I began my cooking career in a medical center as an apprentice chef along with food service management training at a local community college. I furthered my culinary education at the Cordon Bleu in London, UK. I have managed and cooked worldwide in venues ranging from haute cruise to logging camps, cruise ships, universities, health care facilities, pubs, a cafe serving the homeless and my own fine dining restaurant and country inn. I bring this diversity to your event at Trout Lake Abbey. I am looking forward to serving you as your Tenzo (cook). I see my service to your group as a spiritual practice. Contact the Abbey directly for Bob’s services.

Alma Tierra Catering
For the past 25+ years, I have been in service through food. I have cooked for many popular teachers and quite diverse audiences and settings of all sizes. I specialize in meeting a wide spectrum of needs within a group of vegetarian/vegan/raw to more conventional fare. I place a strong emphasis on Organic, Local and Free Range choices. The intentionality I bring to my service is to prepare delicious, healthy and nutritious foods in a peaceful and loving manner… to nourish more than just the physical body.

In 2010, I brought to life my own passion for wellness by founding Eatin’ Alive, a vibrant food company focused on plant-based grab-and-go products. Our products have found success through wholesale grocery and farmers’ markets sales. In tandem with running Eatin’ Alive, I also launched my career as a personal chef, nutrition consultant, international retreat caterer, and speaker. Over the past seven years, I’ve helped clients clean out their pantries, nourished yogis on a retreat from beachside to mountain-top, and worked with individuals to customize dietary lifestyles for each unique body and vision.
