Lauren, SVCS Student.
“At first it seemed expensive. But I joined anyway because I loved your philosophy behind food and cooking. I can now say that it was worth the money!”

The whole way I cook has under gone a transformation. Your recipes where the ones that started me down this path, as I find I can manage any of them any night after work.

Emma from Wollongong Australia

With a young baby and a partner who works late, Emma found herself becoming resentful of having to cook. Until she signed up for online cooking classes last year. Now she not only appreciates the benefits of a streamlined pantry, her whole attitude to cooking has changed. And her meal time anxiety is gone.

Jim, SVCS Student.
Love the videos; cooking works very well in this format (as opposed to something like yoga or a golf swing or learning the violin where someone needs hands-on supervision to make sure they’re doing things right).

Miriam from Tweed Canada

Widowed with a grown up family, Miriam’s diabetes gave her a new reason to focus on taking better care of herself. The good news is, she is not only healthier and happier, she’s lost some weight and has even started creating her own recipes!

Gerry, SVCS Student.
I LOVE THE SVCS!! I have completely changed my eating habit AND am LOVING IT! What I especially love about you recipes, is the versatility if I do not have something available, there’s always something else I can use instead. Also, I tend to assemble my menu’s rather than cook for hours. It gives me more freedom – even at the last minute – to change my menu the way I feel like it.

“Definitely, worth every penny. Rather than focus on strict recipes, it teaches how to cook”

Carol, SVCS Student.
“You have changed my life! I never really thought I’d get into cooking, or be any good at it. Your simple recipes and especially your videos and attitude have given me inspiration and confidence. Really dramatic change for me. I can’t thank you enough.”

Carrie, SVCS Student.
Your course has been awesome (both myself and my family thank you for the amazing dinners we’ve been having lately!) The depth and amount of info you provided was really amazing – between the videos, and extra tips and suggestions to modify each recipe to your own tastes, there’s no way you can fail! And it’s fun (I can’t believe that I – queen of dinner reservations – am saying that, but it is fun!).

Samantha, SVCS Student.
“Even if you do know how to cook – this is still useful – tremendously beneficial, a different approach for me – a whole different way of thinking how I approach my meals.”

Mary A., Virginia, USA. SVCS Student.
“I have lost 35 pounds so far by making Jules’ Reclaim Your Waistline principles the centerpiece of my weight loss program!”

Lieve, SVCS Student.
I like Jules no nonsense style. She doesn’t use fancy equipment and she uses a lot of veggies. It is easy and tastes fantastic! I can do the classes whenever I want (right now I lie in bed… It is 01:35 … My husband is snoring).

Steve, SVCS Student.
One of the very best features of the school – and I really find this to be of benefit, I can’t emphasise it enough. It’s the expanded versions of the recipes, with the tips, tricks, alternatives & solutions to problems. VERY useful.

Alison, SVCS Student.
I love the minimal ingredients. Too often cookery books and TV shows depend on using “fancy” ingredients to impress. It surely doesn’t hurt that Jules is a good teacher too!

Sarah, SVCS Student.
I totally changed my attitude to cooking thanks to you. I so love your down-to-earth, simple ingredient, simple cooking techniques and the wonderful cooking videos.

Nathalie, SVCS Student.
What I like most is how Jules tries to make the recipes easy to understand for everybody and the beautiful pictures which make your mouth water. Also it’s nice to be able to take in the lessons at whichever rhythm you’re comfortable with, be it quicker or slower.

Ashley, SVCS Student.
The recipes are quick, easy and always tasty. The best part is the “magic” of how just 5 ingredients (give or take) are used to create a really flavorful, seemingly complicated dish. I also appreciate how the classes are organized and presented in weekly installments.

Jay, SVCS Student.
I would, and have, recommended The Stonesoup Virtual Cookery School to others. Yours is the first site I’ve found that does “simple and healthy” food that really IS quick and fantastically tasty. And, finally, as a U.S. student, I love to experience the culinary perspective of another country!

Emma, SVCS Student
“When I signed up for the course I wasn’t expecting to be bombarded with so much terrific stuff. You’ve been so generous with your knowledge and resources. I’m really enjoying it.”

Kathleen, SVCS Student
“The reality is that I work 16 to 18 hour days working largely with my hands, I don’t like fast food and can’t afford take-out every night. As a result most of my meals have been what I can eat out-of-hand – fruit, sandwiches, the occasional salad, which is a very Spartan way of living.
Your 10-ingredient shopping lists and template recipes have changed all that – shopping is done in 30 minutes and I spend 15 minutes a day cooking, which gives me 5-7 healthy meals for the week, leftovers for lunch, and that’s eating = SORTED! I am now excited about cooking and I love everything you do on Stonesoup.”

