Introduction to Vegan Cooking workshop

Vegan quiche (chickpea flour)

Yes, we’re Jozi Uncooked, but sometimes, we fire up the oven, turn on the stove, and COOK. Right now, as we head into winter, seems like a pretty good time to do just that. And given the mounting interest in plant-based diets (everyone from Bill Clinton to Beyonce is trying them out), we’re offering a workshop that will give you an overview of the what, why and how of a vegan diet.

Workshop details: Wednesday 23 April, 18:30-20:30

Observatory, JHB

R350 per person. Bookings close Monday, 21 April. Email joziuncooked@gmail.com to book.

You will learn about vegan nutrition, the vegan “food group,” meal planning and of course, how to make several delicious vegan dishes. We will enjoy a delicious meal of the food we’ve prepared in the workshop, and you’ll go home with a booklet of recipes and other information.

April detox and workshops

The next detox is right around the corner, April 14-18th. Yes, it ends on a holiday, but what better way to celebrate than with the last day of a 5-day cleanse?

How does the 5-day raw detox work? Each day you receive all of your meals– a delicious bag of gourmet raw food, including breakfast, snack, lunch, juice and supper. You choose between morning (before 9am) and evening (after 6pm) deliveries. All you have to do is enjoy the good food– we make it, and your body takes care of the rest. There are lots of pictures of detox meals here on the website if you want to have a closer look. The food is all vegan, raw, gluten-free and sugar-free. We do our best to meet special dietary needs, as long as you let us know in advance (and there may be menu alteration charges).

The cost of the detox is R1650 plus delivery charges– send us your delivery address and we’ll calculate those for you.

Sign up fast to ensure your place on the detox(es)– space is limited and the last few have been completely full! Bookings are only confirmed once payment is received, and bookings close the Thursday before the detox starts, so that we have time to prepare.

In addition, we’ve got 2 workshops coming up in April. Both will be at our premises in Observatory.

Introduction to raw food- 10 April, 18:30-20:30
Learn all the basics of a raw food diet– nutrition, ingredients, equipment, etc– and prepare basic staples that you can turn into delicious, healthy meals. Includes a meal. R350

Introduction to vegan cooking- 19 April, 11:00-13:00
This cooking class covers the basic what and how of a vegan diet. We’ll make a delicious meal to share as well. R350

If you’d like to sign up for a workshop, email joziuncooked@gmail.com. Please let us know of any food allergies.

Happy 2014 everyone! We all tend to start the new year with a resolution to eat better, and then as the year progresses, we drift back into old eating habits. So why not let Jozi Uncooked get you started on healthier eating this January.

The first 5-day raw detox of 2014 will be offered from 27-31 January.

We managed to keep the price the same at 1500 for two full years, but with increasing food costs, we had to raise the price this year. Don’t worry, it’s worth it.

August already?! For those of us in Jozi, that means winter is almost over. It’s been a fairly mild winter, so I guess we shouldn’t complain. I am certainly looking forward to summer fruits! In the mean time, we have plenty to keep you busy (and informed and well-fed) during August.
