She periodically offers cooking classes for locals to learn how to make a few of her famous recipes, namely her incredible pavlovas, which she sells at a nearby café.

Happy 2018 and happy healthy eating season! Ha.

I am not doing Whole 30 or Paleo or keto or eliminating sugar, so my sympathies to you who are. I’ve gone sugar-free before and it’s not easy! But you’ve got this!
