The eBook has arrived! New classes and a public lecture

Hi there.  I’m so happy to be able to let you know The low FOODMAP cookbook has finally made it into eBook format!  We have updated a few recipes and the food lists to reflect the FODMAP research done at Monash University.  10% of profit  from the book sales will continue to go back into this research.

Right now you can find it on the iBookstore here.

Very soon it will also be available on Kobo and Amazon (for Kindle)…stay tuned.

Our household has only recently joined the ranks of iPad owners.  We were trying to put it off for as long as possible, although we knew the days were numbered with one not-so-little person off to high school next year; iPads are on the booklist!  But the Pad arrived home a couple of weeks ago in its big white box, much to the delight of our 3 younger family members.  We let them have a good go over the weekend, and then promptly changed that 4-digit code to one they don’t know!!…and still don’t know.  Moderation is our aim.

When I have managed to nab the Pad for a little while, it usually goes straight to the kitchen bench to stand up nicely with a recipe on display as I cook up a storm.  I do love my paper cookbooks but I am also enjoying being able to easily read recipes on-screen and see pictures of what I’m cooking.



A couple of other things I wanted to let you know about…


Firstly, there has been a change of plans for my Low FODMAP cooking classes.  A decision was made to run half-day workshops instead of weekly evening classes.  Some of you told me you would love to come but were unable to get there in the evening each week.  Hopefully the new days and time will be more suitable.  So, here are the details:

Session 1 – Dinners, quick meals and stocks

Saturday September 7th from 9.30am – 1.30pm

Session 2 – breads, snack boxes and deserts

Saturday October 19th 9.30am – 1.30pm

$58 per session including notes and tastings.

233 Southern Road, Heidelberg West

Phone (03) 9450 2665 to reserve your place.


I also wanted to let you know about an upcoming event which should be of interest to us all.  Dr. Peter Gibson, Head of Gaastroenterology in The Central Clinical School (Monash University) and The Alfred Hospital, will be presenting a public lecture titled

Beating the bloat: the FODMAP diet and Irritable Bowel Syndrome.”  

Date: Wednesday 30 October 2013
Time: 6.00 pm for 6.30 pm start. Lecture for 45 minutes followed by Q&A session.
Venue: AMREP Lecture Theatre, adjacent to the BakerIDI Institute at 85 Commercial Road, Melbourne 3004, 200 metres east of the main Alfred Hospital entrance. See map.
Cost: Free
RSVP: CLICK HERE. Please RSVP by Friday 25 October for catering purposes (note: Food will be low FODMAP)
Enquiries: ph +61 3 9903 0026; ph +61 3 9903 0526

Click on the lecture title above to find out more about this event.  This lecture should be a great way to get up to speed on any new research developments and current recommendations in managing IBS and a low FODMAP diet.  I have already reserved my spot, so perhaps I will see you there!
