How do you balance the goal of a healthier nutritional diet with the cravings for munchies and snacks? Try eating healthier snacks. Slow Food Hong Kong and the Fringe Club is presenting a special Saturday afternoon presentation that not only addresses the issue, but showcases two innovative Hong Kong-based experts making a difference with healthy, alternative snacks.

Headlining the fun and casual discussion are gourmet seed cracker manufacturer Monica Bharwani of Divine Indulgence by Monica, and artisan plant-based chef and ‘cheezanista’ Amy Elkhoury of Nuteese.

Both women started experimenting in food and cooking, wanting to make healthier choices for themselves and their families. Gradually, their efforts became a passion as interest and demand in their homemade alternative treats grew organically to become small businesses. Their stories are fascinating and inspiring, and their original and inventive products break new ground in Hong Kong, offering health-conscious consumers a real alternative.

Launched only two years ago, Divine Indulgence by Monica started with Monica Bharwani making healthy but tasty gourmet snacks for friends and her children. As interest grew, she wanted to share her love for baking with a healthy component by focusing on nuts- and seeds-based crackers and snacks.

Nuteese founder Amy Elkhoury is a plant-based chef who previously worked in multimedia and design. She started looking for more balance in her life by becoming a yoga teacher almost 20 years ago. After moving to Asia, she began studied with raw food and plant-based chef Matthew Kenney and launched Nuteese in 2020 to be the only person in Hong Kong creating vegan cheese using activated nuts that are fermented, seasoned and aged.
