Managing Director of Ger-Nis Culinary & Herb Center, Nissa Pierson, the utmost of a food enthusiast in the kitchen, mostly self-trained as a chef, but as she describes, trained in agricultural settings by women all over the globe. Nissa, a California native, began her food & travel journey as a child in Central America and has continued to travel and seek food and culture knowledge ever since. Her career in the culinary arts and organic agriculture have run parallel for over 20 years. Her culinary herb journey began in Eugene, Oregon and eventfully expanded into the agricultural sector when she was smitten with her first sighing of a sprawling basil field in California. She solicited for employment and got the job, laying the foundation for future herb takeovers, that took her all over the world and repeatedly to the Middle East when she opened Ger-Nis International LLC, a fair-trade, organic fruit & vegetable distribution company with an emphasis on fresh herbs and helping small, organic subsistence growers throughout the world bring their goods to market for fair pricing.  To further her desire to teach others about healthy living and eating, as well as agriculture and food sustainability, Nissa opened the Ger-Nis Culinary & Herb Center, specializing in a wide range of recreational cooking and educational classes for adults and children; promoting healthy eating and living habits through hands on and lecture style classroom environments. She is fully committed to her community, as well as the planet, focusing on the entire cooking and eating process, from grower to “cooker.” In addition to traveling the world seeking organic and fair-trade conversation for her business with a current focus on organic mangoes and produce marketing, she is a noted cooking instructor, food writer and recipe developer, focusing on local and season fruits and vegetable and  fresh herbs,  as well as an extremist in proving that the art of eating and cooking well is a relatively simple process and just takes enthusiasm and some tidbits of knowledge. She has specialized in children’s cooking classes for many years and believes children are seeking better food knowledge and is always up for the challenge. Besides being a passionate about food she enjoys spice in general life, good food & cultural conversation and debates, the ocean and submersing herself in the food and culture of the world. She loves solving problems and turning lemons into lemonade. Contact Nissa
