Michelle Norris was a self taught, life-long gourmand and is now a trained Chef, with a love for coaching others in the finer points of achieving true kitchen mojo. A burning desire to re-write food policy on a national level as a “credentialed” food crusader has her currently pursuing a degree in the Culinary Arts. By creating new, innovative and gastronomic-delight Paleo versions of avant garde gourmet foods, Michelle wins-over even hardened skeptics to the idea that one need not sacrifice love of fabulous tasting food en-route to achieving — and maintaining — true Ancestral Wellness. As her food philosophy — “Variety, flavors & herbs are the spices of life” — suggests, she experiments continually with an incredible home collection of exotic spices, herbs, vinegars and oils to create an ever-expanding repertoire of amazing dishes. She is the Executive Chef and owner of Instinct Catering & Events in Austin, Texas.
