A PRIVATE SENSORY RETREAT WITH CHEF MATTHEW KENNEY AND RAINBEAU MARS

Wellness author and herbalist to the stars Rainbeau Mars opened her Feng Shui Venice home on Monday for an evening of wellness and a plant-based five-course menu from internationally acclaimed vegan chef and Mar Vista resident Matthew Kenney. And it all kicked off with dessert — frozen strawberry guava with the essence of coconut and kaffir lime.



“A few small bites of dessert before you start the meal aids in digestion and absorption of vitamins and nutrients,” Mars told the intimate group after a cleansing sound bath that included Chinese medicine expert Dr. Mao Shing Ni, as well as actress and realtor Leslie Bega. “A little sweetness to start out will help digest the proteins before they start to ferment and cause digestive issues. Matthew has taken the herbs and plants gathered from my urban garden and transformed them into art for the body and mind. By combining the earth, the water, the fire and the air, we can reclaim the micronutrients from the colors out of the garden.”
