Now in our 2nd year, your Tri-Cities Cancer Center will be shifting how we offer our cooking classes for the remainder of 2020. Our Cancer Crushing Cuisine Cooking Classes will now be offered as Small Bytes, bite-sized virtual cancer crushing cooking classes you can attend from the comfort of your own home! We want to ensure that our community continues to receive valuable information on preventing and reducing cancer risk in a safe and effective way.

Your Tri-Cities Cancer Center and Chef Kyle Thornhill of Tsunami Catering along with Red Mountain Kitchen are teaming up to offer 1 hour classes meant to be educational and fun. Participants will not only enjoy time with an amazing chef, but they will also receive education on the cancer fighting properties of the produce and other ingredients included in the dish they will prepare.

Here’s how to participate – the process is as simple as 1 – 2 – 3:

  1. Register to attend one of our upcoming classes –Classes are limited to 20 participants
  2. Needed ingredients will be delivered via a no-contact delivery to your doorstep prior to your class.
  3. A few minutes before the start of your class, you will join your cooking class from home via Zoom on your phone, laptop or tablet!

Prior to each class, participants will be provided a list of kitchen supplies needed to complete the dish, a link to join their cooking class virtually, and any additional information needed to have a fun, educational experience. We hope that you will join us!

Kyle Thornhill Biography

A native of Napa Valley, CA, Kyle Thornhill trained under great chefs such as Cindy Paulson (chef and cookbook author) at Mustards Grill, Thomas Keller at the French Laundry, and chef Bob Turley at the popular Yountville Grill. Kyle was named Executive Chef for Platt Productions a role in which expanded to events with Robert Mondavi Winery, Sutter Home. Kyle also co-founded and co-operated a kid’s cooking school in Napa Valley. Most recently Kyle held the position of Executive Chef for Mills College and managed catering as for the Oakland Raiders NFL team.

In the fall of 2017 Kyle moved to the Pacific NW to be inspired by the bounty that surrounds us in the Columbia valley, thus Tsunami Catering was established by owners Kyle and Becky Thornhill in 2018 to provide a higher level of food services and education to the Tri-Cities community. We are a full-service catering company providing catering for large and small events, lunch meetings, breakfast service including made-to-order omelette bars, private chef, and food consulting.





Join us for an amazing evening celebrating the culinary accomplishments of our local restaurants at the Cancer Crushing Cuisine Dine OUT! Event. Local restaurants will compete for “Cancer Crushing Restaurant of the Year!” Event participants will sample the best in healthy cuisine, using “cancer fighting foods”, while voting for a winner.
