The Calm Kitchen

“Food can be complicated but this class made it simple. Eating and talking felt like it should, like home. My soul and my body left well fed.”
— Dominique McMullan, The Irish Times
The Calm Kitchen・Joanna Bourke

The Calm Kitchen is a cookery class with a difference. During the half-day workshop you'll learn about how to de-stress through cooking, and an introduction to the tools of Intuitive Eating – an anti-diet approach to eating that connects you to your body and your true appetite. It's a relaxed, fun and intimate class in a cozy kitchen environment. You'll do some hands-on cooking and I'll demo a seasonal, winter warming vegetarian lunch which we'll eat together. 

If you're craving less screen time and more time getting your hands dirty in the kitchen, this class is for you.

Ingredients:

  • Vegetarian lunch, demo & recipes of dishes served on the day.

  • Mindful Cooking as a way to relieve stress.

  • Introduction to Intuitive Eating – helping you to learn and trust your body's hunger signals.

 
 

Kind words from the November 2017 Calm Kitchen event:

"Fun, relaxing and really interesting, I thoroughly enjoyed the course, the company and listening to Joanna's experiences."

"It was a treat to take time out to remind ourselves to get back to basics and get grounded in the kitchen."

There is a hunger today for a more considered life, one where our everyday circumstances are not a series of inconveniences to get through as quickly as possible but rather a source of our awakening and pleasure. We don’t have to go looking for it, we don’t have to purchase it, because it’s right here: in the way a cup of tea warms our hands, in the contemplation of the last of the summer tomato, in the rough skin of a storage potato, the scent of garlic softening in oil.

Had a lovely time yesterday at your Farm to Table event with great friends. Met some lovely people, learned loads and had the most delicious food and drinks from The Chopping Board. You'll leave very full, happy, motivated and wanting more. Will be back for sure. Don't think about it people, book and go. Lovely experience.

I had a great day at the farm to table event that you both hosted . A fabulous coming together of The Chopping Board and Not Another Walled Garden. I came away with a lot of gardening knowledge, and culinary skill. Thank you. Highly recommended.
