In 2016, Jasmine launched East by West London, a pop-up cafe in Mayfair, to express the Ayurvedic holistic health principles that she learnt on her travels to India and Sri Lanka. The success of this pioneering Mayfair cafe has culminated in a cookbook with 130 delicious recipes inspired by Jasmine's love of Ayurveda, the ancient Indian 'Science of Life’.  In a nutshell, EAST BY WEST is for anyone with a passion for eating well, feeling great (and having dessert at lunchtime).

Championing the philosophy of eating to nourish, sustain and repair, Jasmine's modern look at a 5,000 year-old holistic concept fuses signature tastes of the East with the best of British food. Combining the indulgent, confident flavours and ancient wisdom of the East from Golden Milk to Pakti Bowls, there are flavoursome, nutritious dishes to suit every taste.

Ayurveda focuses on eating high quality cooked food in a relaxed environment, allowing the body and mind to appreciate the goodness that the food provides to encourage us to slow down in a fast paced world.
