About Marcella Dirks
Born in The Netherlands and having grown up on several continents, my ensuing wanderlust to travel the world gave me an intimate understanding of language through cuisines. Macro-biotic cooking had found me earlier, but it wasn't until my studies in the Fine Arts moved me to pursue the art of living rather than a pretty picture to be framed, that my values as a vegetarian and believer in the Holistic arts, brought me to study the natural culinary arts as well as Ayurveda. I have worked as a chef in many capacities, as a private chef at yoga retreats, the film industry, special events, and am also a chocolatier and tea master. I draw deeply from the poetics of life, and live to honor and celebrate these essences through my cooking.
