Chef Lisa began her culinary journey by first of all being a mother of 2 at a young age.
She then attended a Michio Kushi Institute of Shiatzu and Macrobiotic cooking in Kiental Switzerland. This was the foundation for Health and Healing through food.
After meeting her French Husband 26 years ago, together they altered the Flavors and textures of the "Healthy" foods with herbs, spices and....love to create dishes that are not only "Nutritious", but absolutely "Delicious"!
YES, you can have your cake and eat it too!
Bean Me Up moved across town to a premises that consisted of a 16 room guest house, boutique, stage and room for 120 seat restaurant. A lot of talent performed on that stage! Lisa and her staff of 22, became well known to locals and travelers from around the world.
She became a permanent member of the Vegetarian Society local chapter and from there was a speaker for the "World Vegetarian Congress".

Realizing that there was a lack of eateries offering great tasting food that was healthy, Lisa decided to open a small sandwich shop to coincide with the Soy factory they were already running. The production consisted of Tofu, Tempeh and Soymilk., so they could inform and instruct people how to cook with these items. (This was before GMO crops). Due to the fact that they were alone making these products in the region, Lisa Camps is mentioned in the "Book of Soy in South Asia", which can be viewed online.
The sandwich shop (original Bean Me Up), became the talk of the town and was soon too small to accomodate the crowds.
All of these events happened in South Asia, on a travelers trail called Goa where they lived for approximatley 30 years. Throughout that time, they traveled to my parts of the world and learned about other cultures such as traditions, languages, arts and Lisa's favorite.....recipies!
