Chef 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 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!

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.
