Melanie Leeson - Mettle & Grace
A class for anyone wanting to incorporate more nourishing foods into their daily eating or for those suffering dairy and gluten intolerance.
Mel has worked as a chef with a focus on vegetarian and whole foods for a number of years including stints as head chef at Monk Bodhi Dharma, My Goodness Organics and Pressed Juices. She recently launched her own business Mettle + Grace offering one-on-one personalised meal planning and cooking classes especially aimed at individuals with allergies, intolerances and food restrictions
In this class Mel will share lots of delicious plant-based recipes for main meals, snacks and desserts all designed to nourish, heal and energise your body and mind and build your gut health and immune system this winter.
Using whole and unprocessed seasonal foods rich in prebiotic, probiotic and brain nourishing nutrients, Mel’s recipes are rich in healthy natural fats and oils. Mel loves to show her students how to utilise fresh herbs and spices to add flavour and colour to recipes without adding processed sauces, condiments and sweeteners and to remove the worry of preservatives, additives, emulsifiers, thickeners and flavouring enhancers.
This is a great class for anyone wanting to incorporate more nourishing foods into their daily eating or for those suffering dairy and gluten intolerance.
Come along and learn to make Oat + Mesquite Crackers, Spiced Pumpkin Dip, Turmeric + Ginger Fish Curry, Spiral Vegetable Tart, Pink + Green Salad with Vegan Tuna, Maple Buckwheat Granola, Choc Chip Peanut Cookies and Vanilla Birthday Cake
