Lebanese cuisine, a gem of the Mediterranean, offers an enchanting blend of fresh herbs, vibrant spices, and wholesome ingredients, reflecting the rich cultural tapestry and historical crossroads of the Middle East. Renowned for its varied palate and healthful properties, Lebanese food is not just about savouring exquisite flavours, but also about embracing a lifestyle that celebrates fresh, seasonal produce, lean proteins, and heart-healthy fats. Embracing the Mediterranean diet, known for its numerous health benefits, Lebanese dishes incorporate olive oil, nuts, legumes, and whole grains, contributing to improved heart health, weight management, and longevity.

"Take your tastebuds on an exotic holiday"

Take your tastebuds on an exotic holiday.” Take your tastebuds on an exotic holiday, no passport required. Lisa’s cooking classes held in her beautiful home are relaxed and informative. I’ve learned new kitchen tricks and have met lovely people and tasted delicious food at the classes that I have attended.

"Adventurous cooking and fun participation"

The Cooking Naturopath provides a relaxing and social environment for learning and sharing her love of tasty, healthy recipes. It was adventurous cooking and fun participation, with take home recipes (& leftovers). The “dinner party” to finish our cooking class was enjoyable with new friends & BYO wime. Highly recommend for recipe inspiration, a taste sensation, and a different way to spend a weekend afternoon.

"Would Highly recommend doing a class with Lisa!"

We attended the Sri Lankan cooking experience with Lisa yesterday and can truly say this was the most wonderful way to spend a Saturday afternoon with great food, great company and even learning a thing or 3 about cooking! We were so very welcomed into Lisa’s kitchen and heart and to share this experience with likeminded new friends was so worthwhile. Would highly recommend doing a class with Lisa!

Lisa is such a generous teacher

Lisa provides the most wonderful experience. Learning to cook Sri Lankan food was so special and then finishing the day eating some amazing food was such a treat. Lisa is such a generous teacher I highly recommend doing one of her classes 10/10

The experience of cooking in a group is very enjoyable

The joy of sharing an afternoon with one of my favourite people – gifting this experience to my daughter-in-law was a great decision. Lisa caught us at the door with the delightful smells of herbs and spices. The experience of cooking in a group is very enjoyable. The flavours of the food has left me wanting more!
