Cade McConnell is a poet, writer and plant-based cook based in Byron Bay. Raised in a small coastal town on Worimi Country, his upbringing seeded a deep appreciation for the wild aliveness of the Australian land and sea.
His travels to the Indian subcontinent gifted him a connection to yoga and vipassana meditation, which have become dedicated practices in his life whilst his love for poetry has become a form of healing therapy. Cade’s approach to plant-based cooking is an extension of his practice, where food is an opportunity for connection and presence – with ourselves, each other and the earth.
Through his offerings he hopes to inspire others to relate to life with reverence, as part of a collective contribution to a more peaceful and harmonious world.
