Return of the Larder

RETURN OF THE LARDER

Traditionally food preservation was a way of life and the larder the backbone of the kitchen. Today less people consider food preservation a necessity but there are many benefits. Preserving food is still a fantastic way to stretch your budget, help the environment and live a healthier life all at the same time. A well stocked larder will ensure that you have something to eat and share whatever shock befalls our food system.

 

During the day Daphne will look at three key ways of preserving - drying, fermenting and elixirs and look at the different ways these foods can help support health and well being. At the end of the day you will have some delicious preserves to take home!

 

"I'm on a roll with preserving - thankyou for inspiring me"

FEEDING THE GUT MICROBIOME

Feeding the microbiome

The foods we eat affect the diversity, quality, and quantity of healthy microorganisms that live in our gut. 

Gut microbes shape how you think, how you feel, and how your body responds to illness. Eating a diverse diet of plant-based nutrient rich foods is fundamental in supporting our amazing inner eco-system. 

Join Daphne for a day in the kitchen and whilst preparing food together learn the art of supporting a healthy microbiome - this includes organic food, prebiotics and probiotics, balanced omega 3 & 6 fatty acids, polyphenols and glutamine rich foods.

 

Dates available:
