Classes & Events

I offer classes, dinners, and talks in and around Dunedin, as well as periodically around New Zealand.
The classes cover all aspects of a Plant-based diet, from sprouting and salads to bean cooking, stocking the pantry shopping instructions and how to run an Eco-Kitchen. The classes include a cooking demonstration, discussion and sharing of knowledge and of course - eating!
