This has been a busy summer for me filled with some amazing travel, fun work opportunities, and prepping for the incoming addition of #babyradish. I also had the incredible opportunity to attend the cooking school at the Golden Door Spa and Resort outside Escondido, California in early August for some personal development paired with some R and R. The few days that I spent at the Golden Door allowed me some major relaxation partnered with my favorite past time - cooking!
The Golden Door experience is completely tailored to each guest's needs, from dietary requests, spa treatments, and workouts - everyone's visit is 100% unique. The primary purpose of my stay was to improve upon my culinary skills and to learn new techniques around building flavor and texture using vegetable-forward ingredients without sacrificing the nutritional quality of the food.

Our transcendent tour guides, Emily and Jack, were present throughout our brief little trip, and we are forever grateful to them for guiding us in the most perfect directions. We spent a little under three days on the Island but, as always, it was well fueled by fantastic and memorable eats. Here are my Radish Recs: NantucketRead More
