"When you are confident in what you bring to the table, you don't need to chase and beg anyone to sit down and eat."

The Chef

Shiara van Ast Gore

My Vision

"I have big dreams for my time here. 

I am extremely passionate about the planet and sustainable eating. I hope to educate and gently encourage massive changes in how we eat and consume food. My vision is to create and provide incredibly delicious, affordable plant based meals to as many people as possible. I also hope to inspire others to do the same.


One of my favourite things to do is to teach people how to cook plant based meals at home that they and their families can truly enjoy, in place of using planet harming ingredients.

I love food and the story it can tell. I love how it brings people together. I believe that a pleasurable eating experience can change the course of history.

So lets get started."

As a chef Shiara has extensive catering experience. Her clients are local individuals, corporate and London based clientele.

In the past 2 years, happy customers include, but are not limited to :

Lady Sheila Hancock

Kate Winslet

Benedict Cumberbatch

@BoConcept Chichester






And many, many more.

Including Benedict, who has been a client of mine for many years. Shiara created a wide variety of weekly meals for the package that exceeding everyone's expectations. I look forward to working with her again in the future."
