Silver Hills culinary artist Eileen Brewer's journey into vegan cooking began when she learned that her child Debbie was allergic to dairy products. Overnight Eileen was challenged with changing the family's menu. Her goal was to create recipes so delicious that the family wouldn't miss dairy products. Ever since the 1980's Eileen has been expanding and perfecting vegetarian recipes and menus for Silver Hills Health Center and Spa. She has taught numerous vegetarian cooking schools as well as produced three Silver Hills cookbooks.
When Silver Hills chef Cecile Gordon goes to bed at night, her choice for bedtime reading is cookbooks. She laughs when she confesses to her passion -- she loves cooking and loves exploring recipes. And to that end, she has a substantial library of cookbooks and files of recipes. Ever since she was a teen, Cecile knew she wanted to work with food. The first cooking class she took was a vegetarian class and her interest grew from there.
