"The fastest way to change your consciousness is to change your food." Yogi Bhajan
Vibrational and Creative Cookery
The idea for Mantra Kitchen came to me during my Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training. It dawned on me that to truly glow and grow one had to cultivate a reverent and creative relationship toward food, from that notion the concept of 'food as yoga, yoga as food' was born. In a nutshell, my belief is that preparing and ingesting food in a sacred, holistic, conscious and wholesome way can have profound effects on the food, and thus when you eat food made in that way the effects are exponential - optimum tastes, nutrition, vibration and harmony, healthful healing is the result. Conscious cookery within the culinary arts' My food odyssey began in Sydney in the late 80's, when upon learning I was intolerant to various foods set about on a quest to find and cook with foods free from sugar, gluten, dairy and pesticides. Unbeknowst to me it was the beginning of a lifelong passion for 'health foods'and a discovery of one of the most powerful and yet simple ways to heal oneself: 'food as medicine'. I travelled the world for over twenty years living the 'organic-and-healthy-food-life' from London to Las Vegas, Paris to Nelson, BC and along the way met many brilliant and colorful characters in the food and alternative health realms. All these experiences and encounters cultivated and awakened in me my very own philosophy on 'food glorious food’ as explained above, the result: Mantra Kitchen. Mantra Kitchen brings a whole new 'je ne sais quoi' to the culinary arts. Based in the Byron Shire, I passionately believe that food should not only taste good but do you good. A lot of good. I like to use a mélange of Ayurvedic, Macrobiotic, Raw food and French Provençal cooking principles. The results are healthful, revitalizing, rustic and gourmet grub! I believe that cooking with fresh, organic ingredients is muy importante, and just as vital is cooking in a joyful and serene mindset. Simply put, I offer you health, happiness and a little bit of holiness. This results is superb nutrition, optimum digestion and a natural high. Yes, food can do that for you!

WHAT IS A MANTRA?
A healing diet gladdens the heart, nourishes the body and revives memory. ~ Sushruta
"Mantras are not small things, mantras have power. They are the mind vibration in relationship to the Cosmos. The science of mantra is based on the knowledge that sound is a form of energy having structure, power, and a definite predictable effect on the chakras and the human psyche." Yogi Bhajan
