Aloha!
I have always enjoyed eating good food and serving others. I believe serving others is the greatest gift of a leader and, with grace, can bring joy to anyone. Although I have worked in many aspects of the food service industry, my work has been actually creating dishes as a Chef for Parties, Retreats, Weddings, and events lately. I also Created and Run the “SuperNatural Juice Company™!” which includes Signature Elixirs that people have been coming back for for three years now! I call myself the “UnderCover Lover” because I have a deeper message of Health and Vitality through Nutrition and Gratitude.(There is more to the story but that is a secret!) I get the message across by being a positive example in my own life.
In  the last 12 years…my interests has been in Living Foods. Although I do not limit myself to any one discipline, living foods are so beautiful to create and the design of a dish is fun for me as I focus on beauty and nutritional aspects and of course…flavor.I can easily adapt to a Raw, Vegan or Vegetarian diet.
I am very interested in Nutrition and am very familiar with most supplements and food in the health Food stores. I love to use Fresh organic Herbs and flowers and include the Rainbow Diet concept!
I can say that my personality is quite Unique and Dynamic. I definitely flow with the Divine Force of Life and incorporate my love for Creator Source Energy and appreciation for all that is into my Edible Creations! I believe in supporting the Earth by using only non-chemically treated produce and non-GMO foods. I give local farmers as much support as I can…and I grow some produce myself! For me…it is a Delight to serve those who appreciate food made with Love!…Blessings and Gratitude!!!!!
I would like to say Thank You for looking over my resume and will look forward to hearing from you very soon! The best way to reach me is :facebook: Mohani Matahari)
…..Blessings of Aloha,  Mohani MataHari
