KARINA - mentor


“I have always LOVED food and my absolute passion is to cook food that heals the body naturally. I green juice everyday and have completed several juice fasts. Originally from Denmark and married into a Gujarati family, I like to incorporate either Scandinavian modern cuisine or Indian traditional dishes into my cooking repetoire. I cook a mean Thai curry too! My absolute favourite specialties are creative and delicious salads and I love cooking with vegetarian, vegan and raw food principles. Most recently I am running new seminar series in the UK on how to Reverse Diabetes through healthy cooking principles”



"Ciao my name is Giuseppina what food means to me? Its a great tonic and joy which makes me feel excited.  We are what we eat, it’s my life line. I love to share nutritional value of food to others. I feel that it brings people closer together at home for family time and in social gatherings. I also get a great joy out of watching my children explore in the kitchen…..safely!  Mmmmmmm love to see, smell and even better taste different flavours, my favourites are sweet & salty together."


DEBORAH - mentor 


"In Northern Italy. I formed my palate on my grandmother's fantastic traditional cooking, which happened as if by magic: Busy woman that she was, she very rarely let me help! And there were forays into classic British, Chinese and Indian when I visited my parents in London.  I lived in London and sold advertising space, mainly at WINE magazine. I was very lucky to sample wines way beyond my budget. And when we were not out dancing, we were out eating - Indian, Thai, top-notch British, French, Caribbean, Japanese. You name it, we ate it :) Meanwhile, our friend James coached me through my first English apple pie. And then there were children, and the need to cook every day. Amid music lessons and craft projects (mine and theirs) and school governance, the last decade has been an adventure of baking, roasting, boiling, frying, steaming and grilling. And now my children cook with me and I have finally enough confidence to try out, one by one, all the special dishes my grandmother used to make. Sweet tortelli, anyone?"
