Philosophy Behind Sylvia’s Kitchen

Sylvia’s simple philosophy is to TASTE, EXPERIMENT and ENJOY fresh seasonal regional food that is cooked simply yet beautifully.

She believes the key to successful cooking is not found in the recipe, it is in learning the skills. She is committed to teaching you life-long skills and providing inspiration.

Sylvia believes we should take time to share and enjoy the dining experience with family and friends, an ideology encouraged by the Slow Food movement and also that of slower living.

She strongly believes you are what you eat* and that good quality fresh food coming from a natural organic or home-grown source is an investment in your future health and well-being.

Furthermore, with regular exercise, less stress, a well-balanced diet using fresh ingredients and interesting flavours, a glass of wine and a few morsels of sweet indulgence, we can all get more out of life and enjoy it to the fullest!

* Quote by Ludwig Feuerbach, nineteenth-century German Philosopher
