How Darlin’ Dal Started

This is how the dalbar started,a whisper inside of me.”Start a dalbar Joey,you love an adore Ayurveda,have cooked dal for 30 years & maybe it could work ”
3years later with no advertising just word of mouth & community,my dals are adored by many,all walks of life,all ages.
I have eaten Hare Krishna food since my teens & discovered Ayurveda in my early 20s whilst studying nursing.I knew the food rocked for many reasons,for me in my 20s,it was the meatless simplicity yet amazing tastes created using spice.I had very successful ayurveda dinner parties using only two cast iron pots.I had come from a meat & three veg family.
My journey to get me here has been pretty rad I must say though not easy & lots I have learnt & continue to learn.My 50 metre cliff fall off Marino Rocks 1993
{ there was no railing}was a game changer.Tell you more about that in another chapter as this is where I knew I had tapped into something magical & mysterious.
Back to the dalbar….
I choose sustainability with compostable containers & after implementing organics into Speros famous Foodlands I knew my dals were always going to be organic.I have the contacts & the background to make this work.
After opening the doors in March 2016 with the book Big Magic at my side prior & still today,I trusted.In Ayurveda I had learnt three words warmth,precision,patience.Everything you want to create needs to come from the place of your heart,be precise & have patience as it will come.
It has arrived & I am so so grateful & happy to be sharing this journey with you & look forward to sharing more secrets of what I think has been a pretty rad ride so far for me.

Enjoy this weeks dals you have ordered.Hope to meet & see you instore soon.
