How easy is that? If you like that and you live in Melbourne I know they run cooking classes throughout the year, and one cooking course is on healthy and wholesome salads which is held later in the year. The other course that maybe of interest to many is; ‘The Lost Art of Fermentation”, which shows how to ferment your raw foods.
