The Mindful Belly : Conscious Pasta Class
Q: How do you make a dish taste better, without changing the ingredients?
A: Just add mindfulness.
Join chef Harry Bourne (Love Supreme, Quay, Hartsyard) and Head Psychologist Mary Hoang for a mindful pasta making class that will re-connect you with the heart of cooking.
If mindfulness is the practice of paying attention on purpose, then cooking is one of the most mindful activities in our lives. The focus and repetition of making pasta can be a therapeutic exercise for many, and not just because we’re dreaming of bolognese…
In this new series held at neighbourhood favourite Love Supreme, we bring the principles of mindfulness to the kitchen. You’ll discover how mindfulness can improve the way you cook and taste food, prepare three types of authentic pasta, then we’ll share our experiences over a feast.
