I am Dewi, a full time foodie !
First thing I read about when travelling is the local food I will experience.
I am a foodie at heart and I believe that foreign culture also travels through my plate. Of all the destinations I have visited, India has become my very favourite place to explore and rejuvenate. Everytime I go I leave a peace of my heart behind and I bring home lots of culinary inspirations.
I will never forget the day I discovered popped water lily seeds. I immediately knew I had found something rare & nutritious that I had to bring home and share with my friends and family.
That day was the ultimate reward for a passionate "food explorer".
OH LILY ! IS THE CREATION OF TWO FOODIE FRENCH SISTERS, WITH A PASSION TO SHARE THEIR ASPIRATION FOR A HEALTH AND ENVIRONMENTALLY CONSCIOUS LIFESTYLE.
AND THEIR SECRET INGREDIENT IS LOVE !
"Those two are obsessed with food!" Say our loved ones about us and we canít argue with that!
The kitchen is where we spend most of our time, going crazy cooking food inspired by our french and asian roots.
We make it a priority for every meal to be good and make us feel good. We believe what we eat should nourish our body, mind & soul.
So why should it be diffrent when it comes to snacks??
During a trip to India we rediscovered the power of water lily seeds, which were highly known in Ayurveda for their nutritional powers. We were immediatly seduced by their crunchy texture and started to imagine recipes around. Oh Lily! Was born.
I am Gov, the little sister and the chef !
Time runs by when I am in a kitchen experimenting to please the palate of my friends and family. A few years back I travelled and worked in India and Indonesia before returning home my pockets filled with culinary ideas and asian spices.
Dewi says that was the beginning of my journey as a "food artist". That is usually when I start blushing... Though I must admit I have simply loved those years cooking fusion vegetarian & Satvik food for yoga retreats on the french Riviera!
It was then only natural to join my older sister on a challenge to come up with something innovative and gourmet using popped water lily seeds she had brought back from India.
