Meet Crystal Bonnet
‘With knowledge, anything is possible!’ No truer words were ever spoken, and these five words inspire and guide me to create. I am now a raw food chef, instructor, and cookbook author, but it was not always this way. Believe me when I say that it was a challenging, incredible, and beautiful journey that brought me to a place where I am now teaching others through the Crystal Dawn Culinary custom courses!
As a graduate of the plant-based and raw food nutrition programs at Matthew Kenney Culinary Academy and the Pure Joy Academy, I have worked hard to learn the importance of the culinary aspect and nutritional elements of living foods. It is this information I share with my students so that they will have as much knowledge as necessary to understand raw foods and their health benefits.
My work within the plant-based culinary industry led me on many adventures, including the development of unique plant-based menus for new restaurants. It was thrilling to travel to design and cater multiple health retreats in Canada and Europe, and when I launched my raw chocolate and dessert business, it was so liberating! Learning should be an exciting and a never-ending pursuit.
Through my easy-to-follow and comprehensive classes, let me share the knowledge and skills needed to incorporate healthy food alternatives into your lifestyle. You and your family will thrive, and this will be the greatest reward an educator can imagine.

Learning raw cakes from Crystal has changed my life and helped tremendously in my business! I started learning from her for my own personal health choices, but my passion quickly turned into a business and it’s in high demand in my neighborhood. I feel so grateful to learn from the best!

Crystal's teaching methods are clear and concise and she delivers the course in a way that is easy to understand. She was always there and ready to help when I needed her and that made the course even better, to know that any question would be answered straight away. The course included some surprise extra lessons and free videos which enhanced the learning experience even more so it surpassed my expectations and provided great value for money.
Founder, Healing the Body
As a holistic health coach and healer, I’ve always recognized the power of raw food. I had the pleasure of learning from Crystal many different techniques one can use to create nutritionally dense, beautiful, and delicious foods! Over 3 days, I was fortunate enough to experience her exceptional creations. She also made it easy to understand how to balance flavours and ingredients, so I could create my own raw food at home.

As Crystal is really passionate about plant-based food, I felt very motivated by her positive energy. She has lots of knowledge about nutrition and health benefits, which she shares during her classes.
