Would you like to learn more about fermentation?

The Sunshine Coast Gut Clinic loves to talk about food! Yes, we’re all about the pleasure and joy that food delivers. And we love to cook.

Luckily for us, the team at the SCGC has a varied background that enables us to offer a range of food related events.

Lydia has a Russian heritage and she’s an old-school kinda lady.  She loves to prepare things from scratch and she grew up watching her mother doing the same.  She is obsessed/pre-occupied (you pick the word) at the moment with fermented vegetables and her kitchen cupboards are hiding many jars in various stages of fermentation.  With her Russian blood she’s got cabbage covered – her sauerkraut and kimchi are delicious.  And in her spare time, she loves nothing better than baking delicious, long slow fermented sourdough bread.  All of these interests she would love to share with you.

Naomi is the quintessential mother earth figure, caring for her family with zeal and commitment.  Her meals are delicious, nutritious and they are all 100% gluten free.  For some GF inspiration, check out her insta @naomi_sunshinecoastgutclinic. She also take people on tours through a local supermarket showing them gluten free options that are healthy and affordable.  If you are interested in a tour, send us an email through the contact page.

More through necessity than anything, Naomi began experimenting with gluten free sourdough baking.  In Lydia’s kitchen they grew a GF starter and then Naomi took over the GF bread making duties.  Her GF bread is delicious, easy to make and inexpensive.  And she offers gluten free bread making classes where you will not only learn how to make your own loaf of GF sourdough bread but you’ll receive your very own starter to take home.  Send us a message through our link on the contact page.

Finally we have Tyrone, our chief kombucha brewer.  Tyrone is a chef, a nutritionist and a psychologist plus hes a really nice guy.  Tyrone loves the outdoors, health, fitness and entertaining.  Hes also a current post graduate student so his commitment to lifelong learning is obvious in everything he does.  Given how busy he is, we’re very lucky to have Tyrone available to deliver workshops here at the clinic.  Keep an eye on our program of events for upcoming kombucha workshops.


And we can come to you : –

If you’ve got a group of friends who are interested in – fermented vegetables and pickles, sauerkraut, sourdough bread (wheat based or gluten free) making or kombucha brewing, drop us an email and we can organise a time to come to you.  If you’d like a Christmas get-together with a difference, a festive fermentation party might just fit the bill.
