Nissa Pierson

Ever curious and interested in embarking on new challenges in life and her cooking, Nissa questioned what the point of our reliance on animal by-products was really all about. Thus began her quest into vegandom, figuring out what nondairy ingredients make baked goods tick, how to prepare a delicious meal without relying on animal fats, butter, that old friend cheese, and all of these skills have been incorporated into her lifestyle since. Director of Ger-Nis International, Nissa is a long time culinary instructor and lover of fresh herbs. In her rare free time, she moseys around the world in search of good surf and conversation, visits her growers, and teaches an old dog new tricks. Contact Nissa
