Lauren has been a part of Team Gnosis for several months and is bringing not only great knowledge, but also a new sense of calm and cool to the kitchen. She is busily at work creating new flavors weekly—so delicious!
How could a person be so lucky to land this Chocolatier posistion? Lauren received her “chocolate training” at a classical chocolate academy in France; this femme really knows chocolate in and out! Since coming to Gnosis, she has enjoyed working with a whole new palate of superfood ingredients. Currently a student at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN), Lauren became interested in a holistic approach to nutrition after realizing that her personal ideals (passions of nutrition and high quality cuisine) weren’t aligning with her professional life.
At the IIN Lauren has been inspired by speeches from David Wolfe, Mark Hyman, and John Douillard. She is studying to become a certified Holistic Health Counselor.
Here are her responses to the need-to-know Mini Questionaire:
1.What is your favorite breakfast?
My favorite breakfast is fresh juice and fresh fruit.
2. How much chocolate do you eat in a day?
I probably eat the equivalent of 2 bars a day.
3. What’s the longest you’ve gone without chocolate since becoming a chocolatier?
I try to go all weekend without eating it so I can eat my fill all week long.
4. Do you feel that chocolate enhances your mood?
Absolutely, who isn't happier when eating chocolate?
5. Who would you invite, dead or alive, to your perfect Chocolate Tasting?
My dad, Julia Child, my college music professor, Will Farell, and my dear friends Emily, Emily, and Lauren
