spring cooking class

We had a spring cooking class yesterday in brunswick. What a wonderful way to spend one afternoon, meeting new people, creating meals together and enjoying it together.
It is such a basic simple pleasure but I don’t get to do it often enough. Even just sitting down to eat and really taking the time to chew, tasting the flavours and enjoying every mouthful. Also having the time to think about how that meal has effected you physically and mentally. Always feeling like you should be doing something more important or get to somewhere you have to be.
It it also a good opportunity to motivate ourselves to keep believing yourself as well as learning and growing.

thanks you to those, who came to share their time with me and hope to see you soon!

Our menu yesterday was

vegetable bake with coconut millet and mung bean topping
stringy root vegetable salad with thick almond and curry dressing
Spring green salad with sweet and sour apple dressing
and of course a dessert to finish off with

raw chocolate mousse cake

everyone got the recipes for dishes we created and I think the first think they will be making will be the mousse cake :-)

I am still planning a lunch or dinner (for hopefully this year, before it gets too hot...) and maybe we should do dessert cooking class.....???


  1. The raw avocado chocolate mousse cake was incredible. I could eat that for breakfast, lunch and dinner...!