Julie, SVCS Student.
“The whole way I cook has under gone a transformation. Your recipes where the ones that started me down this path, as I find I can manage any of them any night after work.”

Stephanie, SVCS Student.
“I’m sure I’m not your typical customer, but I love the simplicity of your recipes. Thanks to your blog, website and cooking school my husband will finally try my cooking! He is a picky eater and wants to know what is in every recipe. He would tune out before I was done listing the ingredients in dinner! Now he will at least try everything and we have had many successes with your recipes..”

Kristine, Stonesoup Virtual Cookery School Member.
I’ve been enjoying my membership to The Stone Soup Virtual Cookery quite a bit; it has definitely changed my perspective on cooking and how I approach food and my pantry. Thank you!! Your website and blog are inspired and I hope you are being wildly successful spreading the word about how fun and easy it can be to eat good, healthy food.”

Jenny, SVCS Student.
“Your classes and all the recipe videos have helped me actually feel comfortable going in to the kitchen and adapting recipes, or even cooking without a recipe. You probably don’t notice how you brainstorm out loud during the videos anymore, but it’s been a huge help to me in learning how to think about cooking. Thank you.”

Ruba, SVCS Student.
“I have been following your blog for a real long while Jules, and I didn’t imagine I will learn so much more from the subscription but wanted to give back after following you for a such a long time 🙂 I was pleasantly surprised of course, thank you for the great work and I am very much looking forward to this coming class.”

Christa, SVCS Student.
“I would definitely recommend this school. I already have shared how great it is with my mom and sister. My favorite feature is the videos that accompany the recipes. It is great to learn by watching to see how it should be done. You do a great job explaining the steps as you go.”

Elizabeth, SVCS Student.
“The template recipes are a new flexible approach to cooking with what you have/what you want. They have sparked creativity and better nutrition, not to mention less waste. Each lesson has had a positive impact on our cooking and eating habits.”

Julie, SVCS Student.
“I am also almost ready to get rid of most of my cook books, as I really only use your recipes now. In fact I tend to scan all other recipes and if there are more than 5 ingredients, or steps just pass it by. I’m looking to simplify my life, and you really have made quite a difference to that – I enjoy preparing dinner now.”

Jana, SVCS Student.
“I love the extra bits that come with the recipes such as how to adapt recipes to carnivore or vegetarian etc, other ingredients that work well (improving my basic & recipe creation skills) and as someone cooking for myself how long things will keep and if they freeze well is really important to know for me and I’m not always sure.”

Jim, SVCS Student.
“Love the videos; cooking works very well in this format (as opposed to something like yoga or a golf swing or learning the violin where someone needs hands-on supervision to make sure they’re doing things right)”

Allison, SVCS Student.
“The template recipes are really helpful for thinking about cooking in simpler terms and finding inspiration to use up the last few items in your fridge without a detailed recipe.”

Rebecca, SVCS Student.
“I really appreciate how your (classes) have freed the way I cook. From reducing the number of ingredients, to using what I have on hand, and to your many, many other ideas: thank you. I love your approach and imagination. You have inspired me.”

Lauren, SVCS Student.
“At first it seemed expensive for what seemed to be a bunch of recipes. But I joined anyway because I loved your philosophy behind food and cooking. I can now say that it was worth the money.

Debbie, Stonesoup Virtual Cookery School Member.
“Definitely, worth every penny. Rather than focus on strict recipes, it teaches how to cook”

Mary A, Stonesoup Virtual Cookery School Member.
“I have lost 35 pounds so far by making Jules’ Reclaim Your Waistline principles the centerpiece of my weight loss program!”

Sarah, Stonesoup Virtual Cookery School Member.
I have never tried so many of the recipes from a website/book before. With your inspiration healthy and delicious cooking can be achieved on an every-day basis.

Lieve, Stonesoup Virtual Cookery School Member.
I like Jules no nonsense style. She doesn’t use fancy equipment and she uses a lot of veggies. It is easy and tastes fantastic! I can do the classes whenever I want (right now I lie in bed… It is 01:35 … My husband is snoring).

B Jonas, Stonesoup Virtual Cookery School Member.
I like that it’s at my own pace and I can watch the videos multiple times. Cooking classes around here can be $60-150 for one hour to learn 1 or 2 recipes. This is so much more cost effective!

