About Ayurvedic Cooking:
Ayurvedic cooking is the yoga of food. Health and wellness is the foundation of this holistic cuisine and practice. Ayurveda emphasizes eating seasonal, plant based, and local foods as a means of benefitting the community and environment, which aligns this 5000 year-old approach to eating modern ideas about healthy eating and food systems. Uniquely, Ayurvedic eating encourages mindfulness around all aspects of a meal, including the health and wellbeing of the chefs in the kitchen, the process and techniques of cooking, and the sustainability and quality of ingredients of the food. Equally important however, is how specific foods can bring balance to the mind and body. Ayurveda encourages each person to eat for a life of balance based upon his or her own body. In Ayurveda, food is medicine; it heals the body from within.
Each guest will enjoy a personalized dining experience by taking a quiz to learn your specific dosha, or mind and body personality type. The night of the event, your three-course dinner will be made to suit your unique Ayurvedic dosha. For example, if your body is more firey and you consider yourself a Type A perfectionist, you’ll eat dishes that calm you down. Or if you’re more earthy, we'll make foods that perk you up! Eating for your body type means that the vital energies of the foods will enhance your prana, or your life force energy, recharging your mind, body and soul.
