Sweets are too delicious to ban from your diet, but what if we could eat those treats and feel less guilty? What if we could eat a dessert and actually benefit in vitamins and minerals?
Melanie of Mettle + Grace is passionate about cooking food beneficial for you. Her cooking aims to recreate family favourite meals and dishes to incorporate dietary restrictions and improved health outcomes. In this class 'Veggies in Dessert’ you will learn how to create healthier versions of your old favourites. The desserts are dairy-free and gluten-free using a variety of ingredients; nuts, seeds, vegetables, whole grains, fats, spices, legumes and unrefined sugars. The menu includes crowd pleasers like Chocolate Kidney Bean Slice and Spiced Pumpkin Donuts. We will also whip up

CERES - Centre for Education and Research in Environmental Strategies, is an award winning, not-for-profit, sustainability centre located on 4.5 hectares on the Merri Creek in East Brunswick, Melbourne.
It is also a thriving community, an urban farm, Australia’s largest deliverer of environmental education, an event and conference venue and a place rich with social and cultural diversity. CERES is recognised as an international leader in community and environmental practice.
Built on a decommissioned rubbish tip that was once a bluestone quarry, today CERES is a vibrant eco-oasis. 350,000 people visit CERES each year. Many more engage with us through our Sustainable Schools program which takes sustainable education into schools across the state.
CERES’ green technology displays, buildings, education and training programs and social enterprises (CERES’ Organic Market, Café, Permaculture Nursery and Fair Food organics delivery) demonstrate food security, sustainable agriculture, energy efficiencies, renewables and water conservation in action.
CERES is a model for a future with sustainability, innovation and connectedness at its heart.
