It is with much pleasure and excitement (I'm going to cry!) that I share with you this news today which I have been trying so hard to keep in! Since January 2014 Elisa Watson (my photographer), myself and and the amazing team at Hardie Grant have been working on something very special (and in my opinion, very beautiful) due for release in the new year. It has been a long process involving a lot of hard work, a lot of long days, late nights, a whole lot of food and a lot more dirty dishes (thank you mum for being their to save the kitchen!) to create the most exciting and definitely biggest project from Kenkō so far. This something special is my first ever COOKBOOK titled Kenkō Kitchen due for release in the new year.
I cannot wait to share this book with you all and show you all the amazing recipes I have been working on. In this book you will find over 100 recipes for super delicious salads, pancakes with healthy ice cream, waffles, granola, decadent desserts, mouth watering mains and a whole heap of drinks and condiments like vegan goat cheese and ricotta. There really is a meal for every occasion in the Kenkō Kitchen cookbook!
THE HARDBACK COOKBOOK IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER THROUGH book world, BOOK DEPOSITORY, BOOKTOPIA, AMAZON AND RANDOM HOUSE NZ.
RELEASED 1ST FEBRUARY 2015 IN AUSTRALIA AND THE UK, MARCH 3RD IN THE US, CANADA AND REST OF THE WORLD.
Want to learn how to cook simple, delicious and healthy meals? Now you can by coming to a Kenkō Kitchen Cooking Club event!
Regular Cooking Club demonstration classes are now being held in Melbourne, Australia run by Kate Bradley. Covering a range of cuisines, dietary requirements and food types; each class will be packed filled with flavour and fun!
My first post and recipe for the year and I am so excited. 2014 was a very big year - I contributed to nation wide magazines, I started taking my own cooking classes based on the whole foods plant based diet, I wrote my first ever cookbook which is entirely gluten and sugar free as well as vegan. Alongside this I became a lot healthier. Not just healthier in my body but healthier in my mind. 2014 was the first year I really learnt to appreciate myself for who I was and the way my body was, instead of beating myself up for not being 10kgs lighter (continued)...
My first recipe for the year is a recipe which featured in Nourish Magazine last year. They are the perfect sides or starters to a meal. A delicious traditional Turkish salad which can be found on every menu in Turkey and the insanely yummy Fava - a fava/broad bean, olive oil and dill puree which is the perfect accompaniment to so many dishes.
I hope you have all had a relaxing and great holiday period and I look forward to working towards a happier and healthier community with you this year!
