Learn. Cook. Share.
Foodcentric recipes reflect a love of learning from all corners of the globe, so they are wide ranging but always with the signature Naomi twist. As a cookbook-aholic, I love that these twists usually involve less washing up and more flavour so I can get a delicious dinner on the table without stress while having a chat and a glass of wine. Even on days when cooking feels too much, I always turn to these recipes because I know they always work and put a smile on my face.
Foodcentric has rekindled my love of cooking and preparing food and has drawn my family together around the table again to enjoy restaurant quality food in the comfort of homely surroundings. It’s given me back my confidence in the kitchen and enabled me to impress my guests at dinner parties. I always rave to my family, friends and work colleagues about Naomi’s fool-proof recipes
I appreciate that Naomi's recipes bring a level of sophistication to home cooking that can be attempted with ease by the home cook. I love the diversity and range of recipes.To me, Foodcentric is a dependable, local source of well-written and approachable recipes that fill me with confidence and inspiration.
The flavour combinations that are achieved with everyday ingredients. As well as being easy to prepare, it is the flavours that are achieved that really sets Naomi's recipes apart for me.
Foodcentric recipes are adventurous with ingredients yet manageable with process. Modern takes on classics. Reliable and trustworthy, always fabulous and not too complicated.
Foodcentric gives me something to look forward to each week (especially during Covid in lockdown). I absolutely love participating in the online classes, learning, being inspired, having fun then getting to sit down to an amazing dinner in the end.
I love being part of a community interested in food and Naomi does a fabulous job presenting recipes and ideas and making people feel welcome- thank you!
Absolutely bloody delicious!

I enjoy Naomi's online cooking classes immensely. The classes are well-organised with all relevant information sent in... advance so that the cook-along runs smoothly. Naomi is an engaging teacher and generously shares her knowledge and skill with the class; her recipes are easy to master and . many of them have become family favourites in my home.read more

I was fortunate enough to enjoy a few hours cooking with Naomi and some friends (virtually) last Sunday. What a... delightful way to spend a few hours pulling together a delicious meal. Naomi made the whole experience so easy from booking, organising ingredients right through to putting the meal on the table. I loved hearing about her experiences of both the food we were cooking (Moroccan chicken) but also the places she had been. Oh and my family- being the beneficiary of a new take on Sunday night dinner were happy too. I would highly recommend this experience.read more

Naomi’s Cook-Along sessions are always fun and extremely informative. Ask Naomi anything about ingredients, food and... wine and she will impart a world of wisdom. Not to mention the dish made in just an hour - so delicious and such a breeze online in the session. Thanks Naomi 😊read more

Naomi’s cooking classes are such fun plus they are improving my cooking skills. All the meals I have prepared with... the classes are so flavoursome and have appealed to all the family (including a fussy teenager). All are on my ‘will make again’ list. I particularly like the extra little tips we get from Naomi – these tips are what helps a good cook become a great cook. Thanks Naomiread more

Who would have thought Thursday nights would become a highlight of the week! These cooking classes are great fun and... set an easy pace. You start at 6pm, relax with a wine with a great group while things bubble away, and you'll have a fab dinner on the table by 7pm - and it really will look amazing as Naomi also shows how to present things beautifully. I thought I'd have to do a lot of prep before the classes as I'm a slow cook, but it's not the case. You really do cook along easily in the hour and can ask for tips and questions all along the way. I've loved learning everything from restaurant style duck to Persian rice pilaf. I also highly recommend the leisurely Sunday slow cooks - you'll have a beautiful Sunday lunch and pro tips for leftovers. Think slow roast Greek lamb, then souvlaki with the leftovers and you know you'll be happy!read more

Cooking can sometimes be a chore for me but Naomi's cook-along classes have been so much fun! With her guidance I was... able to whip up delightful meals that I normally wouldn’t have attempted, ready right in time for dinner – AND enjoyed by all the family!I found it was easy to multi-task when listening to voice instructions during the classes and being able to glance over at the screen at any time allowed me to visually check that I was on track. It was also reassuring having Naomi there ‘live’ in my kitchen to answer any questions along the way.Looking forward to the next Thursday night cook-along!!!read more

Best $20 ever invested in myself. This was my first on line zoom class, I was not sure what to expect. I found myself... completely immersed in the experience. Fantastic collegiate experience, lovely to meet others over zoom and such fun!. Really helpful to be cooking with an expert. I learnt simple ways of tweaking dishes, so helpful! The class was structured and very easy to follow and to be honest it made cooking this family meal effortless. I was sad when the hour was up but very proud of what I created. I am a convert now! Naomi was very generous and thoughtful in the way she provided a shopping list before hand and the menu. Perfect for people who love to cook, want to learn more skills. For those who can't get out this online format provides some great social engagement and something to look forward to. Just do it!read more

Cooking classes with Naomi are fun, relaxed and educational! My favourite part of these classes, is I'm cooking from my... own kitchen (don't go anywhere!), and I get to eat dinner with my family straight after the 1 hour session is done at 7pm. They're affordable and something to look forward to each week. Thanks Naomi!read more
