Get to know me better
A culinary enthusiast with a passion for nutritious yet delicious food that is unique and TASTES GREAT!
MAKE HEALTHY TASTE GREAT- MEAL PLANNING & RECIPES·is my brand and I'm about to launch an online cooking class platform in addition to several e-books with collections of some of my very popular recipes. I am also a former manager for Thermomix in Vancouver and have gleaned much knowledge in the past two years and increased my skills in ethnic cuisines and gluten free and Vegan baking and menus that help heal the body.,
As a chef and wellness advocate for over 25 years I have found simple affordable solutions to keep us healthy, lose unwanted pounds and yet make the experience pleasant without feeling deprivaed when it comes to flavor or satiety. I make it easy to create nutritious meals that are specifically designed to reduce sugar consumption, lower your carb count and reduce food sensitivity and inflammation. As I am a passionate foodie I know how often people say they don’t want to sacrifice flavor and want to enjoy eating healthier diets but admit " if it is not enjoyable they do not find it to be sustainable. It is so much fun to create menus that tantalizing the taste-buds on every level!
I am also working with a team of Social Entrepreneurs with Evolv Health a Social Business that has been making a huge impact on the health of tens of thousands of people and in the past 3 years our Social Enterprise “Buy 1 Nourish 2 “ has triggered whole food donations of over 21 million servings to children suffering from malnutrition around the globe. Currently we are working to bring opportunities through various partner organization to children right here in North America.
For me, cooking is...

A classically trained chef sister and a grandmother who cooked over 60 years and loved food!! Also from working in the catering and culinary industry.
A role model in the kitchen is...

Chef Marcy's reviews
This experience was so awesome - we highly recommend it!
First, as soon as I entered the form online, I had four excellent chefs bid on my evening. It was so hard to decide by we went with Marcy because of her creative menu and style of experience.
Marcy was such a pleasure! She had a creative menu that fit our dietary needs, came prepared and on time, She showed us some great new tricks in the kitchen, let us help a little but also let us enjoy our private time. It was a perfect mix. And then the food - so so so delicious. Everything was irresistible. Great flavours and new combinations that we will definitely try to recreate. Amazing ingredients that were super fresh and in season. Marcy made her signature tiramisu - a must have. So delicious and beautifully presented. By the time she had cleaned up, we were so full.
It was my husbands birthday and he loved it. Would defiantly book again with Take a Chef and with Marcy!
