She made everyone feel really welcome, comfortable and heard. Everyone was encourage to participate in the cooking. Gee made it clear was each ingredient was and why we were using it – how the body uses it and is nourished by it. Each guest came away with a new love of food. Highly recommended!”

“I recently attended the Autumn Seasonal Kitchen workshop which focused on what foods are best for the Autumn season and what to avoid. I learned so much more than I expected. I tried ingredients and spices best for Autumn that I have never cooked with and was amazed by the flavours and the beautiful smells. The workshop is organised to perfection with a lot of content and I definitely recommend for people to take notes so that they can refer to them later. I have learned what my body needs to feel happy and nourished during the Autumn season and cannot wait to do the Winter session.”
