About the instructor
Sidonie Maroon teaches cooking from world cuisines at the Port Townsend Food Coop, and she’s also an arts educator. As a chef she leans into her knowledge of art to create delicious and beautiful meals. Her deeper understanding of healthy eating comes through playing with her food. She loves to grow colorful vegetables in her garden, wander around the produce section like it’s an art gallery, cartoon recipes, draw and paint fruit or create elaborate designs with her food.
This maker’s Arts and Food workshop is a collaboration between the Port Townsend Public Library and the Port Townsend Food Coop designed to support healthy eating through programs for kids and families that explore the intersections between culture, food and art.
