Estee was born in Israel, and grew up on the sandy shores of the Mediterranean Sea. Family meals were influenced by flavors of the Middle East, along with her Jewish heritage and the Eastern European traditions of her Romanian mother—an incredible cook and hostess—and Polish father.
Cooking has always been her passion and relaxation, providing a creative outlet—with delicious returns! Whether creating meals for guests from all over the world, teaching culinary classes, or doing cooking segments on TV, she has found ways to spread the love for healthy, original cooking with delicious vegan recipes that anyone can enjoy.
She lives with her husband and three children in Portland, Oregon.
