Cooking Classes & Retreats

My healthy cooking classes and wellness retreats are designed to inspire you to create healthier habits so you can live a more wholesome, balanced lifestyle.


The Art of Nourishing beach house is at Point Lookout on the magnificent North Stradbroke Island. The natural, eco house sleeps 4 guests for overnight retreats or 8 people for day workshops and cooking classes.


The house itself is an education experience as it is a naturally built house using many locally sourced materials. It is the third chemical free home I have built with my husband Greg, as well as renovating a unit in Brisbane with natural products. I love to share my knowledge of how the house was built and how to clean without using chemicals.


My cooking workshops are a fun way to spend time with friends or meet some new ones and the art of nourishing beach house is an ideal sanctuary. I have 25 years experience in healthy nutrition and have been teaching cooking classes and writing cookbooks spanning over 30 years.
