Chef Penni Royston credits nature’s bounty, specifically colorful fruits and veggies, as the inspiration for Nature’s Table Cooking School. A certified Natural Foods Chef, Penni ousts processed junk from recipes and instead uses healthy foods preferred by any serious crafter of edible art. During her classes, chef Penni rounds up a rainbow of ingredients to craft raw dishes, gluten-free fare, or vegan soup and pizza made from scratch. She shifts between demonstration and student participation as she teaches, sending each pupil home with a recipe and a packet of nutritional info so they can calculate how many graves they’ll have to dig in the backyard to burn off the calories.
The shutterbugs at Janssen Photography divide their time between two scenic locales where they capture subjects around charming outdoor grounds or inside one of two contemporary studios. At the Lakewood site, a historical Victorian home nestles amid 2 acres of scenery that include a pond, waterfall, gazebo, and a 1940s vintage pickup truck. The Littleton studio rests on 2.5 acres of coalmining land, where a rustic cellar and a stone waterfall create evocative photo backgrounds. Once photographers have snapped sophisticated family photos, whimsical child portraits, and memorable senior photos, they retouch these images and immortalize them in print form. When they aren't snapping shots on their home turf, Janssen's photographers go on location to chronicle weddings, shoot publicity photos, and document fake lunar landings.
Over the past 20 years, Denver Equestrians owner Corinne M. Lettau has been mastering proper horse training and horse communication while studying under elite professionals such as 1994 Olympic bronze medalist Michelle Gibson. At her 32,000-square-foot equestrian complex, Corinne and a team of talented instructors share their bond with horses by leading students through riding lessons, horsemanship classes, and rider assessments. On large indoor and outdoor arenas, students cover the basics of oat-powered transportation, such as mounting, dismounting, and transitioning from walk to halt. In group classes, students glean horseback know-how alongside up to five other riders. During private lessons, students build upon individual strengths and weaknesses and discuss the advancement of elective hoof surgery for humans.
