“dear cade, thank you.
again, thank you for the warm, inclusive class you held last night. i know i sat back and observed, which might have appeared stand-offish or reserved, which would be far from the truth. i enjoyed the subtle release of crushed spices, the thick air of coconut, the warm pungent smell of garlic being released. at the preparation table, i saw a canvas of colours that continued to move around like the oil paint would under the brush of a renaissance artist. i heard the music of togetherness as people shared, laughed, sniffed and hummed their delights in the surprise of taste. then everyone coming together under the night sky - open, happy, connected through the basic of life: food - gifted a moment in time of communal acceptance. if i had been busy in just one of the preparation tasks, my natural disposition would have been to purposefully focus and in so doing, narrow-in and I would have missed the full richness of the wonderful experience.

“hello, i just wanted to say thanks again for reigniting a grateful relationship to nourishment and preparing food at the retreat last week. i’ve been eating whole, beautiful foods all week even after late night teaching and early starts.”

“my wife and i attended cade’s sri lankan cooking workshop. after recently experimenting with a vegetarian diet, i was a bit worried about knowing what to cook, and having the right skills. cade’s calm presence and simple and fun approach to conscious cooking was inspiring and left me very excited about this journey. i would recommend this to anyone that is passionate about food, and wants to spend a very relaxing day in a beautiful setting with good people!”

“cade is a truly a divine and gentle soul, creating and holding such an incredible space for conscious meal creation. he presents the class in such a beautiful and engaging way so that i feel empowered to re create the dishes, at home on my own! i would have previously never attempted to create such meals as I would have been overwhelmed with the complexity and sheer volume of ingredients. however, cade presents these in such a fashion that i can and have created so many tasty delights! a truly delightful experience, drawing on his expansive knowledge and innate relationship with all these revered foods.”