Rebecca, Stonesoup Virtual Cookery School Student.You’ve really helped me move away from following recipes strictly. I belong to a CSA that supplies produce and meat – I am faced with every week – what’s in that bag? How can I get it to all match up? You’ve helped me be able to look in my refrigerator and cook based on what we have.”

Linda, Stonesoup Virtual Cookery School Student. “My husband gave me your cooking class as a Christmas present and I have had many entertaining hours in the last month navigating the classes and your videos. I would like to commend you on the fantastically simple and straightforward presentation you have created along with the absolutely beautiful photographs of the food.”

Amy, SVCS Student.
“Thank you a million for this course, it is absolutely brilliant. I really can’t remember the last time I was this excited about a purchase. I think I will also be getting a much happier husband thanks to this book :)”

Nic, SVCS Student.
“I used to spend ages planning all my meals to still feel like I didn’t have anything to cook. I felt undisciplined as I didn’t stick to my menu & wasted food cause I didn’t feel like whatever I planned. Now I can just make want I want, with what I have, with whatever time available. It makes u a more confident cook.”

Jade, SVCS Student.
“I am wasting far less, I am spending less money and can easily decide and then cook dinner every night.”

Anna, SVCS Student.
“The biggest change is that I don’t follow recipes to the T anymore – I am substituting different ingredients based on what I have on hand – a big change for me. I am wasting far less food. Also I am managing leftovers better again wasting much less.”

Nichole, SVCS Student.
“I am able to cook dinners that my family truly enjoys as many nights a week as I need to without repeating the same 5 dishes over and over and without buying a bunch of groceries that ultimately go to waste because our schedule changed.”

Larry, SVCS Student.
“I feel more confident with creating a meal with what I have on hand with the template recipes.”

Joules, SVCS Student.
Before finding this class I was frustrated by recipes. I would go to the store and by all these ingredients then end up with one thing to eat. I wanted cooking to be as easy as the green shakes I like to make: pick something that makes it creamy (banana, yogurt, etc), pick something to add bulk (apple, peach, cucumber), pick some greens (anything leafy), pick something flavorful (honey, mint, or raspberries, etc…). It’s based on stuff I already have, and always ends up good. The template recipes are just like this! Totally makes sense! I’m still not particularly good at cooking, but at least I’m actually trying now. 🙂 Not having strict recipes makes it more fun.”

Cherie, SVCS Student.
“I am less scared about starting with ingredients first, rather than a recipe first. I can look into my cupboard or fridge and know that something will evolve from my new found experience.”

Nic, SVCS Student.
“By far the most life changing class of yours I have done. Has totally changed how I work in the kitchen & my confidence towards cooking! Has freed me from my laborious meal planning on a Sunday. An unexpected result was it’s made me more intuitive towards food & in turn made me listen to what my body needs, rather than what my meal plan said.”

Katie, SVCS Student.
“I’m more willing to accept uncertainty upfront and cook on the spot based on what we have, when we got home from work & the weather rather than what’s in the old “plan””

Clara, SVCS Student.
“Less eating out, less bread eaten and more variety in what I ate, less anxiety, that I have no time to plan. I already was a pretty experienced and independent cook before, but I tended to fail at the everyday, ordinary meals. I overplanned, which consumed horrible amount of time, and resulted in weekly menus, which were too complicated for my schedule and amount of work. I was too tired to cook according to plan, even when I did follow it, usually ended up with many leftovers and ingredients that I didn’t use up. After couple weeks planning and cooking with the help of MYMP, I eat better, while putting much smaller amount of energy and focus to everyday meals.”

Mish, SVCS Student.
“It is very easy to follow, and I think this cooking mindset is one that you can adopt however you like. It has enabled me to be more flexible with what I’m going to cook. Instead of cooking a specific dish, I use the same ingredients for another dish that is similar but usually less time intensive.”

Nichole, SVCS Student.
“The best part is I’ve learned to use what I have on hand instead of rigidly following recipes.”

Nic, SVCS Student.
” I think it bridges you from being able to cook to being an intuitive cook. It’s given me so much confidence & when I’m following a recipe I can easily alter it to suit my needs.”

Claire, SVCS Student.
“I plan more efficiently, and I am more excited about what I am going to eat.”

Paula, SVCS Student.
“I have really become more confidant about “winging it” and my grocery bill has gone down!”

Christine, Master Your Meal Plan Owner.
“I think the template recipes are very liberating.”

