Get to know me better
Food as medicine. Heal bosy, mind and spirit.
Born in Canada yet meant to be in a tropical land, 8 years ago i took the leap to Costa Rica and never looked back. My husband is Costa Rican and we have two beautiful daughters. Our goal as a private chefs is to change peoples mindsets about their relationship with food and to creaye deliciousness with the healthiest ingredients possible. We use local, organic products and try to keep a healthy menu when creating food for our customers. We specialize in vegan, vegetarian, whole foods plant based, gluten free and raw live foods. I suffered for years with debilitating Crohns disease and now i am thriving in a healthier and more peaceful way of life and have been symptom free for almost 12 years! Food is medicine!
