Real transformation is life enhancing, nurturing and leads one to living their life’s purpose in a conscious and profound way.

An event that celebrates fresh food and community. I was invited to prepare a delicious raw meal with some yummy desserts for this event. At the “Food to Table” event we had a meal made of fresh ingredients, sourced directly from the local market. Most importantly, it was about sharing a meal and some special time with friends while celebrating Vancouver’s fresh bounty. This was an amazing event with the right menu, and the right people!
