My name is: Loria Stern.
I’m known as: A chef and baker, especially of my flower shortbread cookies, which I ship nationally.
My expertise is in: Baking! Especially with edible botanicals and all natural colorants.
I stay physically healthy with: Going on a three-mile walk in my neighborhood five times a week.
I keep my emotions balanced with: Dancing, deep breaths, phone chats with friends, hot baths.
I’m intellectually stimulated by: I’ve recently been into mycology, learning about the sustainability of mushrooms. Love the book The Complete Mushroom Hunter by Gary Lincoff.
I was recently transformed by: Dipping my flower shortbread cookie into coffee. I can’t believe it's taken me over five years to do this, but it’s been a game-changing afternoon snack! (Silly, I know.)
In the last six months, the ritual that has become so important for me is: Going on my neighborhood long walks.
Here’s how you can do it too: Just step outside wearing some good walking shoes, with your headphones (or not), and start walking!
It helps me live my process because: It’s balancing, to get some air, take a break from whatever you’re doing and just move your body.
