Healthy Chef Partyologist Nancy Waldeck is a culinary educator and innovator. She teaches in a variety of corporate settings like Google, Norfolk Southern, Florida Blue, Calphalon and Piedmont Hospitals, plus a number of respected culinary schools like Atlanta's own Cooks Warehouse. A media veteran, several times a month she enjoys sharing creative tips and techniques about healthy cooking on NBC TV's Atlanta and Company show. Nothing makes cookbook author Nancy happier than sharing the treasures of explorations with others, so she hosts carefully curated wine and culinary trips around the world for small groups of curious guests.
After almost 20 years in the corporate world, Crystal realized that what was once a weekend pursuit and avocation had become increasingly important to her - so she decided to take the leap and focus on her passion for baking and pastry. In 2013, she completed an intensive Pastry Arts Course at L'Ecole National Superieure de Patisserie near Lyons, France followed by an internship in a pastry shop in Paris.
