Chef Laura's expertise primarily features whole foods, and includes vegan, vegetarian and multiple allergy diets, including gluten-free for celiacs. Over the years we have been asked to prepare meals for many clients with very specific dietary restrictions based on allergies, dietary intolerances and medical conditions as well as dietary preferences, and have thus developed a wide range of menu options to suit a wide variety of dietary requests.

The Good For You Gourmet currently offers unique West Coast and International cuisine, including Asian, Ayurvedic, Eastern, Mediterranean, Mexican, omnivore, Paleo, vegan and vegetarian fare. Most recipes may be adjusted to suit celiac-friendly/gluten free requests, as well as food allergies, including dairy/wheat/egg/nut/seafood and soy. Learn more

Tofu or not Tofu – True Soy Craftsmanship

The squat one-storey building that meets my eye is white with forest green trim. Sooke Soy Foods tofu shop is smaller than I had imagined, and as unassuming as the humble soybean, it greets me quietly. Through a screen door that sticks, I enter a warm almond scented mist. Wiry and jovial in his bright…read more →

Chef Laura came to our home to prepare meals on a weekly basis, fresh groceries in hand. We had specific dietary requirements: primarily salt free, low fat, low sugar, high fiber and vegetarian. Laura met these criteria unfailingly, and yet was consistently able to produce extraordinary & exciting flavors in her many varied creations. Laura did all the shopping for her ingredients and clearly had exceptional knowledge about nutrition & wholesome quality products.” 


Susan & Jamie H., 2002

As a busy individual with a lot on the go, I appreciated how quickly Chef Laura was able to accommodate my cooking request - within a week of contacting her I had a fridge and freezer full of ready-to-eat food. Laura worked to develop a menu plan that addressed both my vegan dietary choice and individual food preferences. While all the dishes were delicious, the kichadi is beyond amazing, and I will be requesting it again! Laura provided a fantastic timely service that delivered excellent vegan food, great convenience and flexibility, and a tidy kitchen to boot.” 

Dannica S., October 2010

As the end of my maternity leave grew closer, I worried how my family would cope with my going back to work. I was plagued by \'what\'s for dinner?\' anxiety, and wondered how I would be able to spend quality time with my son while trying to cook dinner every day. Chef Laura\'s services were exactly what we needed to ease this transition. A well-stocked freezer of lovingly prepared, delicious and nutritious food put my mind at ease that at the end of the day my family would always be well fed.”
