Jude Blereau is coming to Sydney, to teach with me this November

Author, wholefood educator, wise woman and dear friend Jude Blereau, of Wholefood Cooking and I share a long wholefood history in Australia. Jude lives and works in Perth WA and whilst, I am often in Perth to teach public classes and The Chefs Training program we run there, Jude is rarely available to come to teach in Sydney. I am thrilled to say though, that in early November we are joining forces here. We are offering a range of delicious, informative, wholesome wholefood classes and what we intend to be, an empowering seminar; to assist you in creating your every day wholefood home. We will be teaching all these ‘know how’ classes and the seminar together. While Jude offers the more nitty gritty details and nutritional science, I aim to connect you with your ‘I can do that’ intuition. We cross over in most areas but have differing passions in the kitchen. Whilst we can both answer your questions, you might go to Jude for all questions sweet and how to cater for intolerances and come to me, with your questions about lacto fermentation, sourdough, meat and fish queries.

Our aim in this program is to share with you our combined experience and nourishing wisdoms, gained over our thirty years pioneering the wholefood industry in Australia. We would like you to leave these events inspired with information and practical tools that will enable you to carve a clear and achievable wholefood path, amidst the current plethora of confusing food and dietary information. Jude and I have walked different paths to arrive at a very similar place, which, we hope gives you the opportunity to get a broader perspective on the topics we have chosen.

We share a vision, to effect change in how we as a society grow, produce, prepare and eat food. As part of this vision we run the Whole and Natural Foods Chef Training Program, a 3 month in depth program that covers, the fundamentals of nourishment, healthy and wholesome eating; including how we grow food and prepare it. The next program will be August 2016. For further details or a prospectus for this exciting program click here.
