As children, my brother and I were often given half an avocado to snack on. Mum would drizzle a little vinegar onto each half, hand us a spoon, then sit us outside on the steps and leave us to to the important business of avocado devouring. Happy days. I’m still a massive fan of avocados, […]
Hey! Sydney! Yes, I’m canvassing you again. I’m doing another workshop you see. Next week! Once again, we’ll be using the wonderful big hall in the Surry Hills Neighbourhood Centre (same as we used for the gluten/grain-free workshop). However, rather than a weekend session, next week’s workshop will run on Tuesday evening. Perfect for after work. […]

While there are plenty of things to be done when you actually get sick, keeping yourself in tip-top shape is the best idea – and that way avoid falling […]
I’ve talked before about the health benefits of nuts. They are the best – the best! – for snacks or an additional ingredient in salads and baking. Did you know you can maximise their benefit by soaking nuts before eating? Doing so will break down enzyme inhibitors found in raw nuts that can make digestion difficult. Soaking […]
It’s starting to cool down! Lovely layering is back in town! That’s right my friends: it is Autumn. What does that mean for our plates? Well, plenty of delicious leaves and colourful fruits – not so much as you find in abundant summer, but still enough to satisfy a broad palate. Vitamin C rich foods […]
