Laura Lamar grew up eating quick and cheap food in the age of microwaves. This lack of epicurean exposure sent her on a quest for simple, healthy and savory foods. Working as a personal trainer/chef it became evident that people had little if any connection to food. She strives to deconstruct the franken foods of the past and create a mode of fueling both the individual and the community simultaneously through food.
An environmentalist at heart she became determined to acquire and prepare foods in a way that was good for the mind, body, and spirit. Hence the name Karma which denotes that the meals shared are beneficial to the eater, the environment and the local economy. As a chef at Farm to Freezer York, she built relationships while sourcing local ingredients that provided revenue for small businesses and farmers. This union between local resources transfers to the table. She hopes to inspire others to support the community by dining on local faire.
