Seeds, Grains and Nuts Workshop

With such a variety of grains and seeds available at supermarkets and health food stores these days it’s getting a bit hard to keep up. So we’ve asked one of our inaugural Snail of Approval recipients to talk us through the maze and show us how to prepare and cook these tasty, high nutritional value foods.

Katrina Shepherd of Dandelion and Mallow Wholefood Kitchen  ( will be conducting two workshops on Thursday 15 August at a private home near Berry.


The hands-on workshops are limited to 10 participants and you’ll learn all about seeds, grains and nuts, then prepare and share a sumptuous 3 course feast. Choice of a morning session with lunch or an evening session with dinner. All ingredients and kitchen implements as well as comprehensive notes and recipes will be provided. All you need to bring is an apron and wine if you wish – locally made kombucha is included.

With numbers limited early booking is recommended.
