Workshops

Workshops in 2020

For almost 10 years, I’ve been experimenting with fermentation, recipe development and growing my own food. I found in clinic that my clients, while motivated to improve their health, often lacked knowledge about how to start incorporating new foods and recipes into their diets.

As part of working holistically I help you learn how to use the foods I advise. So, workshops were the result! Join us and you’ll learn the practicalities of fermenting, cooking and food prep. Includes refreshments, equipment and something to take home with you. More details below.

Questions? Email me at info@eatlivelovefood.com or chat with us on social media @eatlivelovefood.
