Practical Magic

Your essential guide to the equipment that counts in the wholefood kitchen


Whilst a wholesome meal begins with quality ingredients, the tools we use certainly contribute to the end result. I believe a few well chosen pieces of quality equipment can make your experience of cooking easier, more successful, even enjoyable. 


Pots and Pans

Stainless steel, cast iron or enamel?  Discover which materials conduct and diffuse heat best and why this is so important. You really don't need a lot, rather just a few well chosen ones that will deliver the goods.


Knives and Sharpening

A good knife is a thing of wonder. It has the magical ability to make chopping quicker and easier. Buying said knife can be impenetrable maze - let alone keeping it sharp. All that's about to change.


Mix, Stir and Whisk

Sieving, straining and weighing too. I'll show you the best tools to make the job so much easier. Then we'll talk food processors, blenders, grain mills and rollers when you are ready for the next step. 


  • The different materials used for pots and pans and how the type of material effects how evenly the heat is transferred, and which are the best.
  • How to choose the best pots and pans to improve your cooking.
  • How to choose the right cookware for your cooking needs and budget.
  • How to choose the right cookware when you are starting out, and what to add as you can afford it.  
  • Understanding Thermal Mass. How heat is transferred and how it effects your end results.
  • The right tool for the job at hand.
  • Which knife might be best for you and how to look after it and keep it sharp.

"... secondly, a very long overdue THANK YOU. I took the time, saved my money, did my homework and upon your recommendation purchased a complete new set of cookware, cast iron dutch oven, a few knives and good chopping boards. I cannot begin to tell you how having the right tools has changed my cooking experiences. It just makes food prep so much more pleasurable. Your useful list of kitchen tools has saved me and I am sure many others from finding cooking a chore. It has turned the process into a joyful experience that I continue to learn from and continue to love more each day. Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you! "

A little bit about me

As a pioneer, leader and respected authority of the wholefoods industry, I’ve been living a wholefood life long before ‘wholefood’ was a buzzword for healthy living. It’s taken me years to learn what I know, but a lifetime to truly understand what I know and place it within a wholistic framework.

I’ve always believed that food is not something that simply stops us from feeling hungry. It is exactly the same as love, an elemental human need and together, they sustain and nourish the body and the soul. It is never just about the food we eat. It is always about nourishing both the body and soul, and this philosophy is at the heart of what I call a wholistic approach.

Yes, it’s a jungle out there, with so much confusing information telling you what wholesome, healthy, ethical and sustainable eating is all about. I love giving you the information and practical tools that you need to carve an achievable path through it all.  

My wholistic approach condenses everything that I’ve learnt, practiced and refined over 20 years of teaching and writing 5 bestselling, award winning wholefood books. I adore it when my students report the positive changes for the better in their lives. I know it works, and I know that it will effect delicious, nourishing changes for you and those you love, far more easily than you may think possible.
