Three Sixty Conversations with Danae Dade the joy of analogue connection
Welcome to episode 24 where I am talking to Danae Dade. Danae is a vegan baker and caterer her food is life giving, from the divine flavours to the ingredients which sometimes come from her garden. Danae’s food is a literal extension of her magnetic personality. In this podcast episode we talk about Danae’s mission to honour our planet and increase our health one plate at a time.
In 2016 Danae was made redundant from her career in fashion and decided to use this opportunity to focus on vegan baking full time rather than pursue a career when her passion was waning.
Danae’s love for baking led her to consider how nourishing, planet friendly, tasty food was a source of joy. Danae decided that she would share this joy by creating supper clubs for people that like good hearty food and genuine conversations #nosmalltalk. Danae is keen to use digital mediums to create analogue experiences because the magic is in real life connection.
As food became Danae’s happy place she realised that food preparation and eating a plant based diet were positively impacting her mental health and wellbeing. Danae shares how meditation and mindfulness assist her to move like water flowing and navigating her way through and around obstacles rather than crashing against them.
During this chat we talk about choosing living and learning over perfection as perfection is a thin veil for not doing anything!
Danae also touches on the untimely death of her twin brother, I thought I should mention this for anyone that may be having a tricky time dealing with a loss.
