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 blossomed into Victoria’s first green, whole foods personal chef and catering service!
Over the years, Laura’s philosophy has grown to incorporate health-focussed Ayurvedic, Blood Type, Seasonal, and Local diet philosophies, which she has incorporated into the Good For You Gourmet, a highly adaptive, convenient, gourmet, whole-foods Personal Chef and Catering service to residents and visitors to southern Vancouver Island and surrounding 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.
