The Wellbeing Room Podcast - Season 2, Episode 19
In this episode, I interview Holly Davis.
Holly is a whole food chef, author and educator. She teaches a range of face to face workshops and online courses covering Sourdough Baking, Fermentation, and Japanese Whole foods.
Listen in as Holly shares:
her first memories of cooking
when the idea for Iku Wholefoods first formed in her mind
when she was first introduced to the idea of using food as a way to alter the way you feel and impact your wellbeing
her experience of travelling to Japan and learning macrobiotic cooking at the Macrobiotic Centre in Tokyo
how she met Andzej Gospodarczyk and worked with him in his macrobiotic restaurant in Sydney
her journey with Iku Wholefoods
her passion for fermented foods, the benefits of making them and eating them in small quantities
contraindications for certain fermented foods
something she cooks regularly that always lifts her spirits
some of the ferments that she still wants to learn how to make.
“...I love the physicality of cooking… the whole connection to the things that I’m using and to the ingredients themselves and then what I’m actually creating. I love that.”
“I used to say, from the macro kind of thing, you know, “You are what you eat”. But I don’t think that anymore. I think very much you’re what you can digest. That actually, it doesn’t matter. You can eat the very best food in the world but if you can’t digest it you’ve got a problem. It won’t be as enjoyable, and you won’t get as much from it, and you know, it’s not really of benefit if you can’t digest it.”
