Update on appearances and cooking classesPosted: August 5, 2011
The Organic Expo and Green show has arrived today is the first day, this year it is in both Sydney and Melbourne.
For details go to http://www.organicexpo.com.au/
Each year its popularity grows and the numbers of visitors increase. The organic industry has come a very long way since I opened Iku in 1985. At that time organic was associated with muddy vegetables and not much else. Biodynamic rice was only available 9 months of the year and everyone thought us crazy for championing the cause. It is heart warming to see the growth and burgeoning interest.
I will be onstage tomorrow August 13th at 1.30pm demonstrating a few simple dishes that reflect the principles of a wholefood way of eating, if your about do come and say hello. I will have recipe cards with menu suggestions for a wholeday of winter wholefoods and I will be discussing foods that harm and foods that heal. I will be making and discussing a compound butter mix, which offers a range of highly nutritious fats, an Andean grains Casserole which demonstrates all the principles of nutrient dense eating and showing people how to make their own delicious chicken stock.
I will post the recipes here next week for all to trial and enjoy. I hope to see you there.
