Last weekend we had a our first workshop! Dairy-free Basics.
We showed our students how exciting it is to create magical tastiness with raw plant foods! From a beautiful fresh coconut milk which was made into a delicious salted caramel frappe, next it was onto a creamy cashew cheesecake ~ Dragon Fruit Dream Cheesecake, with activated almonds and Alice Springs Barhee dates in the base, then a delicious layer of chocolate cashew cream, passionfruit dragon fruit fuchsia coloured cashew cream then topped with a fantastic passionfruit white chocolate later it was onto making a Macadamia Dragon fruit Chèvre ~ cultured nut cheese, mixed with fresh garlic, rosemary and shallots, layered with a dragon fruit cranberry jam & topped with broken pistachio nuts.
Our students received a kind 10% off voucher to spend on organic plant goods at The Source Bulk Foods Cairns ! We love that The Source Bulk Foods is plastic bag free! buying only what you need or buying in bulk is a smart way to save money!
If you are lucky enough to have The Source Bulk Foods in your neighbourhood go check the store out!
Our students received a beautiful recipe book, to inspire making more raw plant foods at home! Including the three recipes shown in the workshop this lovely coloured recipe book has original recipes for a tangy Zingy Lemon Ginger Slice, a Pumpkin Sundried Tomato Pasta using the dairy-free nut whey from the cultured cheese and a fantastic Mushroom Teriyaki Sushi recipe using freshly grated coconut as the ‘rice’!!
For a snack our students enjoyed a beautiful element inspired cheese platter Macadamia Dragonfruit Chèvre (Earth), soft Blue Cheese with blue green algae and bamboo ash (Water) and a mokey spicy Barbecue Cheddar (Fire).
