Cook an organic feast
At STYLE we love that the area in which we live is full of opportunities to buy, eat and enjoy healthy, delicious food, especially when it is free of chemical nasties.
Now Brooklet has an organic farm that will offer cooking classes to anyone who wants to learn how to prepare delicious, nutritious meals, make new friends and have fun.
“Our dream is to be able to provide simple and delicious food in a nurturing and nourishing environment, where guests have a hands-on experience of harvesting and foraging from our garden, as well as creating a meal in the kitchen,” Bhavana Organic Farm and Cooking School co-owner Susie Cameron said.
“The meal is enjoyed on the farm and paired with organic wines. Our classes are more than simply learning to cook a particular dish. Topics include gut health, food allergies, slow cooking and seasonal cleanses, all designed to reconnect guests to the foods they are consuming and preparing.”
Susie, who works in marketing and communication and has authored four books, is in partnership with Greta Smith and Jo Rushton.
Greta, who has owned the Brooklet property with husband Perry for 10 years, was in media and multinational business operations and now has a Certificate III in Production
Horticulture – Organic Farming.
Jo, who coaches well-being and nutrition, is also a chef and author of Amazon number-one best-selling book Rocket Fuel on
a Budget, on how to eat organically without going broke.
“Our love of food gelled as soon as we all spent time together,” Susie said.
“As well as being involved in the farm, Jo and I have recently launched the South Pacific Jam Company.
“Bhavana is attracting tourism and corporate events, girls’ weekends away and overall, we hope, becoming an experience that visitors want to include on their stay. In time, we would love to be able to have accommodation on the property.”
