Award winning Chef to visit Heritage Pointe Residents


Chef Elizabeth Falkner is a multiple award winning chef, author, and artist coming to Heritage Pointe senior living community on December 21, 2021. As part of a yearlong partnership with Morrison Living’s ChefNet program, she will give cooking demonstrations to Residents and visit the facility. Chef Falkner is passionate about meeting people of all ages and encouraging them to cook more healthy. She opened her first restaurant and patisserie “Citizen Cake” in San Francisco, and followed that restaurant with “Orson,” a James Beard Award nominee. Her first cookbook, “Demolition Desserts” was a finalist for IACP’s Julia Child Best First Cookbook award in 2008. “Cooking Off the Clock,” her second book, was released August 2012, both Ten Speed Press. Cooking competitions have been a favorite “sport” for Chef Falkner, she has appeared on most television cooking competitions and other shows on Food Network, Cooking Channel and Bravo. She is an advocate for people and chefs to think more like athletes and “stay fit to cook.” A graduate of the San Francisco Art Institute with a BFA in film, Falkner has produced two short films with food themes in 2018: “Food Games-Sustainability” and a documented performance piece called “Croquembouche Samurai” performed at SoHo House in NYC.

Chef Falkner will also meet Heritage Pointe supporters and donors at the “Diamond Donor” event later that evening. Heritage Pointe is grateful to the Isidore C. and Penny W. Myers Foundation  who partially funded this opportunity for Residents and stakeholders to meet and learn about healthy and kosher cooking from a pro!
