2020 Speaking Engagement Dates

Upcoming Speaking Engagement Dates:

Currently All Classes are Hosted on Zoom Unless Otherwise Noted. You will need to sign up with the hosting organization to join the class. I can’t wait to see you!

This class is a fun, energetic, and interactive discussion about food and flavor. We will discuss how your taste and flavor perception can change during and after cancer treatment. In this class, Chef Ryan Callahan will teach the fundamentals of flavor, origin, and function, as well as how to combat the most common eating-related side-effects. A tasting demonstration will teach you the five basic flavors of salty, savory, spicy, sour, and sweet.

Class requires the following ingredients to be tasted to have the full experience of the class:

1 teaspoon of the following ingredients:

  • Salt (coarse ground or table salt)
  • Soy Sauce (an authentic, brewed soy sauce preferably Kikkoman)
  • Ground Black Pepper (coarse ground or table grind)
  • Red Wine Vinegar or Lemon Juice
  • Sugar (regular white sugar if not available honey is an acceptable substitute)


You can put these ingredients into portion cups, disposable cups, regular cups, or any container that can be easily accessed during the class.

We also request that you grab two to three herbs or spices from your kitchen to smell during the class, and be prepared to discuss them in class.
