Donna Hay is an Australian cooking and lifestyle icon, and following the wrapping up of her eponymous magazine title last year (after 100 issues!), she’s showing no signs of slowing down. This month, the kitchen guru takes her skills off the page, and into a festival setting!
The Food + Wellness Festival runs from 11-13 October at the renowned Bondi Pavilion, and combines health programs with delicious food. From pilates classes to cooking workshops, fresh produce markets and sunset drinks – this festival is all about nourishment.
Donna highlights ‘this three-day event is essentially my approach to food – and how I try to live in this beautiful city of ours.’ But don’t be deterred by the greenery, there are still plenty of treats. Each day ends with sunset drinks at the Well Chilled session, and Vittoria coffee is available for a gold coin donation which goes to Two Good, a social enterprise that supports domestic violence survivors and women’s refuges.
The festival is free to attend, so bring your appetite and your yoga pants!
