At our raw & cooked vegan Café & Academy in Ubud, in Bali, called Sayuri Healing Food, we offer many trainings & short courses. Our Academy & Café is a community for people to share, a safe space to be their authentic self, I’d like to invite you to be a part of this community online and hope to meet you in person sometime in the future, and for you to meet other like-minded people throughout this course.

I truly believe learning a healthy lifestyle & healthy eating, and activating your creativity have so much potential to serve as self-empowerment, to re-confirm how amazing you are, to shine your gift of who you truly are, to find the tool to be the best version of who you are. This is the main reason why we want to share this amazing tool! And, of course, simply want to share the joy of cooking and un-cooking. It brought me deep healing by preparing food for others and I want to share this magic with you!

If you want to eat healthier, take 1 step at a time. Start with what you can. Be gentle with yourself. As long as each choice is heading toward the healthier way, you are on the track. It is not about right or wrong.

It is important to listen to your heart. There s no only one single diet works for everyone. What is best for you is individual and your need & feelings always change just like seasons change.

Remember that the best nutrition is love and positive energy. That is the true nourishment of our souls.

Having said that, also, remember your choice o food affects your environment, the whole eco-system, and the whole system in the society, and choosing plant-based food to create harmony with nature and all other beings.

Being a plant-based chef, - whether you re home-cook, or professional, is a gift, you are the bridge between mother-nature and people, delivering the love of the earth, and people exchange the love through your food.

We hope this academy will deliver you the magical essence of cooking for yourself and others.

And we hope you will gain the confidence to integrate your knowledge into your daily life and gain enthusiasm to share your passion with the world as we do.

What our students say


To be completely honest, the taste of cheese is one of the things that I miss the most ever since I transitioned to a plant-based diet 10 months ago [...] 

True enough, the masterclass exceeded my expectations. Sayuri shared with us so many different recipes and techniques on how to make different kinds of amazing and delicious vegan cheese and incorporate them into different dishes [...] 

I truly believe that vegan cheese could help convince more people to switch to a plant-based diet and Sayuri’s 2-Day Vegan Cheese Masterclass would be the perfect way to introduce them to the magical world of vegan cheese. Thank you so much, chef Sayuri
