what makes our chefs different 
A conscious chef is someone whose work revolves around healing with food, respecting the earth, and wanting to offer more to the profession than the classic hectic restaurant paradigm. None of our chefs are identical. Each has their own specialties, own style, and own life experience to share through their food. All of our chefs embody the following qualities:
*A passion for food, wellness, and human connection
*Working knowledge of various cuisine styles and dietary restrictions
*Calm, personable demeanor, and ability to work calmly in open kitchens
*Personal relationships with local farmers and food purveyors
*Knowledge of local and seasonal ingredients
*Holistic health-minded in work and life
*Able to create customized menus for a variety of specialty diets and allergies
*A knowledge that LOVE is the most important ingredient we can put into food.

what is a yoga chef? 
Yoga literally means “to yoke” – meaning to combine mind, body, spirit, and practice. Just as we combine these qualities on the mat, so can we in the kitchen. As conscious eating become more prolific, there is a growing need for grounded conscious chefs to cook for retreats, individuals, and groups. We are here to support this movement!
investment
Rates vary depending on food style, chef’s experience, logistics, and guest count, and while all chefs set their own rates, we adhere to industry standards. Newer chefs will have lower rates so they can gain experience, and seasoned chefs will charge professional rates.
In general, expect to pay between $45-85/hour + cost of food + service charge + tax. Some chefs will have preset menus available that charge by guest (rather than an hourly) that range between $40-200 per person. Meal prep options range from $150-$350/visit + food cost. Retreat catering averages around $25/meal in package forms.
