Marilyn Scher has spent most of her adult life indulging and exploring her passion for food. After many years as a noted dessert chef for several well-known restaurants in Austin, Texas, she began holding cooking classes in her home kitchen, gained an avid word-of-mouth following, and has now been teaching legions of enthusiastic students in the Austin area for over 10 years. Many of them are home cooks looking for fresh ideas and seasonally appropriate menus to serve family and friends. Marilyn’s monthly recipe column for the Austin-based Jewish Outlook is one of the newspaper’s most popular features and will soon be available online or by subscription (email TheJewishOutlook@aol.com).

A native of Dallas and graduate of the University of Texas, Marilyn has lived in Austin since the 1960s. Very early on, she developed an appreciation for the way a balanced diet can be the basis for a balanced lifestyle, a conviction that permeates every aspect of her life. She and her husband, Michael, raised two sons in a household where family meals were looked forward to, prepared at home and enjoyed together at the table every day.

Interestingly, today’s unprecedented abundance of intriguing new restaurant options has spawned a happy byproduct: the public’s heightened awareness of what constitutes good food. As a result, more fresh and diverse ingredients are now more readily available to consumers than ever before. Cooking classes are an ideal way to learn how to reap the full benefits of this remarkable bounty of choices on our market shelves, and Marilyn firmly believes that the satisfaction of preparing one’s own meals, on top of the obvious health benefits, brings intangible rewards that make for a happier day-to-day life.
