Intuitive Cooking School

An 6-week Online Cooking School 

  •  Cook with confidence

  •  All rooted in real food nutrition, so you can finally reach your goals, love the entire process, & never have to go on a diet ever again.


Cooking is the key to unlocking long-lasting & sustainable health

Tired of feeling overwhelmed & anxious in the kitchen after always wanting to learn how to cook? 

Feel like recipes get you nowhere? Unable to feel better because you hate eating "healthy food"? 

I know how that feels because I have been there. And now, you don't ever have to feel that way again, because this course has you covered.

I speak to people every week who tell me they're tired of feeling overwhelmed in the kitchen with long recipes and hours of prep time

They want to learn to cook with ease, not slave over a million obscure ingredients trying to follow recipes that don't end up tasting awesome. I mean, it should be worth it, right?

They want to eat "healthy" but also want it to taste delicious. Honestly, who doesn't?

Trust me, I get it. I was there for most of my life. And after years as a private chef & nutritional therapist and learning to cook intuitively, where cooking can be fun and easy, but also amazing, I created Intuitive Cooking School to help you do the same.

I am looking for a group of highly committed people who are ready to dive in & change their lives with the way they cook 

Instead of just giving you recipes (in which you won't learn for the long-run), Intuitive Cooking School's curriculum will be based on technique templates rooted in classical methods. 

Swap ingredients out, use what you have, cook for your exact taste, save money, and live stress-free in the kitchen.

About Ashley

Hi! I'm Ashley Pardo, and I'm a Private Chef and Nutritional Therapy practitioner living in Miami, FL.  

I've been cooking professionally for over 5 years with my private chef business. I cook for a wide variety of people with different needs, tastes, and preferences. I also cook for myself and my family, almost every day.  

I've taught hundreds of people how to cook, including children, in my cooking classes and workshops. If I can teach children to cook, you can, too!  

I believe that cooking is the ultimate act of self-care. Ten years ago, I was 50+ pounds overweight. Uncomfortable and depressed (with zero knowledge of nutrition or cooking) I was desperate to lose weight. I thought I needed to eat bland "diet food", so I did. And I lost weight. But it returned just as quickly.  

I've learned that in order to lose weight sustainably and feel good forever, you need to love the way you eat every day, and cooking is the way to do that. It was by honoring myself and not denying the fact that I LOVE food & eating that I'm able to feel my best.  

I am a classically trained chef, with certificates in both the Culinary & Baking Arts from Boston University's Gastronomy Program, founded by Julia Child & Jacques Pepin (one of my cooking teachers).  

I've lived & worked on farms in Italy that opened my eyes to see that good & amazing cooking is approachable & attainable to anyone who is willing to learn a few simple techniques.  

I also spent 15+ years struggling with my body & weight. It wasn't until I learned the methods I'm teaching in this course that I was able to love what I ate, learn to make it, and implement it every day.

I know, without a doubt, that learning to cook with my easy methods will transform your life in the kitchen, your body, & the way you feel, every day.
