Rebecca Katz invented the term “Culinary Translator” to describe what she does, which is essentially translating nutritional science to the plate, seasoned by wisdom and the alchemy of flavor.

Rebecca got to this magical place in her life after a stressed-out career in the business world led her to seek a more nourishing life. She found the answer in a signora’s kitchen in Florence, and went on to formal culinary training at the Natural Gourmet Institute. Fast forward to becoming Executive Chef for the Food As Medicine professional nutrition training program, obtaining a Masters of Science degree in Health and Nutrition Education from Hawthorn University, and publishing her first science-based cookbook. A Culinary Translator was born!

Now she gets to play nutrition detective and healthy cook to her own heart’s delight, within her artist’s eye (also a painter), flavor-loving taste buds and writer’s mind. Rebecca has also recently formed a new company called Healing Kitchens LLC with some great partners to allow her to bring their message of Yum to even more people. And last but not least is she plays another very special role, the one where she gets to give back: founder and director of the Healing Kitchens Institute (HKI) at Commonweal in Bolinas, CA. HKI is an evolving platform dedicated to educating individuals and communities about the power of food as medicine and nourishment.
