The Resilient Journey of Canava : A Taste of Passion and Perseverance
In the bustling heart of Atlanta, a culinary tale began to unfold in 1998. Monique Sharp, a passionate vegan chef, embarked on a mission to bring delicious and nutritious vegan meals to the local community. With a car packed with her freshly prepared dishes, she personally delivered lunches to local businesses, from hair salons to spas. Monique wasn’t just a chef; she was the heart and soul of her venture, playing the role of both the cook and the delivery service.
As word spread about her delectable vegan creations, Monique’s clientele expanded. Soon, she was catering for grand weddings, lively parties, and even some of the city’s renowned singers and rap artists. The dream of taking her food to the streets of Atlanta began to take shape in her mind. In 2010, with hopes high and a vision clear, Monique launched a Crowd Fund campaign for the “Love Burger Express Food Truck.” But sometimes, dreams take detours. Despite her best efforts, she couldn’t reach her financial goal.
For a while, Monique stepped away from her culinary dream. Doubt crept in, and she decided to hang up her apron in 2013. But the fire of passion, once ignited, is hard to extinguish. Six years later, with renewed vigor and a deeper understanding of her mission, Monique returned to the culinary world.
Today, Canava stands as a testament to Monique’s resilience and dedication. With a focus on organic, locally farmed, gluten-free, and vegan dishes, Monique is not just serving food; she’s offering a lifestyle. Every dish is a labor of love, a blend of her past experiences and her renewed passion.
It’s a story of perseverance, of believing in oneself, and of the transformative power of food. We invite you to be a part of this journey, to taste the love and dedication in every bite, and to join Monique in celebrating a healthier, optimum life.
