Lishka Anderson

Lishka Anderson

Lishka is our 2.0 co-founder and head of sales and distribution at the Kind Kitchen. She studied Human Movement Science, at Nelson Mandela University and Consumer Science, Food and Nutrition through Unisa.

Her love for all things nutritious and comforting lead to a career as front of house manager for Cape Town's most renowned bakery. Jason Bakery.

Thanks to Covid-19 lockdown restrictions, job losses and more, Lishka found herself in an in-depth conversation with Jay from the Kind Kitchen. Which of course lead to all things vegan, yoga and how to save the planet. Blah blah blah. Now she's on our side. The end!


Jason McNamara

Jason is our 1.0 co-founder and vegan head chef at the Kind Kitchen. He was drawn to a vegan lifestyle through the yogic teachings and animal rights advocacy expressed by the Jivamukti Yoga method founded by Sharon Gannon and David Life.

In 2013, he studied at the Natural Epicurean Academy of Culinary Arts in Austin, Texas and has gone on to create recipes for global brands like LiveKindly and privately chef for Die Antwoord and Ed Sheraan. Actually Ninja and Yolandi gave Jay his first private chef'n gig when he was just a wee baby.

All this aside! Jay's greatest creation and reason for being vegan, other than his love for animals, the planet and his health of course, is his son and greatest food critic Flynn.
