Curious about having your next event catered with Yummy Lara’s Ayurvedic inspired vegetarian and organic delights?
I am passionate about food and health and what truly inspires me is fresh local and organic food picked straight out of the garden. That’s why I buy most of my produce from the local farmer’s market or from my local organic food supplier, Santos Organics. I love to deliver freshly cooked meals that are alive and full of energy – just how nature intended! I can create a menu that suits your particular event, gathering, workshop, training or retreat. The recipes featured on my website are also part of my catering menu along with many others please request them if you want them included in your meal plan. I am based in beautiful Byron Bay and am happy to travel to your house or venue.
