AYATANA je nov center dobrega počutja, ki svojo zgodbo piše na področju predajanja znanja o veganski in presni kulinariki.
AYATANA je doma v osrčju idilične gorenjske vasice Lesce, kjer na družinskem posestvu lastnice in ustanoviteljice Aleksandre stoji prenovljen skedenj iz leta 1614. Prav v skednju je svoj dom našla AYATANA - dom kreativnih okusov, ki svoj navdih črpajo iz zakladnice veganskih in presnih receptov. Od decembra 2016 so v AYATANI na voljo inovativne delavnice in drugi fini dogodki. Aleksandra, nosilka mednarodnega certifikata priznane veganske kulinarične inštitucije Matthew Kenney Culinary Academy, bdi nad kakovostjo in inovativnostjo predajanja znanja na področju priprave svežih, okusnih in raznovrstnih jedi rastlinskega izvora. AYATANA je prostor druženja in ustvarjanja. Ime AYATANA izhaja iz starodavnega jezika sanskrt in med drugim pomeni svetišče, prostor za počitek in skedenj.
