Food by Holly Davis

Vendor since 2013


Holly is an inspiring wholefood chef and educator. Born in London, Holly cut her teeth as a chef at Food For Thought in Covent Garden. She moved to Sydney in 1982 where she founded Manna, a restaurant inspired by her interest in Macrobiotic philosophy. She then co-founded Sydney’s Iku Wholefoods in 1985.                 

In her current business Food By Holly Davis she aims to seduce people to better ways of thinking about, sourcing, preparing, and eating balanced wholefood meals, by teaching them to make or feeding them, irresistibly delicious foods, that happen to be good for them.                 

Holly’s been a long time champion for the attainment of great health through the use of sustainable organic wholefoods; appropriate to the season, tailored to the needs of the consumer. Her cooking style uses traditional ingredients and embraces the dietary principles practiced by societies prior to industrialised food production. {Food industrialisation}                   

She has also been intentionally fermenting food and drinks to deliciousness for over four decades. Holly’s vision ‘to feed people love’ is expressed in her inspiring and informative cookery classes, her talks, through her articles and when she is catering or food coaching for private or commercial clients.                  

Her range of fermented vegetables, books and live or dried starter cultures are available at Northside Produce market and Carriageworks Farmers Market the first and third Saturday of the month
