TELL ME WHEN, TELL ME WHERE, AND I'LL BE THERE*...
I am a Freelance Chef, who enjoys teaching just as much as cooking, if you need help in hosting a party, or entertaining a few children while teaching them cooking skills, then I am the person you are looking for. From BBQ's to event catering, private do's to bread making, if you need to hire a chef or just need a little help with a few items which ever the case, then you are in the right place!
I believe in wholesome, hearty, nourishing food; feeding the soul just as much as feeding the body. Its not the quantity of dishes, but rather quality of them, that catches the hearts of your guests. Provide them soul food and take them on a journey of emotions.
There is a very famous saying in the world of science, "energy is neither created nor destroyed, only transferred" I live by this rule. The energy that goes into growing food, the energy that goes into preparing the food, cooking the food, is all the energy that lives in the food and therefore the energy that gets absorbed from consuming the food.
Cold hard machines, give cold hard energy; mass produced chemical filled foods, give toxin filled disconnect energy. If it is grown with love, it has the energy of love living within it; if it is prepared by hand, the warmth and care of the cook breathes within it. If it is cooked with happiness, happiness is transferred through it.
Do not underestimate the powers of energy, it can not be measured in calories, but only experienced, felt and prospered from.
I trained especially in children’s meals as I believe the best way to teach people about eating right is by being out in the field and living the message! That is how our prophet Muhammad SAW did it, he practiced what he preached, he lived every message He taught not by words, but actions.
I believe in free and easy access to knowledge, hence my blog is a completely free space, no strings attached. Apart from my blog, I drop little pieces here and there, follow me if you like on twitter, facebook or instagram.
I have a dream to bring back the glory of home cooking; simple, loving and nourishing.
If you want to go on this journey of re-discovery with me, it will be my pleasure to be your guide.
Let's come back to living in harmony with nature; eating seasonal, local, natural and fresh.
