This was my first visit to the Natural Products Show for years, so I braced myself for the usual long queues, security checks and interrogations – but I needn’t have worried as it was surprisingly easy to get in. They just scanned our tickets and the badges were […]
Head chef at the Dru Centre in North Wales, Snowdonia Mountain Lodge, Keith devises and oversees the culinary and nutritional delights for all the course participants throughout the year.
His passion for feeding people began with home-baking at the age of 10. He was soon bringing to school cakes, breads and pasties. His schoolmates joined in and before long they were swapping cakes and recipes during the lunch breaks and raiding mums’ cookery books in the evenings.
A qualified Medical Herbalist Keith also offers exclusive and engaging health and nutrition retreats and courses in North Wales, aswell as workshops and seminars on Aryuveda throughout the UK and abroad.
Why is linseed tea good for you? Normally we hear about linseeds, or flax seeds, because they are packed full of omega 3 essential fats, but not so well known is that tea made from the seeds is also therapeutic. We all know we need to be better hydrated and drink […]
Cooking For Indian Indian People The most difficult test I’ve found in cooking is to make Indian food for Indian people! A bit like making fresh pasta for Italians, mousaka for Greek people or deep fried Mars bars for the Scots. When I worked in India for 4 months at our retreat centre, […]
As you can guess the waiters at Wong Kei’s aren’t normally available to give friendly advice and recipes – that is if you want to try to make the dishes at home. But by using our finely tuned sense of taste, and a bit of time dissecting the meal […]
Wong Kei Restaurant on Wardour Street in Chinatown, has a reputation for really great value chinese food and fast service. It’s always full and a lot of the local chinese people eat there, so it must be good. It also has a reputation for the rudest waiters in London, which […]

Happy New Year folks, hope you all had a great Christmas. Don’t worry if you had too good a time! Like me you can quickly undo the damage with these great detox techniques. I started off with the castor oil packs, skin brushing and hot and cold showers […]
True to my word I promised Samia we would be flying off to a foreign country in December to break up the winter. The problem is we are the only ones flying north to Edinburgh! The weather there has been even worse than Wales, and the airport was closed for a few […]
Final part for the Christmas Veggie Recipes for this year. The sprout dish is really a miracle because even lukewarm and soggy sprouts taste great with this recipe. The saffron potato and parsnip mash is good too because the saffron makes it sound posh enough for Christmas, it’s […]
When you are making a veggie Christmas dinner you can really go to town on the vegetable dishes. Here are two recipes that are quite easy to make but delicious and impressive. The stoved potatoes are particularly good because you make them in a pan but they look […]
Veggie Christmas Cookery Demo’s This week we have had some great Veggie Christmas cookery demo’s, in Sale, Manchester and Dimensions in Bangor. This is a great nut roast recipe from the demo. It’s not a veggie Christmas without nut roast, burned roasties and luke warm sprouts. Make plenty […]
You don’t necessarily need to be a strict vegetarian to be healthy. Even a predominantly plant-based diet is a much healthier lifestyle choice than eating largely animal products every day.
