"The woman is a culinary genius – and so knowledgeable about food. The dishes she creates not only taste amazing, but they all serve a particular purpose for your body. Someone I love, admire and have so much respect for."
Jess Ainscough
“I had the good fortune of stumbling across Sam Gowing back in 2002. Since then, whenever I’m run down, flat out, over-roasted, or in need to some professional “energy support”, she is the one I call. She always sets me back on the path to good health, and manages to do so in a way that makes food sexy, and exercise delightful. She has a big heart, and this makes her the real deal. I love her way.”

She took all her knowledge of systems, marketing funnels, premium clients, pricing, blogging, newsletters and the most current software knowledge of the time and translated it into Keri.
