I run a variety of programs throughout the year, and they include (but are not limited to)
Wholefood From The Ground Up
NOURISHING WISDOMS | KNOW HOW | RECIPES
This course runs over 20 hours, and most usually as a 4 day intensive. A wholefood kitchen is a living, breathing space where we translate intent and knowledge into food that can heal, nourish and delight. This is a four day workshop, with a focus on understanding the foundations of healthy food and wholesome eating – the WHY something is good and most importantly, the KNOW HOW to use it. During our time together I cover the following, and provide you with a broad range of new recipes for the warmer weather. Your questions are all welcome.
- What makes the food we eat healthy?
- What makes the way we eat wholesome, healthy, ethical and sustainable ?
- Understanding the food we eat Fats, Carbohydrates and Proteins
- Understanding dairy and gluten intolerance
- Using natures seeds – including whole grains and legumes – so they are optimally digestible and able to nourish.
- Foods from the sea, such as seaweeds, salt and fish
- The benefits of animal bone and vegetarian stocks
- Wholesome sweetness
Centred around these basics we learn how to incorporate whole and nutrient dense ingredients into everyday cooking, whilst building a whole and natural foods pantry.
Though this course is LARGELY vegetarian, wheat and dairy free, some organic butter and organic animal bones (stock) are used.
Single Session Classes
These are usually seasonally based or provide the opportunity to cover a specific area. Seasonal classes have included:
- Meals for Everyday and Surviving the Busy Days
- Nourishing Young Children
- Preserving the Harvest – Chutneys, Pickles & Sauces
- Wholesome Baking and Natural Sweeteners
Each class is about 3 1/2 hours and includes generous tastings, and class notes.
Individual/Group Private Classes
Sometimes, a private class is the best option to respond directly to your individual needs and /or restrictions, with one – on – one tuition. A class is a 4 hours hands -on session, but best of all you get to take home what we cook! Like all my classes notes are supplied. Please email me if you would like to chat about this earlier. Contact me for more details, and let’s chat.
Group classes can also be arranged and again, content and structure can be specific to the group’s needs. Contact me for more details, and let’s chat.
Professional Wholefood Training Classes
If you would like to learn more or are keen to develop your skills, I can tailor a 1 – 4 week intensive in wholefood cooking or wholesome baking to suit your needs. Please contact me to discuss. Contact me for more details, and let’s chat.
