There will be a variety of recipes from cakes and biscuits to fruit jellies, tarts and mousses for all occasions and seasons.

Desserts don't have to be unhealthy and we don't have to sacrifice on taste to make them nutritious.  For many years now, macrobiotic desserts have been enjoyed the world over, providing pleasure and comfort to many people without relying upon dairy or refined sugar.  Lara has herself brought up her family using the sugar-free and dairy-free recipes on this course.  These desserts really deliver on taste, are sumptuous and our students tell us how much they enjoy them.
