Kyle Vialli who is arguably Europe’s Leading vitally Expert and Living/Food Pioneer, will dispel once and for all, the confusion and dismay that comes with the question “So what the Hell am I supposed to eat?”

Drawing from over 7 years of highly focused results-based research in the field of human nutrition, Kyle will reconcile the different arenas and systems that comprise the “nutritional maze” so as to guide us in making confident and empowered food choices for the rest of our enlivened lives.

Kyle will touch on the following

“Fruit!” “No Fruit!”

“Carb Loading!” “No Carbs!”…

“Sprouted Foods is ok, right?”…….

“Now I think someone once told me that this food on an empty stomach after noon is alright, or was that only if it I was blood type O!”…..

“Saturated fats or no fats at all, juiced or blended, hot or cold. To eat, or not to eat!”
Whether you have never studied nutrition, or whether you have been exploring the subject for decades, you will surely benefit from Kyle’s pioneering insights
“The purpose of nutrition is to fuel our lives, and the quality of our nutritional intake is highly implicated in the quality of our lives; it profoundly activates our ability to live our awaken”.

9pm – 10pm More Socialising and Mingling

10pm till late Music, Dance & Fun

Simone Fougère an Internationally acclaimed DJ formerly of Kitchen Party fame is now taking up residency at our East Side Raw Parties and events. Simone has spun records for the past 11 years, based out of London and travelling to Ibiza, Europe, Costa Rica, New Zealand, Japan and the United States with her signature sound of cheeky, hip swaying, grooving baseline, percussion tinged house and techno that really connects to you on the dance floor and makes you smile. Her philosophy is simple; share the energy and love through music and connecting with others. For 6 years Simone was also one half of Sweet * Vicious (AKA Sweet Mayhem) with Brian Monaco, a duo that mixed live rock music and house music side by side in their unique sets. They also started the internet house party ‘Kitchen Party‘, which was huge on the underground techno / house scene in London. The concept was about having quality, groundbreaking DJs such as Reboot, 2000 and One, Giles Smith, Christian Martin, Glimpse, Alison Marks, King Roc, Will Smith, Berkson and What to name but a few….. around to their house (or kitchen) party for a DJ set, which they then filmed and shared the video on their website so the world could experience the music and party too. Prior to Kitchen Party, she held residencies at Match Bar and The End in London , UK and played all over the city in clubs such as Egg, AKA, Cargo, Fabric (NZ Night), Fluid, Retox @ Sosho, Inigo, Plastic People, Bridge and Tunnel.
Simone is currently working on a remix with Alison Marks from Dessous and has launched a new internet music project called the Universal Love Project
Her latest mix entitled ‘Love Inspired’ can be downloaded and streamed here

This is a brilliant new style of event for the growing number of Raw/Living fooders, Healthy, Eco Conscious Londoners.

Tickets are £12 in advance, or £15 on the door.

Cookery School

…presents a day of…

Decadence & Nutrition

@ Tilton House, Firle, East Sussex BN8 6LL

Saturday 14th August 2010 10.00am – 6.00pm

Welcome to the first of many cookery classes hosted at the beautiful Tilton House, nestled in the heart of the Sussex Downs. The day offers the opportunity to learn over a dozen different vegan dishes, eat a decadent & nutritious breakfast, lunch and dinner, take home some of the dishes you prepare, visit the kitchen gardens as they spring into life for the summer ahead and also just relax and enjoy the wonderful surroundings of this gorgeous Georgian Country House.

On the day you will learn a wide range of fantastic plant based dishes, various different kitchen techniques & knife skills, get stuck in with hands on making, share in ideas on menu planning and building different dishes using some of the same ingredients and cooking methods. Not to mention enjoy some wonderful botanical based foods, that are not only bursting with flavour but also loaded with health benefits.

On the day…

First start the day by learning how to make raw nut milk and then enjoy some homemade granola. Then learn how to make the granola and also make your own granola bars to take home.

Raw Pear “Cheesecake”We will then show you how to make a decadent raw and dairy free pear ‘cheesecake’, which we will share for dinner.

Next some Tomato, red lentil and basil soup with lemon cream. Served with an olive and rosemary flatbread that you will make yourself, choosing from a wide variety of flours – to demonstrate how different flours give differing results.

Lunch will be served as soon as we have made some velvety smooth cashew based ice cream to have for dessert.

After lunch you will have a chance to visit the kitchen gardens, that will be brimming with food – some of which we will utilise.

Next we will prepare a red lentil and mushroom lasagne using the base mixture from the soup we already made for lunch, demonstrating how to make very different dishes from exactly the same base ingredients. We will also make a cashew ‘cheese’ sauce – that is an excellent substitute for the typical dairy version.

Everyone will then prepare a stunning canapé I like to call The med-Jewel, using dates, avocado and some other nice things.

Some quick easy salads to serve with dinner and then onto the really fun part – truffles. After a demonstration of truffle making, you will get the opportunity to make your very own vegan chocolate truffles experimenting with different flavours and ingredients as you like – these will then be saved for you take home, assuming they make it that far!!!!!

After all that, dinner will be served with nothing left to do except enjoy the food you helped create and share in the days creativity.

You will also go home with full recipes for everything made, the treats you made yourself and perhaps other goodies?

The day is priced at £100 but as an introductory offer, if booked before August 1st we would like to offer it for only £90. Places are limited but don’t worry if you miss out this time there will be more opportunities to follow, for future dates please contact us.

For more information about people behind the day please contact John Bayley at or call 07786 226220.
