Jalaram Squires


Executive chef, herbalist

Keith is executive chef at the Dru Centre in Snowdonia in North Wales, and we're eagerly awaiting his forthcoming cook book, 'Cooking with Love'. Keith devises and oversees the culinary and nutritional delights at Snowdonia Mountain Lodge for Dru course and retreat participants throughout the year.

His passion for feeding people began at age 9, bringing his 'delicious' cakes, breads and pasties to school. His schoolmates joined in and soon they were swapping cakes and recipes during the lunch breaks, raiding mums’ cookery books in the evenings and growing vegetables on the school grounds.

Keith is a qualified herbalist, travelling widely, offering exclusive and engaging detox and nutrition and Ayurvedic retreats and courses throughout the UK and abroad.

His highly popular and hilarious blog, keithonfood.com, is packed with free resources.
