Auroville Retreat and KOFPU bring you a 4-module course on Vegan Raw Food preparation, an art of conscious nourishment. Anandi will guide you in real time, in the preparation of delicious and healthy dishes for you to enjoy.
Anandi started KOFPU (Kottakarai Organic Food Processing Unit) in Auroville over three decades ago, with the aim of promoting organic farming and healthy eating habits. Her approach, carried by enthusiasm, conviction and research, embraces traditional and innovative, eastern and western methods of preserving food in healthy and eco-friendly ways.
Anandi teaches Food Processing and Health Food preparation as livelihood options for rural community members. After training at Spiritual Raw Food in Arizona, she has been following her passion to promote the raw food vegan diet through workshops and catering. She heads the first Auroville Raw Food Center where visitors can see and experience the making of raw foods.
