[The Amelia Freer Residency]

When it comes to food, we're firm believers in the idea of preparing beautiful, seasonal meals and enjoying them together around the table.

We try to make food that's healthy and nourishing, and every once in a while, we like to indulge, too.

We're pleased to know that the famed nutritionist Amelia Freer subscribes to these very same notions (and has all the scientific knowledge to back her recommendations up!). 

In fact, we're proud to announce that she'll be hosting a few very special evenings at School presenting her new book, Cook.Nourish.Glow and talking about the food choices we make and how they affect our health.

It's an event not to be missed, and a great way to start 2016 on the right foot.  

Below, she's given us a few fun and wintry recipes to share, so that you get a taste of her style—Do eat healthfully and plentifully, but do it consciously and with style!  

Bon Appetit and see you at School in 2016!


[Gluten-Free Mince Pies]

 “I’m not a fan of baking or making desserts, cakes, treats or sweets (even if they have a healthier form of sugar in them) as they are still going to disrupt our blood sugar levels. The abundance of sweet foods on offer over Christmas can so easily dent our willpower and health, but I am not the Christmas Scrooge! I have given in to your requests for festive treats – it’s Christmas after all. If anything was going to tempt me, it would definitely be a mince pie, but because they are made with gluten I always miss out. So here is an easy gluten-free recipe. Remember, these pies are not to be gorged on in the assumption that they are healthy – make them, enjoy one and share the rest with your loved ones.”

[Chewy Chocolate, Almond & Cranberry Brownies] 

“We all fancy a little sweet treat once and a while – these gorgeously chewy brownies will satisfy any sweet tooth
(I definitely advocate a little of something you love every so often)!”

[Chocolate Dipped Fruit]

  “The good news: A small amount of cocoa, or high-cocoa content dark chocolate, is likely to be good for us, even if consumed daily (but dependant on what else is consumed in terms of other sugars). Yippee!!”

[Turmeric Smoothie as Zingy as Sunshine]

 “Those that know me will know that I am a huge turmeric fan – I use it as often as I can . . ."
