Hello microbial hosts,
We hope you are keeping well + warm.
Just wanted to let you know that there will be no Culture Club in August but we are ridiculously excited that author and foundational food advocate Nicole Azzopardi will be joining us to host September's Culture Club on Saturday September 1 from 9.30am - 12.30pm at the Senior Citizen's Room behind the Daylesford Town Hall. As usual, this will be a free event. No bookings are necessary.
Here is Nicole with her gorgeous family:
After searching for the most nutrient dense, healing food she could find to help heal her eldest daughter’s damaged digestive system, journalist, author and foundational food advocate Nicole Azzopardi, found the very best medicine came from rediscovering some of our oldest traditions. Simple, elegant and beautiful, the practice of culturing vegetables, making stocks and hearty soups and stews has provided the restorative qualities she had searched for. Nicole’s parents were born in Egypt. Her mother is Maltese/ French and her father is Maltese/Greek. She draws on the traditions of all of these cultures and more in her book, The Alchemy Cookbook, to create a delicious array of every day foods that nourish and heal. Her family business, Mumma Care, supports families who are keen to reclaim their inheritance of knowing how to cook foods that soothe, support and heal. She teaches ancestral cooking classes and runs retreats on Victoria's Surfcoast, Australia.
Nicole will be joining us to teach some of her favourite ferments from The Alchemy Cookbook. Nicole will also have copies for sale + signing on the day.
See you then!
