Class Teachers

Owner of and founder of Hipcooks (established 2004), Monika is famous for never stressing in the kitchen, making food out of "nothing", measuring with her hands, and dancing while cooking. Next to teaching cooking classes and being a mother to little Lucia, she loves to have dinner parties and socialize - Hipcooks is an extension of herself. Monika's everyday foods are, ironically, the simple stuff. She owes her copious energy to raw fruits and veggies, yet she honors and loves the celebration of cooking!
