Whether you’re just learning how to be a vegetarian, or you’re interested in becoming a better cook, or maybe you are interested in the idea of spiritualized food—try us out and see what you think.

There are ideals of Krishna conscious cooking such as cleanliness, vegetarianism (no meat products, fish or sea food, or eggs), and being God-conscious while cooking. And there are also aesthetic ideals such as making food that looks appealing, tastes good, and is also nutritious. But we also like to keep in mind that many of you live in the real world, and ideals are sometimes difficult to attain.

So we are here offering support, inspiration, education, and an online cooking community where visitors can share their experiences with each other.
