People come to our classes for many different reasons - inspiration and new ideas, new skills, better health, more energy, a more harmonious way of eating…. Regardless of why you join us, our aim is to help you develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to make tasty, healthy food that suits you. Our workshops are practical and fun, blending innovative food concepts, hands-on recipe making, holistic nutritional information, applied chefing techniques and lots of tasting! We don’t use dairy, gluten or refined sugar in our food, making our workshops suitable for people seeking to avoid these products.
Group workshops are classes we have designed to be of interest to a wide range of people and are held regularly throughout the year. No previous experience is required to participate and, because the workshop topics are chosen to complement each other, you can take multiple courses without experiencing unhelpful repetition. The workshops range in length from 4 hours to multi-day courses. We limit the number of people in our workshops to help ensure a quality experience. It is also possible to hold workshops for your own group of friends/colleagues.
Private classes are customised classes designed around your own specific interests or dietary needs. They are often of interest to people wishing to up-skill in a particular area or whom are recovering from illness and wish to change their diet in a very specialised way. These classes can be one-on-one with you and Pablo, or they can be larger groups, held at our venue or yours. Contact us if you wish to discuss this idea further.
Trying to find enjoyable and innovative ways to grow a healthy team culture within an organisation can be challenging. Bringing together teaching, practical instruction and hands-on chefing, together with some Master Chef-style challenges and a whole lot of eating, our Team Building sessions will require your team to work together like never before….
“Incredible flavours”, “visually stunning”, “uplifting and subtle”, “energy-giving”, “filling-in-a-good way” – these are the kinds of expressions people use to describe Pablo’s chefing style, whether it is cooked food, raw food or a combination of both. Using high quality, nutrient-rich, organic, plant-based ingredients, we at Comida Viva create food that challenges conventional beliefs about ‘healthy food’ and transforms people’s beliefs about what they do and don’t like. Our chefing services span fine dining, general catering and private chefing, from small- to large-scale, and one-off to multi-day events. We are very experienced in creating menus to suit specific dietary requirements.
Do you want something special for that ‘special occasion’? Perhaps you have an upcoming birthday or are responsible for organising a work event? Or maybe you simply want to give your foodie friends a night to remember. For an event with a difference, why not invite us to prepare a multi-course fine dining extravaganza at a location of your choosing. The meal can include raw and/or cooked food, based on your vision for the event. We bring all food and equipment to your location, individually plate and serve each course, and clean up afterwards.
Event Catering - Work Events, Workshops & Retreats, Weddings….
From simple buffets through to individually-plated, multi-course meals, over one meal or multiple days, we have the experience to bring something special to your next event. Contact us to discuss menu possibilities tailored to your vision and budget.
Private Chefing & Dishes-by-Request
How appealing does it sound to have someone else make your weekly food, or at least some of it? Maybe you are short on time or energy, or would like to use your spare time and energy for things other than cooking. Or perhaps you are facing an unusual situation where you will be unable to cook for yourself for a while (eg post surgery recovery). Whatever your situation or dietary requirements, please contact us to explore how we can help meet your needs.
