Linda with artichokes

On August 27, 2015, Linda Heilpern passed away. During the 10 years of running her business, Cooking Light with Lotsa Flavor, she hosted unique food events, delivered home-cooked meals and provided cooking classes. Her dedication to the art of preparing delicious, satisfying food was greatly enhanced by her warm, playful and generous nature. She truly delighted in sharing her passion for cooking with others, and in doing so she touched the lives of hundreds of people.

"If you really want to make a friend, go to someone's house and eat with him... The people who give you their food give you their heart."

Cesar Chavez
