Interview with Maz Valcorza from Sādhanā Kitchen

Last month I had the pleasure of meeting Maz to interview her about the launch of her new cookbook Uncooked.

To say that I was excited about this interview is an understatement. I’ve been a huge fan of Maz and her cafe, Sādhanā Kitchen (Sydney’s first organic raw foods cafe) for a long time.

Now, the Raw Food Jedi is sharing some of her secret to raw food success through her new book. I had a great time during this interview; Maz is such a passionate and lovely person to talk to. We talked about her journey to veganism, Sādhanā Kitchen, and her new cookbook –  it was awesome. I also had fun creating the interview trailer video with my old friend Valourine. Hope you like it….

Superhero Fried Rice

Superhero fried rice

This is not your ordinary fried rice. This is supercharged, superfood fried rice.

It has all the energy and nutrients a superhero needs to fight the villains and save the day. It’s clean and fresh tasting, simple and easy to make, and 100% delicious, if I may say so myself.

This recipe came from my craving for good ol’ Chinese fried rice, while still wanting to eat healthy. What, isn’t fried rice healthy? Umm, no, not the sort you get from takeaway shops anyway. MSG and pig fat isn’t exactly health food.

But this version is :)…

Review of Billy Boil Thermal Cooker and $15 Discount Code Giveaway

billyboil feature

 

My first hand review of the Billy Boil Thermal Cooker: This video was fun to shoot because I had no idea what the outcome would be.

Thermal cooking was originally conceived for camping and caravan travellers but it was quickly adapted for everyday home cooking as an energy efficient cooking method. It certainly is quite effective and it’s definitely a must-try if you do a lot of cooking and you’re looking at cutting your electricity or gas bill….
