Her videos, book and work over the years, have inspired me to want to cook and travel, but most of all Cynthia has awakened me to want to experience more of my inner joy and to live a life with more appreciation and celebration. There is magic in experiencing Cynthia’s energy, expressions, ability to connect with others and a refreshing inner spirit that sparkles on-camera and in-person. It is the spirit of who Cynthia is and the way she lives her life as a celebration. After viewing the DVD, I couldn’t wait to eat Greek food. On Cynthia’s website,, I learned the important elements of the Mediterranean Diet and how to make a traditional Greek salad that I love eating several times a week. I think A Greek Islands Destination Cooking Class DVD, Cynthia and her online recipes & lifestyle tips are refreshing and delicious!” — Teresa Rodgers, Organizational Consultant,
