Healthy Cooking

 Many of our leading events offer healthy cooking demo and food tasting by renowned Wellness chefs, who are also trained nutritionists and dieticians. We offer a wide variety of healthy food during these demos. It could range from generic experimental diets (approved by our Wellness Doctor Patrons) to mouthwatering SOS (Salt, Oil, Sugar) free food preparations, PBWF (Plant Based Wholefood), as well as popular global cuisines.

We work closely with several Wellness nutritionists like Timaree Hagenburger, Cathy Fisher, Katie May, Gayathri Shanbhag, Veena Uttarwar, Ankita Kaul and several others. TrueNorth, South Asia Heart Center, VeganOutreach are some of institutions that work with us to organize food tasting, cooking demos and create a galaxy of healthy recipes that our stakeholders can use and adopt in their daily life.

We shall be giving out recipes on a regular basis and present videos of cooking demos and invite you to these sessions. Contact us to learn more………
