About Me

The Beginning...

Hi! I'm Danny, a lifelong vegetarian and the founder & CEO of Mindful Desserts. 

After I fully embraced a totally plant-based vegan lifestyle in 2018, I found the dessert options available sadly lacking for both vegetarians and vegans. And as a food-loving mother, I wanted to enjoy healthy, delicious desserts with my whole family, but was dismayed by the artificial additives and high sugar levels found in most vegan & vegetarian desserts. Even if I were willing to eat them myself (which, as it turns out, I wasn’t) there was no way I could contemplate feeding my young children such unnatural & unhealthy ingredients.

So I decided to take matters into my own hands. I was determined to share delicious vegan treats with my children, family & friends without worrying about high sugar content and artificial ingredients.

The Journey

I spent almost 2-years perfecting my unique plant-based recipes. As I shared my creations with other foodies around me, I realised that anyone with allergies or food intolerances was excluded from the simple pleasure of sharing delicious desserts. And for those who happened to manage an intolerance alongside a lifestyle choice, the options available were virtually non-existent. 

So I redoubled my efforts to create a range of desserts & cheesecakes that could be loved by anyone, removing all major allergens from my signature recipes, and instead, filling them with vibrant, luscious natural flavours.

The Approach

Inspired by the beauty & elegance of Japanese cuisine & culture, I am a (self-taught) dessert chef with an uncompromising passion to create delicious & nutritious desserts that can be enjoyed and savoured by everyone and anyone, regardless of their dietary preferences or restrictions.

My passion, drive, inspiration, values and vision are shared by the incredible team of people who work with me and I've personally trained each of them to craft exquisite desserts to the very highest standards.

Regardless of whether you choose to follow a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle, suffer from a food allergy or intolerance or just want to try something nutritious & delicious, Kambee is revolutionising the wat you think about desserts.

Many thanks and bon appetit!
