Meet Melanie Hadida, a Canadian born nutrition consultant who moved to the UK in 2011 and began to use her passion for Ayurveda and cooking to organise local vegetarian cooking workshops in Leeds. From turmeric ice lollies to the best onion bahji’s to ever grace my lips – Melanie sure knows a thing or two about rustling up a dish that is not only a delight to the taste buds, but damn good for you too.
Guiding others towards discovering healthier, more creative ways to cook for themselves and their loved ones became my number one passion.
It was such a pleasure to be invited in to Melanie’s beautiful home in Chapel Allerton, where you’ll find Aesop products for days and plants of every kind lining every windsill. I was completely mesmorised by the vibrant food she was producing right there in front of me, and having all of the ingredients there to set the scene made the shoot so much fun! Melanie is a true inspiration and I loved every minute of capturing her in action for her new website. Check it out here!
