"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!
