“Holly did a wonderful job leading a fermentation demonstration at the Woodstock Farm Festival. Her thoughtful and clear presentation was tailored to the environment of the market, where it’s often difficult to gain & hold folks’ attention. Everyone enjoyed it and learned a lot. We’re happy that people now have another way to use our farmer’s products. We can’t wait to have Holly back!”
-Megan, Market Manager

“We have had the pleasure of having Holly Shelowitz present cooking demonstrations and nutrition workshops at our library and look forward to having her back. The first program was all about creating fresh, nutritious, low calorie and delicious fruit and vegetable smoothies. I have to admit, we all gasped when a handful of spinach went into the blender! But as always, it was delicious! The second class was on creating scrumptious, healthy desserts. Holly’s demonstrations were very informative and highlighted ease of preparation. The audiences were thrilled with getting to sample everything and really appreciated the “special ingredient”: Holly’s engaging and fun personality. I highly recommend her healthy eating programs.”
-Don Hansen  ESL/Adult Programs Coordinator | Bergenfield Public Library

“Holly’s class was informative, enjoyable and delicious! She created a community collaboration with the Ramsey Farmer’s Market and we used 100% local ingredients from our Farmer’s Market. The audience braved bad weather to be at our program and was rewarded with great tips and a hearty soup!”  – Ellen M. O’Keefe, MLS Teen and Adult Librarian | Ramsey Free Public Library

“Holly was an asset to Panorama, our summer program for children at Olana State Historic Site. Each day we discovered a place that 19th Century Landscape artist Frederic E. Church traveled to. Holly was an integral part of our adventure to Mexico. Her patience with the children was excellent, and included everyone in the cooking experience. We were so very satisfied with the results, as we all enjoyed a delicious meal together! If you are planning a cooking class, Holly will certainly make it a wonderful and educational experience for all involved!”    -Sarah D. Hasbrook | Education Coordinator | The Olana Partnership

“Our cooking classes with Holly at Ellenville Public Library are wonderful! People come away feeling happy, well fed, full of camaraderie and inspired to eat better and learn more. To put it another way, they’re nourished body and soul – to call what Holly offers ‘Nourishing Wisdom’ is a perfect representation of what she does!”
