Tanita de Ruijt is a Dutch native with a Spanish upbringing and British education – a third culture kid with a degree in European Studies and passion for preserving traditional food wisdom. Her simple approach to health and wellbeing is predominantly inspired by her eclectic upbringing, and travels throughout Southeast Asia. She has contributed recipes to cookbooks such as Eat Right by Nick Barnard, and 26 Grains by Alex Hely-Hutchinson. Tanita became enamored with the volcanic islands of Indonesia a few years ago, and quickly became hooked on turmeric tonic. Soon after returning, she began making the golden liquid, from her flat in London. By 25, she founded her own tonics business, known as the Jamu Kitchen. This kitchen embodies a refreshing new attitude towards health foods, embracing ancient methods of eating. Her health-boosting tonics bring inspiration from ancient food wisdom and Asian cultures to her London customers.
