Rachel Portnoy will lead a workshop on demystifying plant-based ingredients and recipes, resulting in incredible flavor combinations to taste and explore. The group will explore vegan, vegetarian and veggie-forward appetizers, main dishes and desserts to satisfy many tastebuds

Rachel Portnoy started out as a vegetarian cook as a graduate student in the 1990’s, and then moved on to specialize in pastry at Le Cordon Bleu in London. She worked at French fine dining and Michelin-starred restaurants in New York, Washington D.C. and London, as well as at fine restaurants and bakeries in France.

In 2002, Rachel and her husband, French chef Franck Tessier, opened Cakewalk Bakery and Chez Nous Restaurant in Lee. Rachel now works as a Culinary and Baking instructor/Demonstration Chef at Canyon Ranch.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
