Event Details

Don’t miss this informative day of talks that turns healthy eating on its head by debunking common food myths and explaining what “real food” really means.

Curated by nutritional therapist, health writer and passionate foodie Eve Kalinik, this illuminating day of talks will expose the truth that surrounds “healthy eating”. 

Unlike much of the healthy eating advice out there, this day is all about what we should be eating rather than what we shouldn’t. We will demystify some of the seemingly vilified foods, so you can make better sense of some of the nonsense surrounding nutrition and stop shunning beneficial food groups. 

We will explore why coming back to food in its most natural state and making discerning choices as to what we eat and how we prepare our food can best support our health and nutrition.

Through interactive demonstrations and Q&A sessions, our panel of experts will show you why butter, coffee, wine, meat and milk should all be on your menu.


  • An overview of “real foods” by nutritional therapist Eve Kalinik

What “real food” really means and how we need to be more discerning about the foods we eat; being more inclusive than exclusive with our diet and how it helps to support your gut and overall health.

  • Nick Barnard, founder of Rude Health, on butter 

A short history of our relationship with fats; fats and oils suitable for cooking; the joy of butter, a living fat, including butter tasting; how to make ghee demo and tasting.

  • John Quilter, YouTube sensation and founder of CRU Kafe, on coffee

The health benefits of coffee; how coffee can improve energy levels and make you smarter; how coffee can help burn fat; the essential nutrients and antioxidants in coffee; why go organic; how to best drink your cuppa; coffee tasting with beans straight from the table-top roaster. 

  • Bobby Fishel, director of Gudfish, on wine

What is natural wine? Is organic wine natural wine? How does it differ from commercial wine in both the vineyard and the cellar? Why does it matter? Winemaking chemicals, health consequences and environmental impact. Sulphites – winemaker’s best friend or worst enemy? Controversy and issues in the world of natural wine. The place of natural wine in the world wine scene and its future. A taste of natural wine

  • Ben White, founder and business manager of Coombe Farm Organic, on meat
    Free-range, organic or grass-fed? Is modern agriculture focusing on consumer health? What health benefits can actually be attributed to red meat? What will I find if I trace my steak all the way back to the soil? Clear, honest answers on a noisy topic and some organic meat tasting.
  • Peter Kindel, head cheesemaker at Daylesford Organic, on milk
    How Daylesford farms organically and the pedigree British Friesian herd and Gloucester herd it uses for milk. The milking process and using milk for kefir, yoghurt and handmade cheeses. Why Daylesford doesn’t homogenise its milk; the health benefits of kefir; and why choose organic?
