Hunter Valley Health and Vitality cooking classes with Simone 26-28 September

shutterstock_203669269The 26/28 September Hunter Valley weekend will be packed with the nutritional why and how to easily bring whole-food cooking into your daily life-style.

Why not get a few friends together and head to the Hunter Valley?  

So many people are confused these days about what to eat. The class will be full of lots of nutritional information along with the reasons to cook dishes certain ways, to maximise their nutritional value along with having them taste delicious.

The class is limited to a maximum of 12 people so that everyone gets plenty of individual attention and so there is enough time to answer all the nutrition questions that come up in a class such as this. By the end of the weekend, not only will you be clearer on what to eat and how to prepare it, you will have had lots of fun on the road to learning.

  • Real Chai with all its many spices, which Simone will elaborate on all their wonderful medicinal properties.
  • Homemade coconut yogurt, kefir, ghee, real stock and activated nuts. Simone will explain why all these foods are getting so much attention by the nutritional gurus.
  • Winter root vegetable soup, coriander fish and chocolate brownie dessert.
  • And of course, where ever there is an opportunity to add a splash of wine to a recipe, out of respect to the local wine growers; we will do our best to honour them!
