Jacky Lama

Jacky Lama

Holistic Chef

Meet Jacky

Food and creativity have always sparked my curiosity. Raised by Palestinian parents in the tropical setting of Central America, I was exposed to various cuisines and cooking styles. Whether it was helping mom out cook her recipes or growing fruits in our backyard, food has always intrigued me.

After getting my degree in Advertising, I felt that I didn’t belong in that world and thus decided to pursue my passion for food. This led me to The Art Institute in Vancouver where I graduated in 2011, and have made the city home since then.

Through the years, I’ve learned simplicity and quality ingredients are what make superb food so naturally, this concept became an integral part of my cuisine.

With simple techniques and imagination, I want you to enjoy a healthy lifestyle without sacrificing taste and flavor. The feeling of bringing beautiful food to people and hearing their comments about their experience is the most rewarding aspect of food.

Allow me to expand your palate with new cuisines and ingredients!

She loves that food can bring people together, of all ages and cultures and loves to use simple whole ingredients, letting the fresh flavours speak for themselves.

Savannah Hamilton

Savannah Hamilton

Holistic Chef

Meet Savannah

Growing up, my family always connected over food and cooking and baking was a frequent family bonding activity. I come from a family with many chronic health issues and when I started to experience health issues myself I started to look into nutrition & holistic approaches to wellness. This sparked my passion for nutrition and I decided to pursue this by getting my Bachelor of Science in Food, Nutrition & Health from UBC. During this time I also received a Holistic Culinary Certificate from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition.

I am so excited to be able to combine my loves of nutrition and cooking to help bring joy to others. Knowing that food can be a source of stress for some, I love to be able to take that off your shoulders and bring people together with fresh, balanced meals that still bring comfort and excitement to meal times.

Erika Egerman

Erika Egerman

Holistic Chef

Meet Erika

For as long as I can remember, cooking has always been a huge part of my life. I grew up taking every possible cooking class that I could after school and bringing every recipe I learned home with me. I’ve always had a passion for experimenting with flavors and techniques and going to Northwest Culinary Academy here in Vancouver really made me want to experience, learn and taste as much as I could. For me, there’s not much comparable to the joy of cooking for the people you care about. I’m so excited to cook food for you that feels as good as it tastes.

After studying nutrition at UBC + IHN, and going through my own healthy journey and digestive upsets – I realize there is no one size fits all diet! Each of us is so unique, and we must eat that way as well. Other than that, I believe in putting quality first. If you do that, your food will always taste delicious!

My passion for health and wellness started when I moved to Canada and began exploring the many different cultures that Vancouver has to offer. It wasn’t long until I came to the realization that what you put into your body is a direct correlation with how you feel.
