So Much More than Wholefood Cooking…

Wholefoods, Yes + Holistic Thinking + Conviviality + Kitchen Wisdom.

Cooking classes at Jiivala are all about bringing life back into food for the benefit of all parts of your body and environment. We believe that what is good for the environment is good for the body and what is good for the body is good for the environment. When we source our food, eat and prepare it with this in mind a wonderful confluence of beautiful things happens, taking the art of cooking and eating to a whole new level.

Classes are not just simply about information and learning new skills, so much more is incorporated for a ‘holistic experience’ that has students raving about the classes. With more that 25 years experience cooking and teaching people to cook, Sherry Strong will literally open up a new beautiful way to look at food and holistic living.
