ARABELLA PARKINSON 

TRAVELLING CHEF & HOST

Born in Johannesburg (South Africa),  Bella attended culinary school in Cape Town before cutting her teeth on luxury yachts in the mediterranean and fine dining restaurants in Cape Town.

'I am a nomadic restaurant, working in remote areas in testing conditions. This is where I thrive most. I strive for diversity, new connections, new foods and intimate experiences around food.

I am a holistic chef. I have worked with many different cuisines. I live on a plant-based diet, but I believe that there is not one correct diet for everyone. I focus more on creating a good relationship with food. Listening to our bodies, understanding what works for us, doing the work in a mindful and environmentally conscious way. My food is seasonal, vibrant, fresh and accessible. It is light, holistic, WHOLE.

Beautiful, thought provoking food that tickles sensations as well as allows you to THRIVE.

 

 I like to eat the rainbow, I like to feed others the rainbow too. The more colourful your meal, the more nourishing it will be. Food is the most intimate art form we interact with. It is the only art form we physically ingest, that becomes us!        Photographer: Sam Lowe
