Growing up on a Minnesota farm gave Pamela Ziemann an up-close view of the United States’ food-production industry. She watched as chemicals, hormones, and genetically modified organisms became nearly ubiquitous in the farming process, as they helped to guarantee bounteous yields, although she was anything but impressed. She decided to pave her own path, circling back to organic, raw, sustainable nutrition.

Today at Elemental Cuisine, Pamela uses her experience as a public speaker to educate people about the food system and help them return to a more natural way of eating. During her online classes, she sheds light on how today's commercial food supply can be detrimental to our health, then discusses how plant-based diets can improve mental clarity and physical well-being. She pairs this discussion with cooking instruction, demonstrating how to make wraps, sauces, and dressings, and maximize food’s nutritional value without filling the saltshaker with crushed multivitamins.

Dish it up! stocks shelves with a smorgasbord of kitchen utensils while filling its culinary classrooms with the aromas of creative and classic meals prepared by students and featured chefs from across the country. A class calendar brimming with weekly courses sends students on step-by-step tours through the creation of gourmet burgers, chocolate truffles, and far-flung fare such as Middle Eastern street food ranging from chicken fatta to baba ghannouj. Classes last up to three hours as featured chefs explain a particular culinary tradition or meal through demonstration, hands-on preparation, or a combination of both. During the Sustainable Sushi class on November 18, chef Hajime Sato of Mashiko Restaurant splits his time at the podium expounding on sustainable fishing and demonstrating techniques for using sushi-making tools to construct, roll, and cut the freshest sushi possible.

For some, the urge to create delicious desserts far exceeds the willingness to eat stale candy and unwrap waxy chocolate. For those brave few, Dawn's Candy and Cake carries more than 8,000 molds and organizes candy- and confection-making classes that help candy connoisseurs craft their own confections. Instructors lead students through the basics of making treats such as hollow bunnies and chocolate piñatas in Chocolate 101, and delve into the worlds of truffles, liquor-filled chocolates, and chocolate-dipped fruit, pretzels, and cookies in other courses. Specialty classes investigate advanced topics such as icing, petit fours, and cake pops. Dawn's also hosts a cake club, during which members meet to enjoy snacks, guest demonstrations, and gossip sessions about why Little Debbie only wears one outfit.

Located about 25 miles northeast of Seattle, the Woodinville Valley features dozens of boutique wineries. One of the oldest, Chateau Ste. Michelle, also hosts a concert series every summer; this year's performers include Ringo Starr and Earth, Wind & Fire. Wine-tasting tours are understandably popular here, but it's also worth looking into the region's microbreweries, which supply many of the craft IPAs that are a hit among Seattleites.Outside the realm of grapevines, there are some lovely parks in the area. Along the banks of Lake Washington, the 316-acre Saint Edward State Park shelters bald eagles and otters. Marymoor Park borders Lake Sammamish and has its own velodrome, an angled racetrack that was built for bicyclists and to prop up coffee tables with missing legs.

As a teenager, Katya Difani wrestled with chronic health issues that left her physical and spiritual wellness out of whack. From her misfortune blossomed something beautiful: an appreciation for the healing effects of nature's bounty. After obtaining a degree in herbal science, Katya opened Herban Wellness, a shop stocked with holistic and natural remedies for common health complaints. From bulk herbs born at local farms, each vetted in person by Katya herself, to house-blended teas that soothe allergies, Herban Wellness’s selection holds its own against prescription meds.

The store also hosts practical classes that teach customers how to implement holistic cures in their own homes. During one session, Katya compiles the ingredients for all-natural lotions, salves, and lip balms that students can make in their own blenders after acing the instructional course.
