Cooking with words

Our guest speaker is Jude Blereau, who will speak on writing and editing a cook book. This is a topic that has been requested a number of times and will be very interesting. So come and enjoy a very different topic. Jude has been asked to bring along her latest cook book for sale, if you would like to purchase on the night, it will be cash only and retail for $45.00. Read more on Jude Blereau at the website <http://www.wholefoodcooking.com.au>.

Jude Blereau is a natural foods chef, author, food coach, cooking teacher and real food activist who has been involved with the organic and wholefoods industry for more than 18 years. She first became involved in the natural food industry while living in the US in the late 1980s, where she was inspired by the work being done in health and nutrition. She returns there often.

In 1997, Jude co-founded The Earth Market, a much loved wholefood store and café in Perth, Western Australia. In 2001, she founded Whole Food Cooking. Her focus is on helping people learn about good food—what it truly is, where to get it, how to use it—and to give them the tools and information they need to make healthy eating a part of their everyday lives.

Jude released her first cookbook Wholefood … heal, nourish, delight in March 2006, and her second Coming Home To Eat … Wholefood for the Family in March 2008.
