ABOUT US

Anu

Co-founder

Passionate about locally sourced organic produced and home cooked food. Anu’s childhood memories are filled with the joy of growing up in her mother’s kitchen – the proverbial heart of an Indian home. As a child, the act of churning homemade butter for ghee, pounding herbs, filling in jars of chutney, rolling out dough, eating golden brown jaggery was the norm. Anu grew up believing that food was a display of love rather than just for sustenance.

As a qualified health coach and currently studying to a complete an Ayurvedic health coaching course, Anu has been on a journey evaluating her own health and importance of going back to her roots.

‘In India, ghee has always been a sacred and a celebrated symbol of nourishment and healing; especially in the daily rituals of cooking and worship. Vast, complex, festive menus, lavish spreads and feasts were a regular part of our life. A recent discovery that my great grandmother exported homemade ghee to Burma was a weird and wonderful coincidence.’

Family, friends, travelling, dancing & reading bring her joy. Yoga, headspace & crystals are her current obsessions.
