A Wildly Inspired Chef

“FOOD IS pleasure AND nourishment”

 

After working on organic farms for years and diving into studies of Herbalism with the East West School of Planetary Herbology, Jenna is obsessed with quality ingredients and wildcrafted plants.

 

A “kitchen magician” or “food fairy”, as she’s been labeled, Jenna is furthermore an endlessly curious cat, a travel lover; drawn to places and people from which she learns about new flavors, traditional recipes, and medicinal herbs. She infuses this knowledge with her own creative twist to the dishes she creates.

 

No matter what event or occasion, her intention is to serve inspired, healing and energizing food that connects us to a place and nature...food with purpose.

Movement Meditation Queen

Born with a passion for helping others, travel, and overall wellness Amanda’s interest in the body started early as she played multiple sports growing up. It wasn’t until after spending years working in gyms as a personal trainer/ group fitness instructor that she realized there was a big problem in the fitness world, a disconnection between the mind and the body. This lead Amanda to commence more intentional travels to different parts of the world in search of to how to bridge that gap. One thing she learned is that the body heals itself, and nature helps.

 

Over the years she began to dive into the studies of Ayurveda and Tantra in India. This lead her to further understand the body, the mind, and the soul on a deeper level, and their function to creating a harmonious environment for one's overall wellness.
