Mission statement: Empower individuals to create a delicious, healthy lifestyle for themselves, their families and their friends.

Top chef turned cooking coach German Lam motivates people to live better by changing the way they cook and eat. He is a hockey dad who knows what busy is. He believes that food is the fuel that keeps families moving. When they eat well, they can achieve more.
German promotes “free style cooking,” which allows for improvisation and healthy meals even when there is little time to get dinner on the table. He shows people how to combine the luxury of the Ritz with the convenience of McDonald’s.

We can teach the ways of living a healthy lifestyle with freestyle cooking at home.

Free style cooking allows you to create healthy, tasty meals for a busy family without being tied to processed foods or recipes.

With this innovative approach you can:

  • Eat healthy and save money
  • Make delicious meals no matter how much time you have
  • Gain confidence in the kitchen that carries over to the rest of your life
