Vegan Mediterranean Culinary Services

Greetings and Welcome to my culinary world! 

I’m a self-taught vegan Mediterranean chef, French Pastry Chef, culinary & wine pairing instructor and event caterer. 

Everyone has a story and mine is rather inspirational and worth telling. My wonderful journey to the creation of Lavender Design + Cuisine began in 2011 when I decided to leave a highly successful career in high tech sales spanning 20 years. It was time to pursue my lifelong dream. Since then, it has been an amazing and rewarding experience. I'm immeasurably grateful to do what I love thanks to my wonderful clients and amazing students. They are the center of my culinary world and a great inspiration. Click here to view their beautiful testimonials!

Feng Shui and Interior Design Services!

Your home is your sanctuary. It represents you and your inner-self. When you mindfully design inspiring living and working environments based on the principles of Feng Shui, you'll cultivate and enhance love, health, happiness and prosperity in your life!

Doesn’t that sound wonderful? You’ll take this idea from a dream to reality with me by your side.

Your Personalized 3-Steps Plan will include:

Step 1 Home, office and goals assessment
Step 2 Decluttering and organization plans
Step 3 Feng Shui and interior design enhancements

What is Feng Shui and why is it important?

Feng Shui is the art of arranging your home and work environments to enhance the flow of positive energy (chi), love, health, happiness and prosperity in your life.  When energy flow is stagnant or obstructed (i.e. clutter), it can have a direct negative impact on your life! If you have found that your environment doesn’t make you feel good or bring forth happiness, productivity and prosperity, there’s likely an obstruction of energy flow that needs to be addressed.   

Decluttering is the all important first step in the Feng Shui process! If energy (chi) can't flow freely, nothing else can begin to improve! The next step is the organization, which will bring clarity and empowerment. Lastly, the application of Feng Shui principles will cultivate and enhance balance, harmony, love, happiness and prosperity. 

Inspired Kitchen Transformation Story! 

“Ellie helped us to transform our cluttered and disorganized kitchen into a wonderful gathering and entertaining space! We started by decluttering our fridge, pantry, cabinets and counters. We discarded all the stained and chipped dishes and glasses and got rid of broken appliances and expired food items. We brought in a container of herbs, fresh flowers and a basket of lemons from our garden, which added life and color to the kitchen. These simple steps have completely transformed our kitchen. Not only do we love the good feeling and energy in there, but we now cook more often. We truly enjoy spending time together in our beautiful kitchen over meals and especially for coffee in the morning! Thank you so much, Ellie, for your practical and creative solutions." Sofia and Marco, Capitola
