Nourish Your Mind and Body


The Calm Kitchen is a cookery class with a difference. The kitchen can be a place to get grounded and calm your mind through cooking.and we'll explore how cooking can help you to de-stress in the kitchen.

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


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

  • Cooking as a way to relieve stress.

  • Introduction to Intuitive Eating - an anti-diet eating practice that helps you tune into your natural appetite.

"Fun, relaxing and really interesting, I thoroughly enjoyed the course and 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." - Michelle
