Cooking and Mixology Masterclass followed by a selection of 9 dishes shared family-style
Ever wondered just what your body really needs when it comes to nutrition? At our recent Eat Happy event, we looked into the science of what you should be feeding your gut, courtesy of Ovolo's Executive Head Chef & Happiness Factory's Founder. A hands-on masterclass was led by Chef Raul to truly understand the why behind good food choices, and give guests the knowleddge to create Veda-esque dishes from the comfort of their own home. We also had Ovolo's award-winning mixologist with us to show guests how to put a spin on classic cocktails to make even their favourite tipples a gut-friendly option!
With an emphasis on the colours of the rainbow, we focused on the importance of feeding our gut with pre- & pro-biotic foods, as well as removing any foods which can cause digestive stress.
