Augmenting and Extracting Foods Workshop with Smita Daya

August 25th ~ 2:00 p.m. - 4 p.m.

Class includes cooking a meal, dynamic lecture and 

a glass of wine! $80 per person


Still struggling with food and eating? The solution isn't in a new diet! We must heal our relationship with food first!

The practices of Ayurveda bring balance, which is why the concept of augmenting and extractive foods is a powerful way to guide the way we prepare our meals. In this workshop, we will discuss the guideline to follow – to make your meal planning simple. We will be cooking a meal using this concept.

Meet Smita Daya The Ayurvedic Chef

Smita Daya worked in the legal field for the past 25 years and is now following her passion for healthy cooking and opened her own Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar tap room in February of 2016, named “Olea Oliva!” located at The Avenue at East Cobb. Having lived in Zambia, South Africa and England, the Marietta, Georgia native creates some unique dishes and loves to “Spice Things Up’ in a healthy way. Smita learnt cooking from a very young age and learning from her grandmother and mother and learning the importance of using super spices and how to incorporate them in everyday cooking. Smita was recently featured as a Top Chef at the Atlanta Food Service Expo and Hospitality Foundation Education of Georgia. She has also taught cooking workshops at the Arts Institute of Atlanta and worked with Forsyth County Schools on Plant Based education.

Smita cooks with passion and loves to empower her customers to take control by making healthy food choices. It’s not difficult and it’s not about “giving up” food, life is about making choices. Over time, making healthier choices as opposed to less healthy choices determines your path in life toward healthier outcomes, reducing the risk of disease, and promoting healthier active years as you age. Doing the cooking workshops has helped us empower the consumers in making healthy choices where we strive to share our passion with you, the consumer in our store and online as we promote a food culture driven by nutrition, flavor, education, and excitement.

Smita Daya holds the following certifications:

•"Plant-Based Nutrition" from The T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies and eCornell.

•"Ayurvedic Chef" and "State of Health" from Hale Pule, LLC, a recognized member of National Ayurvedic Medical Association (NAMA)

•"Ayurveda Nutrition and Lifestyle" from SKK Ayurveda & Panchakarma, New Delhi, India.
