Our aim is to teach basic cooking skills and impart knowledge of healthy eating to anyone that wants to be more confident in the kitchen. This also includes nannies, au pairs, domestic workers or even gap year, students.

Our recipes are carefully chosen specifically for families and are child-friendly. The recipes we use are mostly gluten and refined sugar-free and full of fruit and veggies (but we try to be discreet by hiding them from fussy eaters) We donít compromise on taste and use a lot of fresh herbs and spices.

What is included in the price?
Meal planner
Recipe booklets
Relaxed lunch
Certificate

ABUNDANCE, our first food & sustainability workshop! We want to bring sustainability into the kitchen, and encourage you to be a more conscious consumer, by cooking in a way that is healthier for you and our planet.
Our first workshop is all about beautiful veggie-inspired abundance bowls, and how eating more vegetables and plants is a great way to care for ourselves, and for our planet.
We'll be sharing some delicious, seasonal abundance bowl recipes and ideas, to inspire you. It'll be an opportunity to spend some time with other sustainably-minded people, cooking and eating lunch together, and growing our knowledge as aspiring eco warriors! Tell a friend.

I have been dreaming of a community of foodies coming together once a month.

I would love to have a bigger impact, and building lasting relationships around our joint passion for food.
I have been craving more connection and I would love to have more discussions about food, cooking and eating it, sharing ideas, discussing recipe books, the newest diet trends, great places to eat, and the newest kitchen gadgets and also what to make when the inlaws come over for Christmas. Maybe this idea will flourish or it will nose dive but I am putting it out there. We will meet once a month on a Friday morning and we will skip the months where there are endless holidays.

Your commitment will be to attend every get-together and if you can not come you will get someone in your place so the group is always full. You can also pay monthly no yearly feas.

Every month's menu will be a surprise, ranging from fancy entertaining recipes to warming and comforting recipes for the winter months. I am more on the practical and healthy side so teaching you to meal prep, setting a rustic table on a budget will trump fancy meals you will only make occasionally. But there will always be wine:)

I will create an exclusive whats up group where we could ask foodie questions, give last minute arrangements or if you can't come you can swap with a sister who wants to join instead.

If this works, it might grow into a few groups, but let's just see if we can get 12 ladies together. Email me if you want to join our group. Tell a friend.
