About the Author

Stephanie SussanWhile Stephanie has spent the last 15+ years as a professional communications executive, her passion is food. To her, food is love. Food is cultural and food is spiritual. Food can spark intense and rewarding conversations about myriad topics and food can provide a comfortable backdrop when conversations become uncomfortable. Stephanie had a successful stint as a professional chef, where she was able to hone her craft and instill in her clients the importance in healthy, delicious eating. Stephanie believes the quality of the food we place in our bodies directly correlates to how our bodies treat us. She believes in whole, natural, organic, and delicious living, and gets an enormous sense of pride and satisfaction creating healthy versions of traditional holiday foods. Stephanie and her husband, Ilan, are the proud parents of three daughters who love food as much as they do!
