Recipe for Success Down Under
by Acote Yahvinah Eshet Darah
CFF Darah Ben Yisrael and his esha Yahvinah have within a year of returning to Australia from their 8 month spiritual soujourn to Israel and the Chicago extension, have established a catering company which is hailed as one of the most innovative & delicious food businesses in Melbourne, which boasts over 40 vegetarian restaurants (more than the rest of Australia combined).
Most of their dishes have been inspired by the tradiitonal Soul Vegetarian fare, but they have also strategically developed themselves with a market difference by offering a range of things that are exclusively not available in Australia, including over 20 flavours of the acclaimed tofu cheesecake, which has been featured in several magazines, and the standardisation of a gluten free menu which is to be on the way soon. They have also developed a user-friendly website to allow potential supporters to acces them easily from all around the world.
The pair have conducted classes, cooking demos, raw food retreats, and been interveiwed by several newspapers and national radio stations, with Darah becoming recognised in the Aboriginal community as a man who emphasises the health of his people, and remaining a testament that Yah Khai in this otherwise Euro-Gentile continent.
The most recent accomlishment, is their ascent to the finals of the Nescafe Big Break competition, which has already provided AU$15,000 (approx $11,000 US) to Soulveg Australia, and they still have an opprotunity to take an additional AU$85,000, which would provide them with the financial backing needed to open a full service Soulveg Resturant in Melbourne. This all goes to show, as long as their are 2 or more gathered in His name, Yah is with us.
