What is a Relationship with Food?
If you’re unfamiliar with this concept, it can seem a little alien to refer to our connection with food as a relationship. Most people don’t even think they have a relationship with food, but trust me, you do. The dictionary defines the term ‘relationship’ as ‘the way in which two or more people or things are connected’. Essentially, if you fuel your body with nutritious foods and goodness, your body will thank you in return. It is all connected. Let’s put it this way; you wouldn’t want to invite a friend into your home who you don’t get along with or doesn’t make you feel good, in the same way that the food you are consuming needs to be beneficial and enhancing for your body. Arguably even more so, given that you are not merely inviting food into your home but welcoming it inside your body.
My Relationship with Food Events
Welcome to my events, whether I will be demonstrating in my own kitchen, or at a venue. I welcome you to attend one of my events in a relaxed environment. The motivation behind my cooking demonstrations is to encourage and inspire people to get back in the kitchen and cook wholesome food. My recipes are Gluten-Free which are designed to be fairly easy, to use ingredients that can be found in a local supermarket and can be served to a whole family. I also encourage you to attend any of my lifestyle events, giving you an insight of how to nourish yourself and nurture your relationship with food.

My Relationship with Food Baking Mat
My relationship with Food silicone baking mats are the perfect choice and the investment will last for years. The benefit of the BPA-free silicone mat is that nothing sticks thus enabling cooks to reduce oil up to a full 100%. Whether the mat is used for roasting vegetables, with only a touch of oil for flavour, or baking homemade fish & chips made with corn flakes instead of traditional wheat-based batter, any added oil is minimal compared to frying.
