Meet The Chef!
What was your latest a-ha moment? For Italian Chef Roberto Carboni, it was x years ago when he began suffering from sleep apnea and facing other health challenges, such as acid-reflux and a handful of other pre-diabetic condition symptoms. We all rely on modern medicine and professional advice but sometimesthe best doctor is your own gut instinct. Chef Carboni alleviated his symptoms with natural diet changes, and the support of like-minded individuals he met during his certification for Plant-Based Nutrition from Cornell University.
His own personal experience is what drives him to affect change in the lives of his family members and those in the larger community. He promoteshealthy cooking practices and eating habitswhile simultaneously striving to leave the lightest carbon footprint possible on our precious earth.
Like most people, it takes a significant life-threatening moment to motivate us to make honest, healthy changes not only for ourselves but also our loved ones, and in turn, society as a whole. With so many diverse cultures forming a broad spectrum of varying of views, not to mention various clinical research studies, and a field of advocates promoting a variety of lifestyles, we are bombarded by an array of media, information, and differing expert opinions from all over the world in this age of innovation and technology. But what motivates us to truly make a profound change? It’s usually the risk of losing something or someone important to you that motivates us.
Passion (or passione in Italian) is one thing that drives people to change. Chef Carboni’s passion is in his blood, his speech, and fills the entire kitchen from beginning to end of each of his classes. He loves sharing fresh plants and herbs from his garden, and can’t stop talking about their innate nutritional benefits. He instructs without judgement or rhetoric and uses a practical approach to disseminating valuable information. As he often says, “Take it or leave it, no problem!”
Chef Carboni encourages people to educate themselves and use their own common sense to evaluate which path is right for them. If you are able to take anything away from this website or one of his classes, whether it’s a delicious and nutritious recipe or a helpful kitchen tip, that’s all that matters.
There’s always a transitional period to significant life changes; change does not happen overnight. For Chef Carboni, it’s taken x years and has transformed both his personal and professional life due to the nature of being in the culinary industry. Most importantly, his children are at the forefront of his mind with everything he does. His classes are family oriented and his son, Marcelo (10), and daughter, Sofia (8), are often there to lend their father a hand and his wife Minerva at his side helping him with the cooking.
