What they're saying...


I have always been fascinated about what we consume can affect our health, being a mother of 2 with a busy family and working schedule, cooking freshly and tasty (and fast) has become key principles of my everyday cooking. 

Learning plant based diet and nutrition from Sam helped me massively to understand the combination of planet based food and about the future trend of food. This opportunity has led me into various different projects so thank you Sam!

Since leaving MasterChef Australia last year, I have been looking for ways to expand my food knowledge, particularly around ingredients and nutrition, there are so many claims out there and when your passion is feeding people, you want to make sure you’re getting it right, there was so much more I wanted and needed to know.

I gained so much from my work with Sam, it was the springboard for me to continue learning and she gave me such encouragement to remain on my career path. I look forward to working with Sam at any opportunity in the future, she is so motivating and genuinely interested – what a find.

I had the absolute pleasure of attending my first cooking class with the lovely Chef Sam Gowing. A few years back I never would have dreamt that I would be so lucky to be working with such amazing people and discovering my passion for food. There was a week back in 2016 where I made up a bunch of fried rice and that’s all I ate for a whole week. Like we’re talking breakfast, lunch and dinnerI had no idea about cooking (clearly) and wasn’t interested in learning about what I was putting into my body. Fast forward 3 years and I’ve got the privilege of learning from the best.
