Jasmine Silverstein, Holistic Chef

Jasmine’s passion for food comes as a result of her personal experience of healing through diet and plant-based medicine. After years of working through her own food allergies and healing herself of a severe autoimmune disorder, she wants to share her experience and help others along their healing journey. Her inspiration comes from the food itself, and the medicinal qualities inherent within all whole, traditional food. She sees cooking as a way to connect more closely with her community and her home – the farmers, healers, chefs, eaters, and the land itself – by sourcing ingredients from local, sustainable, and ethical farmers. As a personal caterer, she enjoys being creative with recipes in order to tailor dishes to your specific needs. When she’s not busy working at her family’s business, Sweet Cane Café, she can be found experimenting in the kitchen or playing in the family’s organic garden. She is always dreaming up new recipes made without wheat, soy, genetically modified, or refined ingredients. On her own time, Jasmine finds peace in yoga and nature. Jasmine is also a Certified Master Food Preserver, and she is continually expanding her knowledge and understanding of food and healing, currently training to be a Holistic Health Coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
