SOUL Food Salon is excited to host
Liv Wu
Chef, Instructor, Consultant
Art and Science of Flavor
Tuesday, October 11, 2022
11–1pm PT
Woodside Village Church


Liv Wu is a chef, award-winning cookbook author (The Grand Wok Cookbook) and an 18-year food journalist for the San Francisco Chronicle's Food and Wine section. She was the founding chef-instructor and program manager of the Teaching Kitchens at Google where she guided the chef instructors at the company's Mountain View, Pittsburgh, Seattle, New York and London campuses. She retired from Google in 2016 after 9 1/2 years in the food program.

In 2017, she founded Llv Cook Eat, a cooking school and learning kitchen. Liv has trained instructors at various university culinary/ nutrition programs—in Baltimore, Chicago and Portland—and locally. She hosts team builds and other one-time, seasonal events (they get five-star ratings on Airbnb experiences!). She's led thousands of cooks and would-be cooks through the process of cooking recipe-free. Her philosophy is that awareness of flavors creates a joy of eating and the freedom to create flavors brings joy and health to cooking. 

She offers a virtual, hybrid version of her signature course, Food & Flavor Fundamentals, which is offered in short three-class modules. Her test class this summer received rave reviews.

At the Salon:
Liv will talk about her passion project—guiding people to cook intuitively and recipe-free. Her method helps both beginners and seasoned cooks build confidence. It saves time, uses seasonal and healthy ingredients and develops creativity while building community. She will guide participants through her process and philosophy, which leads her students to better cooking with the freedom to experiment with flavors.
