Appearing Saturday 5pm in the Cookery Demos
Elisabeth Haljas is an Estonian born chef who found her true love for food when going vegan at the beginning of 2010. This inspired Eli to study Health and Nutrition in Scotland, during which she also started her cookery and experimentation blog Nutrinformed. The recipes are created to unite nourishing with delicious. As an advocate of high raw diet, many of the recipes are done using a dehydrator instead of an oven. After graduation, the occasional event catering became Eli's full time job in a vegan restaurant, from where she moved on after nine months to create an organic, vegan, gluten and refined sugar free tea room in a brand new spa called bhuti in Richmond. A step closer to her dream to open her own restaurant one day was made with her first four course raw vegan pop up dinner at bhuti in May 2016, followed by one in July; shortly after which she moved on to join another start-up in central London called Rawligion. Having found a second home in this mostly raw plant based take away restaurant is slowly but surely helping her progress on to a fully raw lifestyle, incorporating foods and ingredients not even a nutrition graduate has heard of before.
With the little extra time left in the 24 hours a day, Elisabeth is working towards publishing her own first cookery book to connect her passion for food preparation with another essential part of her life - music.
