When I expressed my interest in the  cooking workshop by  Woods Macrobotics workshop, the girls  quickly booked for me as my birthday present and the best thing was that they also participated with me.  What a wonderful time together.

Briefly, the Macrobiotic concept: 
1.     Nature and the human body are closely connected
2.    pure food is medicine
3.    Eat food in its whole form
4.     Yin and Yang Balance. 

After brief introductions all round and she gave an explanation on the menu and the food we are cooking today.    Then its time to don on our aprons and get hands on.
