From Naomi


To all students, corporate teams, & foodies:

“All good things must come to an end”. I wanted you to know that I have closed NuCulinary as a global cooking school as of the end of 2016. We have had a wonderful 17 years of teaching cooking classes, leading corporate teams to delicious results and providing wellness demonstrations amongst our many projects. I especially enjoyed being the emcee of many of the chef competitions around the Northwest, and having a role in our neighborhood Farmers Markets.

I am most grateful for the support of family, friends, mentors and my husband, Wayton. On behalf of myself and my team, I want to thank you for being a part of my amazing experience of “Integrating Cuisine and Life.”

So, what is next for me? I will continue to be active with the local food and nutrition scene through the Seattle Farmers Markets; Les Dames Escoffier Seattle Chapter, Food and Culinary Professionals; Women’s Chefs and Restauranteurs ; International Association of Culinary Professionals and my fellow chefs and food service professionals. I continue to support the Women’s Business Exchange; the Nisei Veterans Committee Foundation and the multitude of organizations which provide education and give back to our communities in support for women, diversity and our global community. Most importantly, I strive to maintain a healthy lifestyle and be present to each moment of life.

My personal mission was built on Illuminating, Illustrating and Integrating the role of food and health in our lives and that has not changed. I hope to see you around the thriving Seattle food scene in the future.

Although the company is closed, please feel free to write to me.