Trish, SVCS Student.
“I feel much more freedom about my food planning. “

Bobbie-Jo, SVCS Student.
“I can make a delicious meal in 20 minutes at the end of a busy day – WOW. Also, I now have several types of protein/veg in the fridge at the beginning of the week, so I don’t resort to convenience food. It has been easier than I feared to accommodate our family’s various food sensitivities.

Carol, SVCS Student.
“This is my second time through the course. The first time I changed how I shopped for the week. But this time I changed to be even more pantry focused because I noticed I was still throwing away fresh food.”

Rod, SVCS Student.
“I’ve noticed less wastage, less trips to shops, more variety in our weekly menu”

Catherine, SVCS Student.
” I have less “dread” concerning “what I am going to eat.”

Michelle, SVCS Student
“It’s not the usual way to meal plan and even someone like me who loathes cooking, I’ve actually been cooking more.”

John, SVCS Student.
“I have already recommended it to my niece who is in college. For a beginning cook this course eases you into cooking, with the meal planning tips, and even how to shop, The template recipes are GOLD!!”

Ed, SVCS Student.
“Loved it. Less worried about making sure to use only the ingredients in a recipe, and much more willing to just throw something together.”

Michelle, SVCS Student.
“Your method introduces a lot more flexibility to meal planning, gives basic meal templates that can be adjusted to suit dietary preferences/needs etc.”

Kate, SVCS Student.
“Jules provides a really easy explanation of how to improve meal planning and makes cooking accessible and not intimidating.”

Carol, SVCS Student.
“I would certainly recommend your master your meal plan to anyone, as it makes cooking healthy meals quick and delicious.”

Gerry, SVCS Student.
“I can make meals without ANY PLANNING!”

Hannah, SVCS Student.
“It’s a great way to make deciding on dinner easier and to save money – there’s always something in the fridge/cupboard.”

Amy, SVCS Student.
“I have been using a few recipes regularly and for that alone, it’s totally worth it.”

Julie, SVCS Student.
” I appreciate having access to the materials for a full year so I can keep working on applying the lessons. I know that I am not good at changing everything all at once, so a little at a time is just right for me. “

Jenny, SVCS Student.
“The class encouraged me to analyse my own system and think deliberately about how I can incorporate your experience and wisdom into my kitchen in a way that will work for my family and lifestyle.”

Toni, SVCS Student.
“It enlightens and assists in minimising food waste and to teach better food choices.”

Jennifer, SVCS Student.
“Love your recipes! Easy to introduce to teenagers learning to cook and allow them to master their meal making.”

Claire, SVCS Student.
“For those who are interested in good nourishing, easy accessible food, apart from pizza, pasta and the fish and chip shop!”

HC, SVCS Student.
“Master Your Meal Plan is great for taking the burden of sifting thru websites/cookbooks for recipes with numerous ingredients. It creates a good habit.”

Nic, SVCS Student.
“I liked that depending on my week I could choose the best way to learn. Some weeks reading it was best, other weeks I could lay in bed & listen before I went to sleep. Having the all the options made it super easy to fit it into a busy life. “

Jenny, SVCS Student.
“I have been using up more fresh produce each week rather than having to throw it out. I have been shopping more effectively. I have improved my fridge organisation.”

Jean, SVCS Student.
“i like all your courses. they are very straightforward and always appealing and easy.”

Nichole, SVCS Student.
“I was wondering whether it would be worth the cost and whether it would be too difficult to implement into my crazy schedule. It was absolutely worth it by the way!”

Julie, SVCS Student.
“I knew I needed some teaching about how to do this business of feeding my family because I did not learn this skill as I was growing up. I had not taken an online class before, so I wasn’t sure how it might work out for me. It has turned out to be a valuable experience. I can keep working on the ideas taught through the Master Your Meal Plan class. The online lessons were really convenient, no babysitter required!”

Michelle, SVCS Student.
“I’ve become a bit more creative. Using what I have on hand first.”

Morva, SVCS Student.
“More comfortable with a bit less planning ahead and not figuring out exactly what to have every night a week in advance. Makes shopping faster. Beginning to get more comfortable with not having a specific recipe but using some templates and experimenting.”

Anonymous, SVCS Student.
“More variety, less wastage, less trips to shops, which my partner loves cause he hates shopping and in particular I don’t have the lunch panic or financial loss for paying for lunches every day.”

Joe, SVCS Student.
“They’re simple, healthy recipes anyone can prepare. I think a lot of people are intimidated when it comes to cooking and they get stuck in a routine of convenience, meaning prepackaged, processed foods.”

