WELCOME TO BERKELEY MACROBIOTICS

SALUTATIONS!



    WELCOME and thanks for visiting this blog, which I use more like a website. I am Michael Bauce and live in Berkeley, CA. The Bay Area has access to the freshest and widest variety of produce available in the world and I am happy and proud to call this home (since 1978). 
  My passion is food and natural healing. I have been practicing macrobiotics since 1988. I have conducted private and group cooking classes in schools, hospitals, senior centers, summer camps and more. I have lectured at various venues, been interviewed on national radio and established Healthy Meals to Go, a home-delivery business. I have also been a member of Alice Water's School Lunch Initiative as well as a member of the Center for Informed Food Choices. I was a chef at both the Macrobiotic Grocery & Learning Center and Manzanita Restaurant in Oakland and a partner in establishing Organica Restaurant in Berkeley.  I have been working as a cooking instructor as part of the Network for a Healthy CA since 1999, giving cooking classes to children k-12 public schools. I offer private and group cooking classes (adults & children), a to-go meal service (see below), monthly sit-down Dinners, private cooking and health consultations. Please email me @ Michaelmacro@gmail.com. for more info

ANNOUNCING BERKELEY TO-GO MACRO MEALS BY MARTA & MICHAEL!
THURSDAY DINNERS:
Hey Friends!

We recently connected with Josephine.com, a new community-based meal service that offers home-cooked meals to go. Marta and I did our first meal two weeks ago and had a great time meeting vegans, parents and foodies from our neighborhood. We wanted to invite you to join us for our next meal - Savory Seitan with Mushrooms and Burdock, Baked Kabocha Squash, and Green Salad with Sesame Oil. The meal will be all vegan, macrobiotic, and made with organic local ingredients.

RSVP for your portions and read more about the food here:

You RSVP on the meal page (above) with your cell phone number to get the exact pick up address by text message. If you don't have text messaging simply reply to me and let me know which meal and how much you'd like to RSVP for and I can send you the info via email.

MINESTRONE SOUP MADE WITH FRESH CRANBERRY BEANS

September 24, 2013
Minestrone soup for dinner tonight! . Started with fresh Cranberry Beans from the Berkeley Farmer's Market. Put them in a pot of boiling water. Meanwhile, I sautéed onion, garlic, carrots and added basil, parsley and Si Salt (if anyone in the Bay Area wants SiSalt, please message me). Added to the beans once they were soft and cooked thoroughly, tasting for salt content and adding more, cooking more if needed. Topped with fresh basil and served with WW unyeasted bread.
