Sarah Zulauf was born in Las Vegas, Nevada June 4, her parents moved to Los Angeles California one year later. Growing up in sunny California gave her a passionate love for the beaches and Hollywood rock n roll, pretty much anything outdoors, where good food and good music resides, was all that was needed for a great day.
Sarah spent a lot of time with her grandmother Ruth, who everyone called affectionally “Honey”. Sarah adored and cherished Honey and spent as much time as she could with her. “Honey” would teach Sarah all her delightful secrets of cooking. Every single meal always included a soup and salad at Honey and Papa’s, Sarah’s grandfather, they lived into their late 80’s and 90’s. Sarah thinks it was due to all those soup and salads. One of the best secrets Honey shared was, “add some schnapps to that recipe, but most of all be happy in the kitchen”. Sarah is sure that her love affair with the culinary world was definitely 90% inspired by Honey and 10% Schnapps.
In her mid 20’s Sarah later moved to the Big Apple and settled down with a husband and had four Children. Having kids widened her knowledge in what actually goes into our produce, meats and chicken and especially the snacks we give to our kids. Upon this realization she started opening books and studying how the foods we eat effect our body, learning about herbs and healing foods, curing the body without toxins and while she did not eradicate the use of over the counter medicine, through her knowledge and application she was completely successful creating an environment through foods and herbs where she and her family had a diminished use for them. Providing clean, plant based foods and lean proteins she saw a big difference in the over all health and turned around most of the allergies with her children.
Sarah also gave a community 6 week food demo course called “Confident in the kitchen”
She donated her pesto’s and biscotti to synagogues and local farmers markets, to create a buzz for her new business. Word got out and people started hiring Sarah’s Organic Gourmet for dinner parties, backstage rock n roll after parities, camping retreats, Passover and specialty programs.
