Ann Ogden Gaffney: Haute Couture to Haute Cuisine

Ann Ogden Gaffney quote

Ann Ogden Gaffney on Bump In The Road

“I learned my trade in Paris.

I also learned about food and eating.”

Ann Ogden Gafney

The daily rhythm of celebrating the food of the season, the creativity of using what was at hand, and the tie to the rhythm of the earth became part of her life. When cancer came (twice), this knowledge became invaluable.

Ann is at home in high fashion and in haute cuisine. Her book brings a healthy and approachable path to nourishing one’s body during and after cancer treatment.

Bump in the Road

Everyone hits a bump in the road. The question becomes: What do you do with it?

I share stories about how people experience, manage and navigate life's bumps, hopefully using them as a pivot into a more conscious and meaningful life.
