Hosted in English, Spanish

What you'll do

This 2.5-hour experience will start with a quick neighbourhood tour on the way to our home. We will gather in the kitchen for a Plant-Based cooking lesson (based on your meal preference), discussing the nutritional components of our recipes, and how each meal nourishes us. We will prepare a main, side, and dessert, featuring a tasting of our house-made microgreens and kombucha. After we have cooked our meal, we will gather around the table for a dinner party, either inside or outdoors listening to our favourite Afrobeat music.

Hey there! We’re Ariel & Jess - an Afro-Cancubaussie foodie couple on a Holistic Healing Journey through a Plant-Based Living.

Our journey started with Jess being diagnosed with candida 5 years ago - since then our marriage of cultures has brought us nothing less than a bounty of blessings into our kitchen and lives. At the end of the workshop they will have created their own business card holder (or credit/debit card holder) to take home, and acquired new skills and a sense of accomplishment. Matthew encourages questions, and the small group size allows participants to engage with one another.

This passion led us both to enroll in a mission to share and re-connect with our ancestral wisdom and start a holistic food delivery business and discussion about plant-based living in our community! Embodying the concept that food is medicine,

I would totally do this experience again the next time we visit Victoria (preferably in the summer months cause brrrr!). Even though I eat a mostly plant-based diet it was interesting to see what/how other plant-based eaters cook and why. My wife and I enjoyed eating foods we wouldn't otherwise have thought to cook, including techniques in how to cook certain foods as well as lifestyle techniques. Ariel and Jess have successfully expanded our flavor palate!

This was a wonderful experience. My mother who has a very limited diet due to sugar restrictions said it was the best food she had eaten in many years. So very glad that we did this. Can’t wait to come back another time and try another meal. An absolute must do for anyone wanting to eat healthy and learn new ideas for cooking😀

I had a wonderful brunch with large variety of plant-based dishes, very delicious, exotic, colourful including desert with icecream and vegan brownies. I felt very welcome, everything was well prepared and there was not much to do for me - except eating 😊 and playing with the dog.

Jesse, Ariel, and especially Nala (their dog) are wonderful hosts. The experience is very casual, like having a meal with good friends. Evening of conversation , music, laughter and food. Their passion for healthy plant-based food will leave you full and inspired.

This couple is incredibly knowledgeable about the importance of our relationship with food. We loved swapping stories about our cultures, and learning from them. The food was delicious! And their pup is adorable.

We've had a amazing evening with this lovely couple! They had already prepared the meals for a few hours and explained a lot about it while finishing up, after which we ate and had very interesting conversations, really bonded with both of them, great people! Highly recommended.
