Heidi KrahlingLove the food you had at the Hoffman Process? Meet Heidi Krahling! Food, community, and family are the cornerstones of Heidi Insalata Krahling’s life today as they have been throughout her life. In this episode, Heidi shares about food, community, and service; how her work at the Process and in the years since helped her to understand that her true Divine Self is in service to the community with food and her gifts. No wonder Heidi creates incredibly delicious and healthy food for the Hoffman Process retreat site.

The owner of two successful restaurants in San Anselmo, Ca., Insalata’s and Marinitas (both Michelin-rated Bib Gourmands), Heidi talks about what it was like to grow up in an Italian family where food was a foundational aspect of family life.

Active with many organizations and fundraisers throughout the year, Heidi uses her energy and commitment to serve her community. Heidi’s passion for cooking is passed to others through cooking classes, mentoring cooks, and her two cookbooks, Insalata’s Mediterranean Table and Insalata’s Marinitas- A story of Two Restaurants. Heidi is active with many organizations and fundraisers throughout the year. Those closest to her heart are Lifehouse, where she has served as the culinary host for 28 years, Adopt a Family, and Extra Food serving on their board.
