Here is a yummy salad recipe for nutrition and lightness. 

Fresh Cheese Salad with Avocado and Orange. 

We sliced avocado, tomato, onion and orange. Then topped with crumbled fresh goats cheese and sprinkled with a squeeze of fresh orange juice. Then we upcycled the whole salad nutritionally with grated dried coconut meat, almonds, dried cranberry, toasted quinoa and chia seeds. Simple and yummy.


The Magic of Food as Medicine Book is divided into three sections for you. Vegetables, Fruits and Herbs. We have gone into over 200 fruits, vegetables and herbs and found the empirical and evidence based information as to why they are medicines. It took over three years to compose and contains lots of great recipes to help you use these ingredients.

EBOOK now available.



I have always loved cooking and before I studied herbal medicine and naturopathy I spent many years in Restaurants and Cafes cooking and looking after people with great food. Its a passion and because my family are French Australian we get to have the best of all worlds. French food is so flavoursome and utilises timeless techniques in cooking, such as sauce making, pan techniques and oven techniques. Australian food is so innovative and culturally blended. It is so fresh. The climate here allows for so many long summer season produce to be used year round and that is such a pleasure when it comes to cooking.

In our work both in the herbal dispensary and in the kitchen. Its so important to love what you are doing and to have a mental sense of the end product before it is even made. We just love inventing, and formulating and creating beautiful products for you to use. My books are full of ideas and techniques. You can also buy our herbal honey syrups and herbal medicines that have all been developed and made by us.  Plus now we have over 20 beautiful skin care and medicinal body products that are aromatherapeutic and also purely gorgeous to put on your skin.IMG_2575
