View Full Version : Alissa's Live Food Chef Training

Has anyone taken Alissa's Living on Live Food Chef and/or Instructor training. How did you like it? What kind of things did you do. Would it be worth it to take if you have to travel quite a distance?
The reason I'm asking is because I am interested in taking it, but there are no instructors near me. I thought for sure there would be some in the Twin Cities, Mpls/St. Paul, but there wasn't (well there was one, but she didn't have any classes scheduled). The closest after that was Chicago. About 6/7 hour drive for me. Would it be worth it to have to travel that far? IS IT THAT GOOD?! :)
Thanks for your thoughts!

I found it to be a WOW.......SHOT IN THE ARM. You are SO HUNGRY for Knowledge and like people. You do learn a lot, you make food and eat it, you meet other critters JUST like you and it is a RAWonderful Day and it can LAST FOREVER......
.Would I drive 7 hours.........NO..but that's me. People travel to Maine to take Alissa's Class, pay for plane fare plus the Class which I think accomaditions are included. Not that amounts to Thousands of Dollars because you take all the Classes together.
Have you purchased Alissa's Living on Live Food Book and DVD?
I would start a "Thread" asking if there are any Chef-Teachers in your Area. I have found that some are still teaching but are not listed when you check your city. I was looking for My instructor and did not find her name. I finally got an email from her and she is still holding classes.
Hope this has been of some Help to you. If not I just gave you a "BUMP"

Thank you for the reply. I do REALLY want to take the class. Maybe I'll email the lady who's listed in the cities and see if she could maybe set something up in the future or if she knows anything.

Just to clear it up. When you take the certifications with Alissa, you pay for the class, how to get there, AND your accomodations. Accomodations are NOT included. But I wouldn't have traded that experience for the world!:)

Is Alissa still teaching in Maine?
Whether you should take the class or not depends on your intentions. What happens there will not happen at any other class you can possibly take. It is, for many, a life-changing experience.
If I were you, I'd call them and speak with Elaine and she'll tell you more about whether it's worth it for you to go there or not.

I wholeheartedly agree that what happens in Alissa's class is unlike anything else you will experience, and it's different (and dare I say MORE) than you will ever expect. Personally, the cost and time to travel to Maine for this class is nothing compared to what you get in return. But, in the end you have to figure out what's right for you and follow your heart. Best of luck.
