Cooking and creating food is for me an artistically inspired process. We begin eating with our eyes, so how the food looks is of the utmost importance. Nutritional value of food is also of primary concern, as are the holistic health benefits and energetic effects of what we put into our bodies. When we eat we need to feel good about what we are consuming and to nurture and heal ourselves with not only what we eat but the environment and the atmosphere in which we eat. Ayurveda views food as medicine and we really are what we eat.

I encourage you to really connect with where your food comes from, how it is prepared and how you then eat and digest. I also have an Ayurvedic Allotment where I grow fresh herbs and vegetables. I am in the process of organising the beds into the various different food groups for the different constitutional types! 

I am available throughout the south west uk to cater for your lovely events, and for private group whole food cookery sessions. The food I create and offer is natural, seasonal, locally sourced, freshly prepared, ethical, sustainable, vegan (therefore cruelty free), sugar free and gluten free. Please connect with me if of interest. I can offer more bespoke menus if needed, which can be Ayurvedic or Macrobiotic as well as general good wholesome vegan meals. 

The cost is £108 per day plus £12 per person for breakfast, lunch and supper.
