Food by Holly Davis

Vendor since 2013

I am a Sydney based, chef, author and educator with a passion for the freshest, most locally grown, biodynamic, and organic produce. I cook respecting the traditions that help to maximise nutrient values and digestibility of the dishes made. I have been doing so since I co founded Iku Wholefoods in 1985

Lacto-fermentation is an art I adore, practice and love to teach. I believe that cooking is an alchemic art form, not an exact science. I made my first batch of pickles at the age of 15 which has provided me with over 40 years of experience to impart. 

I run wholefood cooking classes in Australia and the UK. My aim is always to educate and inspire people to eat in accordance with their needs and the season. I am also a caterer and work as a food coach with individuals looking to make dietary changes.

Whenever I am presenting, teaching, catering or working as a private chef, I am always an impassioned speaker on the benefits of sustainable whole food and organic and biodynamic farming practises.
