Carrie Fehr begins her thirteenth year as a chef teacher for the cooking & gardening program at the Berkeley Unified School District, where she is a member of the Superintendents’ Advisory Committee on Cooking and Gardening. She has developed proven cooking lessons that skillfully integrate core academic subjects, culinary concepts, and nutrition education.
Carrie brings a wealth of experience to her cooking teacher role that spans the globe– ranging from restaurateur in the French Alps to Berkeley. She has worked in a variety of settings, including an opportunity that led her to teach incarcerated women seasonal cooking classes and healthy lifestyles.
When not writing on her food blog or teaching, Carrie practices Bikram yoga, and devotes many hours to cycling. She has trained, fundraised, and participated in the Aids Lifecycle, a 550-mile, 7-day ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles, to raise awareness for the fight against Aids. Active with the American Cancer Society, Carrie was invited to speak at The Young Cancer Survivor Scholarship Program, about her experience when her then–teenage son was diagnosed with cancer and the lessons of courage learned from it, as well as advocating for scholarship opportunities in higher education for young cancer survivors.
The cooking classroom is a perfect match for Carrie’s love and passion for teaching. Carrie’s goal is to inspire a positive emotional connection to whole seasonal foods that will instill in her students a life long appreciation for a healthy lifestyle.
