Jason Vale and Trish Tucker-May (Passion 4 Juice©) collaborated and made this recipe together many moons ago at the fresh festival. We called it the Passion 4 Juice master. Now in his top selling books it is referred to as HIS passion 4 juice. I have a registered trade mark for my business name and logo. So yes it is a breach of that. I have spoken to Jason about it and he has agreed to make reference to the collaboration. This one may have slipped under his radar. Or perhaps it is deliberate. Anyway I will take it as a positive testimonial, continue to do what I do and focus on the abundant energy juicing provides us in our daily lives.
I will focus on the many thousands of festival goers each year that benefit from drinking our juice. Like the guy who came to us at Womad and ordered the detox special in the pouring rain. He came everyday this year and last year. He told me trying my juices has changed his life. The juice master is inspiring people and so am I.
So even though when I beat Jason in the great international smoothie making challenge, and he turned to me at the end and said "just remember Trish Tucker, there is only one juice master" I still think there is plenty of room for the Juice Queen and for Passion 4 Juice©. 15 years of trading at festivals, events, conferences and retreats in 4 countries tells me that we are here for the long haul. I am an ethical trader, I reference my material or I create my own. I create my own recipes and if I make other peoples, love them and post them, I will give them credit. A similar thing has recently happened to Jo Whitton of @Quirky Cooking (awesome recipes, wonderfully inspiring, hard working lady) I guess I feel I have made it in a way, if I am good enough to take ideas from I must have truly made it in the world of business.
