This is a demonstration class about eating well prepared wholefoods, which are most appropriate to you and your needs. This will be a practical introduction to the principles of Macrobiotics and an opportunity to understand how these apply to you; in a very non prescriptive but useful way. We will make a range of delightful dishes, which can be offered together 'grazing style' for those you feed to choose the ones that best suit their needs and likes.
There will be simple to make recipes for savoury and sweet simmered, steamed, fried, grilled, fermented and raw dishes, to accommodate the needs of omnivores and the rest. We will learn the value of ferments and seaweeds and how to prepare the most digestible beans, grains, animal foods, vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds.

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.
