In an effort to post more often, I’m reducing the size of my posts so that I can write them more quickly and hopefully share some more of my experiences with you.  So here goes :

I love trying new dining experiences, and stumbled on this one, slightly by accident whilst writing an article for FoodeMagdxb. I love ‘accidental finds’ and sometimes I’m a believer that things happen for a reason – anyway, whilst chatting to Chef Russell at Galeries Lafayette, he mentioned that Chef Adrian had lost a lot of weight by following a 30 day challenge set to him by Chef Hayley Mac from BeStro – essentially Chef Adrian followed a raw, vegan, dairy, gluten and sugar free meal plan which had been set for him by Chef Hayley.  This was a complete U turn in Adrian’s usual eating plans, and resulted in a staggering loss of 14kgs in a month !! Bravo Adrian and Hayley.

Interested to know more I went to meet Hayley at BeStro which is situated in Lafayette Gourmet.  Hayley is passionate about eating healthy, super clean and raw food, and knows how to pack taste into dishes without them being boring or bland, they look amazingly beautiful too.  She’s a lady who loves her gadgets, and uses careful and clever tecnhiques to pack taste and texture into everything that’s made at BeStro.  You can read more about here approach here :

On a return visit to Bestro I dined on these two dishes which blew me away both visually and taste wise 🙂


If you are interested to know more, check out her website or take a visit, I promise you that Chef Hayley and her team, will tempt you into trying something decadently delicious, munchingly moreish, tantilisingly tasty, and so good you’ll be adding it to your list of places to go back for more.

BeStro also sell superfoods, healthy cooking gadgets and Boon Coffee.

PS – check out their raw, dairy free, sugar free, vegan smoothies too – Hayley and the team make everything from scratch including the No Milk Mylk !!

Psst : Hayley has just launched a Cancer Club – The Cancer Club is being run in memory of Claire Stokes. A lady who loved to chat! Claire found it frustrating that there was nowhere she could go and blow off steam and talk opening and honestly about how she was feeling, with people that felt the same.

The Cancer Club is not a charity, it is a group where people who are currently living with Cancer can meet and share. A place where you can make friends with people that know what you are going through.

Raw Vegan Chef Hayley Mac will also be on hand to answer any healthy food preparation related questions.
