In todays show I have the pleasure of interviewing Lee Dares, Owner of Lee’s Ghee. Ghee is a staple food in countries all over South Asia. Lee’s Ghee specializes in hand crafted, organic ghee in a variety of natural flavours inspired by Ayurveda. Lee’s Ghee is a fantastic addition to every chef, health nut and foodie’s pantry.
Lee Dares runs the daily operations of an artisan ghee company specializing in organic, hand-crafted clarified butter products. Lee is also a former model turned organic farmer turned artisan. As a model, Lee was traveling solo most of the time, she had to learn how to cook simple, healthy meals on a budget. As a result, Lee developed a deep interest in nutrition which later led to an interest in, yoga and Ayurveda, the sister science and lifestyle of yoga. Ghee is an essential ingredient in Ayurvedic cooking, and Lee began using it in recipes and fell in love with its rich, nutty taste. Realizing there wasn’t a good, local source of organic ghee available, Lee decided to quit modeling and devote herself to the pursuit of sharing organic, local ghee with her community. She can safely say that she would rather bike to the farmer’s market than walk down the runway any day.
