About Chef Laura

 

Chef Laura Moore began her career as a whole foods chef in 1998, as a vegan and vegetarian recipe contributor to “Fresh Piks Organics” newsletter. Her loyal following of recipe lovers were soon asking her to cook for them, privately and for special events. Her passion for making and eating wholesome, natural foods, and deep green interest in the earth-friendly practices of recycling and composting soon blossomed into Victoria’s first green, whole foods personal chef and caterer. Laura’s company, the Good For You Gourmet, offers a convenient, gourmet, whole-foods Personal Chef and Catering service to residents and visitors to southern Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands.

Her mission is to support clients’ health by providing them with a wide variety of wholesome, health-supporting and delicious seasonal menu selections, with respect for each clients personal dietary preferences. Whether she is preparing meals for a family or catering a special event, teaching a group or private cooking class, she uses only the most wholesome un-medicated, free range or organic meat, dairy and produce, heritage grains, natural sweeteners, cold-pressed organic, non-hydrogenated good oils and fats, non-gmo, non-irradiated herbs and spices, and sea salt.

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.” 


Crystal & Ryan, and Liam, November 2012

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

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.”
