Yogic Food Garden is an upcoming private dinner highlight in Shanghai Pudong.Following the Yoga healing food philosophy the Happy Chef LuLu and her team prepare delicious and healthy vegan fusion food. The dinner event always starts with a short food appreciation and a live music opening ceremony.
This time we had a pumpkin pie and fresh carrot as appetizer. As starter everyone can choose between “Spring Wind” and Spring Rain”, “Spring Wind” is salad with the freshest organic vegetables and sprouts from Haikele, accompanied with our house dressing made with our homemade mustard sauce and organic olive oil. “Spring Rain” comes from a story between a Taiwanese author and her Spanish husband. She cooked her glass noodles one day and without having seen such thing he asked her “what is this?” She said it was the rain she collected in spring. So we have collected the first drops of spring rain plus purple cabbage as our soup of the night.
For main course we have used our house mill to grain the organic wheat to make our own pita bread, topped with our own one-week fermented organic black bean hummus sauce, decorated with organic black berries.
Between the tasty food and romantic atmosphere we had refreshing lemon “Happy Water” (water that has listened to music and prayers), organic “No Worries” tea and South African Rooibos tea. On this day we managed to prepare several homemade produce such as organic based detox nutritive breakfast, Korean kimchi, mustard sauce, house dressing and almond chilly with organic cold pressed sunflower oil etc. Old guests would order ahead in order to make sure the stock because we do not produce and stock.
As the clock moved forward, the fountain and the solar energy avatar plant lit up in the darkness. I guess everyone had quite a memorable time this evening.
Thanks for the kind sponsoring of HONA Organics for their gift for all guests.
