short bios for Susanne Jensen and Barbara Johnston-Brown, the teachers:
Susanne Jensen, a native of Denmark, has been teaching macrobiotic cooking in Australia, Europe and the United States for 25 years. She is a graduate of the Kushi Institute in Boston where she taught for years. Susanne was instrumental in the founding of Marty's Natural Foods restaurant in San Francisco as head chef. She has been a cooking instructor for College of Marin, the Macrobiotic Learning Center in Oakland and Lawrence Livermore Laboratory. Since 1999 she has been teaching cooking at Willard Middle School in Berkeley, Ca. For the past 9 summers Susanne has been head chef at French Meadows Macrobiotic Summer camp. Susanne is the mother of a beautiful daughter Sophia.
Barbara Johnston-Brown, a California Native, began her love of cooking at an early age with both grandmothers who always cooked from scratch and with local, fresh ingredients. After 15 years as a Critical Care Nurse she turned to her passion for food and health. Barbara studied and worked as a pastry chef, caterer and home gardener for many years. Expanding her knowledge of disease and healing with eastern philosophy as well as all alternative modalities she traveled the world with her beloved husband Michael for business and pleasure, reinventing wonderful recipes she has sampled along the way. In 2005, Barbara successfully dealt with breast cancer, having lost one sister to the same disease and another sister continuously struggling while utilizing conventional means of treatment for this disease. For several years now Barbara has relied upon a vegan macrobiotic lifestyle, growing her own organic garden while recapturing her robust healthy life and sharing this information to all.
