make some hard decisions. Even today, when I look back, I am saddened that our society places a low priority on health and mental welfare, and pledge to myself to never fall back on old habits.
As a graduate of established plant-based and raw food nutrition programs, I have worked hard to learn the importance of the culinary aspect and nutritional elements of living foods. It is this information I share with my students so that they will have as much knowledge as necessary to understand raw foods and their health benefits.
My work within the plant-based culinary industry led me on many adventures, including the development of unique plant-based menus for new restaurants and teaching Raw Chef Courses around the world. It was also thrilling to travel to design and cater multiple health retreats in Canada and Europe.
Although it took a strong push from those I love, my raw chocolate and dessert business’s launch brought such satisfaction and sense of accomplishment; I felt liberated knowing I would always be my own boss.
Learning should be an exciting and a never-ending pursuit. Through my easy-to-follow and comprehensive classes, let me share the knowledge and skills needed to incorporate healthy food alternatives into your lifestyle. You and your family will thrive, and this will be the greatest reward an educator can imagine.
Join me in creating sweet and savory dishes that are raw, free from: gluten, refined sugar, and soy. Not only will you feel better, but your family and friends will love indulging in your creations!
