My Name is Lisa Mase (pronounced ‘Leeza Mahzay’). I am a whole foods cooking educator, food writer, translator, and herbalist living between Italy, Vermont, and New Mexico.
I grew up in Italy, cradled by the Adriatic Sea and the Dolomites that define the border between Italy and Austria. I believe that healing comes from eating local foods, as close to the source as possible, that are attuned to the foods of our ancestors.
I specialize in foods that are free of gluten, dairy and sugar and taste terrific! I often work with those who need support in healing from chronic conditions such as parasites, Crohn's Disease, Celiac Disease, Colitis, IBS, and auto-immune disorders.
In my teaching and consultation, I draw from the wisdom traditions of European Herbalism, Ayurveda, Macrobiotics, and Chinese Five Element theory to offer a comprehensive, universal view of food as medicine. I keep abreast of nutrition and diet trends so as best to advise clients.