Susan, SVCS Student.
“I am somewhat better at accepting and using what’s on hand, rather than dashing out to get more.”

Hannah, SVCS Student.
” I am using leftovers more and am thinking more carefully about what I buy.”

Shawn, SVCS Student.
“Simplicity, Clarity. Fun and enjoyable. I CAN DO THIS!”

Elaine, SVCS Student.
“Thanks so much for all your hard work — your website is wonderful, I’m really enjoying it.
So far I’ve completed The Organized Cook and started Tired & Hungry Dinners. The podcasts/videos are fun to listen to while I’m commuting between New York City and my home in New Jersey. As a wife/mother with a full time job, I need all the help I can get to keep good food on the table every day – thank you!”

Liz, SVCS Student.
“I LOVED the ‘Organised Cook’ course & have found it’s made a real difference to my cooking habits – and hugely reduced my Thursday ‘urghh… there’s nothing here I want to cook’ attitude. So, thank you so much for that”

Bernadette, SVCS Student.
“TOC has lots of practical tips – very easy to read, (attractive layout helps) – and love the variations for each recipe to tweak for vego/GF/vegan friends.”

Micheal, SVCS Student.
“TOC has helped me get my cooking done quicker. It’s makes my cooking time more efficient.”

Pat, SVCS Student.
“I am planning ahead more often and have less anxiety when it come time to cook the evening meal. TOC helps simplify the meal planning and preparation process. And access to all of the healthy recipes is great!”

Joan,SVCS Student.
“I really enjoyed following the steps each week and seeing meals come together so well. Also, learning about how to handle leftovers was wonderful. I threw away almost no food because I learned what to do with extra ingredients. We are eating more veggies and beans and preparation takes much less time.”

André, SVCS Student.
“Since completing TOC I am eating more at home because now I need less time to cook.”

Anke, SVCS Student.
TOC means less last-minute stress, more relaxed cooking. I would recommend it because it reduces stress when it comes to cooking and shopping”

Smittens, SVCS Student.
“I really liked the suggestions for preparing veg (whole roasting roots or “ready to eat veg”) which are already giving me the opportunity to bring more veg on the table. And I am not worried anymore, when my family or visitors do not know exactly when they are coming home, because I know I can prepare the food, when I have the time and it just takes a little time to get the prepared thing ready for serving.”

Hannah, SVCS Student.
“The Organized Cook has great lessons that are easy to grasp!”

Samantha, SVCS Student.
I’m planning more often and are more confident in trusting my instincts. Being better prepared has kept us from eating out too often. Thank you and keep your great classes coming!”

Kathleen, SVCS Student.
“I LOVE the whole ‘Mise en Place’ concept and use it all the time now, it’s saved me so much time. This was a really terrific class!”

Liz, SVCS Student.
“This course really helped me to learn methods of preparing for the week ahead and it’s not complicated and ingredients are budget friendly. We are eating more vegetables, lentils and getting meals on the table doesn’t take as long. I’m also getting lots of compliments of dinners 🙂 I’m cooking more at home rather than eating out. It’s just quicker and tastier than takeaway food! We are so very thankful for your recipes, we have lots of new family favourites that are quick and easy!”

Candace, SVCS Student.
“Since taking The Organized Cook I’m more streamlined. I look at the food in my fridge and assess whether an item could be prepped ahead for bulk future use. This course is great for busy moms!”

Julie, SVCS Student.
“I am trying more new recipes & planning ahead ensure that I have meals that are easy to get on the table quickly.!”

Sharon, SVCS Student.
“I would recommend The Organized Cook to anyone who is not experienced cook and/or wants to eat more healthily, who works full time and feels there is not enough time in the day. It helps keep things simple, with not too many ingredients and helps to use stuff up that I already have!”

Martha, SVCS Student.
“HMM has really given me the tools to eat healthier and cook for myself at home more.”

Joan, SVCS Student.
“Since HMM I’m more mindful. I’m cooking more, and in many ways cooking more simply. I was macrobiotic for years and cooking always involved many dishes prepared in many styles. This was liberating. HMM is so doable, and for me, inspiring

Julia, SVCS Student.
“After using HMM I am enjoying cooking more simply and wasting less food, which saves lots of money. I am more organised and plan meals around using the most perishable items in my fridge first. HMM is great for anyone who enjoys food. It takes the stress out of cooking, especially for busy people, including families.”

