General Principles of Ayurvedic Cooking

Introduction to Ayurvedic Cooking Series

Dive into delicious recipes, centuries-old techniques, and how to choose the healthiest, most balancing foods for yourself at any given moment.

We all want to feel better

We all want to know what it’s like to eat food that supports our health and vitality. We’re taught to relate to food in terms of calories, nutritional breakdowns or based simply on taste, but these approaches are missing a key ingredient: how food makes you feel.


Learn to relate to your food in a more conscious way through Ayurveda, an ancient healing system that invites you to get to know your body – and its needs and patterns – so that you can understand how to eat to feel your best.


This 4-part masterclass provides a complete, practical foundation for health and healing through food. Join Chef Divya Alter as she takes you on a journey to discover the foods and spices that will be balancing and nourishing for your particular body type and digestion. It’s an individualized approach, and one that empowers you to cultivate a deeper understanding of how to eat for your health at any given time.
