Samu, a word from Buddism, refers to the practice of mindfulness in everyday activity, such as cooking. This is not only a way to cope with the adversities of life, but also to create a spirit of generosity in the community.
This fits in with the aspirations of Samu Kitchen as I hope to share with others a kinder and more sustainable way of eating.
At Samu, food provenance is very important as well as reducing food miles, food waste and creating more sustainable ways of growing, cooking and eating. Nutrition is a core part of Samu's aim and honouring the powerful effect of food on the body and mind. My mission from the start was to celebrate exciting life-giving food that would be good for the body as well as creating a community driving towards food security, health and to help everyone access healthy food.
I have worked in the catering industry for 20 years and have thrived on working around people and food. I love feeding people and work very closely with clients to create bespoke events exactly as they envision. Whether catering at a festival, wedding, retreat or feeding family and friends to same love and attention goes into every event.
