Meet Our Presenters:
Gerry Kasten of Vancouver Coastal Health has worked with food all of his life. He was born into a farming family and still helps his brother bring in the harvest each year. He has received an Honours Diploma in Commercial Cooking, and Bachelors & Masters degrees in Nutrition. He has worked in Public Health in British Columbia for the past twenty-six (26) years. He is now an “Adjunct Professor” in UBC’s Dietetics Program.
His heart’s desire is to live in a world where people celebrate food, sharing it with those they love, taking its pleasure without restraint because its flavour saturates their most sensuous palates.