Jade, SVCS Student.
“Since HMM my prep time has shortened, cooking time has shortened. We’re eating simpler, faster meals. I would recommend HMM because it is so simple AND practical

Nancy, SVCS Student.
“I am almost 60 y.o. and until now had no consistent shopping habits or plan. I knew what was healthy but not how to make it simple. I am thrilled to have found an approach that deals with habits so well. I’ve given myself permission to keep it simple and use the recipes as templates for adaptation.”

Cynthia, SVCS Student.
“One of my main reasons for taking this class is that my new (French) husband is a whiz in the kitchen…and I am not. This course has been perfect.
I’m a very process-focused, so organizing and planning my pantry, thinking about varying the shelf life of various foods, and thinking about planning a weeks’ worth of meals around a very simple shopping list has been a great re-focus/fine-tuning for me.
So: thank you thank you!! This course was just the boost I needed to feel more confident, to feel highly organized, and to keep the focus on HEALTHY.”

Christiane, SVCS Student.
“The webinar was so much fun! I liked to be guided through meal planning and cooking.The thing that strikes me most is, that I unintentionally earned a great amount of confidence in the kitchen. Now, most days I am nether overwhelmed nor stressed but… just cooking 🙂 That’ s great!”

Emma, SVCS Student.
The HMM course is packed with helpful information.The visual quality of the resources was really appealing. I also liked that the course used a variety of technologies (eg. webinars, email support, video training that was backed up by written info etc.). This kept it interesting.”

Petra, SVCS Student.
“This program is easy to follow and can be done at ones own pace. It is a pleasure to watch Jules explain and her enthusiasm is contagious. Jules approach is truly inspirational – a big thank you!”

Georgia, SVCS Student.
“I would recommend HMM as it is simple, healthy, quick and with very good recipes.”

Chris, SVCS Student.
“My favourite thing is the combination of your videos with the written recipes and guidelines and photos. You make it simple and easy, which I love!.”

Jen, SVCS Student.
The simplicity and versatility of healthy eating is what you get across so well in Healthy Meal Methods. It’s EASY to follow, and something that’s easy is likely to be maintained.”

Mimi, SVCS Student.
“I recommend HMM because having great recipes and quick videos of “how to” are very encouraging. Some of us have managed meals in a treading water kind of way…learning some pantry, & planning methods makes the recipes feel possible, the meals probable! I’m now cooking vegetables more frequently, and using a greater variety of vegetables. I love the tastes and flavors of the vegetable recipes and I get such good reactions that it is helping me cook more consistently.

Edward, SVCS Student.
“Since taking HMM I’ve become much less slavish to recipes and much more willing to just whip something together with the ingredients I have. I love the video training for each module. “

Margaret, SVCS Student.
“I would recommend HMM because I think that no matter what our age that we can all learn some new skills in the kitchen particularly in regard to how simple it is to serve up a healthy and nutritious meal. I felt like the whole process was very personal and that as the student you always felt important.”

Stephanie, SVCS Student.
“I would recommend HMM as it’s easy to follow. You give great advice and explain it well. You tell us how you’re doing it which seems like a “personal” conversation – one where you’re encouraging but not stuffing it down my throat. You don’t over complicate things.”

Louise, SVCS Student.
“HMM has helped my confidence in the kitchen.”

Daphne, SVCS Student.
“After HMM I’m more confident about winging things – I made a great coconut curry from scratch (ok well I didn’t pound out the paste) without looking at a single recipe just last night! I have recommended all of Jules classes and ebooks because I like how Jules think and how straight forward everything is.”

Karlie, SVCS Student.
“HMM is so simple and different to any other cooking course and/or cookery book I’ve encountered.”

Cynthia, SVCS Student.
“After doing HMM I’m starting to simplify, I now realize we don’t have to have 4 dishes for dinner during the week. If I can get a veg and a protein into a simple and healthy dish, that’s all it takes! I didn’t realize that cooking with so few ingredients could be so tasty…and it’s so easy. Jules’s outlook is so upbeat and engaging. I would recommend HMM to friends who already have a strong focus on ‘healthy eating” but who don’t have the confidence or skills (or don’t think they have the time) to cook for themselves. I can see how this program could make a dramatic impact for all of them.”

Liz, SVCS Student.
“HMM teaches even the best cooks simple ways to make their pantry organised, shop smarter and easily adapt recipes.”

Sally, SVCS Student.
“HMM is such a great resource and well written so that anybody could follow regardless of their ability in the kitchen”
