Chef Jasmine Silverstein

Get to know me better

Holistic chef focused on organic, whole-foods based cuisine, specializing in food sensitivities.

Chef Jasmine’s passion for food stems from her personal experience of healing an autoimmune condition through diet and lifestyle. Her experience in the world of food started early. She was raised on her family’s organic farm, and was involved in the planting, harvesting, and processing of produce from the land. During her years in away at college, she developed a severe case of Crohn’s disease which turned her world around. The illness took away her active lifestyle and freedom, and forced her to change her way of living. It also gave her a very direct and meaningful mission: to heal herself, so that she can inspire others to do the same.

The inspiration for her creations comes from the food itself, and the nutritional qualities inherent within all whole, real foods. She sees cooking as a way to connect more closely with her community and her home – the farmers, healers, chefs, consumers, and the land itself – by sourcing ingredients from local, sustainable, and ethical farmers. As a personal caterer, she enjoys being innovative with recipes in order to tailor dishes to your specific needs.

Jasmine’s menus are based around what is available seasonally and locally. She works directly with local farmers, as well as sourcing from her family’s organic farm on the east side of the Big Island, in order to bring the best possible quality and flavor to her preparations. The food she prepares is naturally gluten free and soy free, unless otherwise requested, and she can easily work around other food sensitivities if necessary.

Jasmine is also a Certified Holistic Health Coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, as well as a Certified Master Food Preserver, and she is continually expanding her knowledge and understanding of food and healing. She teaches workshops on fermented foods and whole foods based cooking classes in order to spread the awareness of food as medicine. On her own time, Jasmine finds peace in yoga, nature, and travel adventures.
