Editor’s Message

Design A Cuisine - Food as Nature Intended.  Our consultancy continues to go from strength to strength as more diners, media critics and establishments appreciate the value of holistic cuisine, or food unsurpassed in taste, healing properties and appearance .  Your support is always appreciated, and it was wonderful to hear from readers of our June-July 2011 newsletter.

Over the past month, our consultant chef Yogesh Arora was invited to the Singapore Food Festival, where he conducted a holistic food demonstration.  Audience members were pleasantly surprised when Chef Yogesh shared the dishes on demonstration and were generous in their praise of the food quality.  The profile of Design A Cuisine also continues to grow in the Asian media and regional community.  Among others, Elle Magazine, Singapore Women’s Weekly and Appetiteasia.com, have included pieces on the consultancy.  Chef Yogesh also shared his knowledge on holistic cuisine at the famous TEDx platform in Kuala Lumpur.

Please stay in touch.  Your support is much appreciated as we grow the venture, helping more diners eat the healthiest, tastiest, and most sustainable food on the planet!

Till our next edition…
