Infused Holistic Kitchen
For 10 years Kassia was a private chef, combining her knowledge of holistic nutrition and healthy culinary techniques to cook healing meals for people with dietary restrictions, food allergies, or living with an illness.
The last few years, she has moved into curating healing menus for spiritual retreats and private gatherings, and teaching private healthy cooking classes in her client’s homes. Her classes always have an educational component and a focus on cooking food in ways that boosts nutrient value.
Kassia Fiedor, Chef, Infused Holistic Kitchen, and Author of Cocina Holistica
Kassia Fiedor from Infused Holistic Kitchen is a Holistic Nutritionist, Herbalist, & Wellness Chef from California. Passionate about using plants, herbs, & vegetables as medicine, she encourages people to cultivate the connection between food & their health, and feel empowered to make healthy choices. Her food is infused with nutrient-dense, organic ingredients, usually from local farms. Her creations truly serve as medicine for the body & soul.
Kassia lived in Guatemala for 5 years where she shared her healing food through classes and cooking weekly meals for those with an appreciation for nourishing food. Amazed by the abundance of native superfoods, she fostered intimate connections with small organic farmers and artisans producing high-quality products.
In her debut cookbook Cocina Holistica, Kassia infuses ancestral ingredients into healing plant-based dishes. Drawing upon the magnificent beauty of Guatemala, she hopes to inspire renewed respect for indigenous plants in creative, modern recipes. Cocina Holistica is more than a cookbook – it is a memoir that reflects her deep love for nature, travel, and true healing through food. When Kassia travels, her passion is to infuse the plants from those areas into her dishes, creating a sense of place and connection. While this book celebrates ancestral superfoods in Guatemala, her hope is to inspire creative use of indigenous foods wherever you are in the world! Many vegetables will be familiar to you, but you’ll also learn about new nutritious and sustainable foods, most of which can be sourced anywhere or easily substituted. All recipes are gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar free, with a focus on nutrient-density. Find it on Amazon, or directly from Kassia.
