What is Yumcore?

#Yumcore was a term/hashtag I coined to describe seriously delicious food that tastes great and feels good to your core. I consider the core of my self a vegan spiritual punk activist on the inside with an Egyptian Muslim Lawyer facade on the outside.

Yumcore is the hardcore Vegan punk of the charcuterie tray of life.

I’ve always been an intense, standout character. I try to make my food with a similarly unique character, and ask:
How can I make this taste better with simple ingredients?
How can I make your mouth drool?
How can I recreate my favorite dishes using only vegan and ethically sourced ingredients?

My goals are to introduce you to my 100% Plant-Based Meal Plans, Cooking Classes, Catering & Vegan Health Coaching. 

I want to excite all of the taste buds, and Umami your Mama.

Yumcore is so good, it’s Glitter Good!

When food makes you feel all shiny and shimmery on the inside, there’s no better feeling.

I can’t think of any other food group on earth that can do that besides plant based foods.

The Birth of Yumcore

The term #Yumcore was used on May 31, 2014 when I first began documenting my gluten-free and vegan delicacies online. 
Yumcore, LLC officially started as a business in 2018 when I was living in Hawaii and finding a lack of good vegan options. On the Big Island, there were a few places with vegan options but they were just Okay, made with processed ingredients, and sometimes insanely overpriced. I would get upset when we went out to eat and spent a ton of money on vegan food made with the same ingredients from Costco that I already had at home, but I knew how to make it taste better. There also weren’t any vegan caterers for events and I was getting requests from friends and businesses to make food for their parties or weddings. Then I would also deliver vegan meals around town. I’ve always loved feeding people, and if they’re happy then I’m happy. Food is love.
