About Food Alchemy
Vanessa Jean Boscarello Ovens, Grad. Dip Applied Psychology, has a raw food and wholefood cooking pedigree that is steeped in family tradition.
Born to a Sicilian father and Maltese mother, Vanessa’s love for organic, wholesome food bursting with natures flavours and goodness comes from generations of passionate, authentic ethnic cooking experience combining her Nonna’s natural herb medicine wisdom and her Nonna’s and Nana’s celebrated skills in the kitchen.
Vanessa has coupled this generational wisdom and experience gifted to her by her forebears with the learning's gained over years assisting perhaps Perth’s best known wholefood chef, Jude Blereau.
Her foodie heritage coupled with her innate skill in the kitchen, an uncanny knack of inventively combining ingredients in ways that will surprise and delight the most discerning palettes, have turned her many hundreds of past students from interested and inquisitive seekers of new foodie knowledge and skills into raving fans.
Vanessa’s joy filled teaching style emanates from her deep connection to the earth, her passion for returning our bodies to their natural healthy state through organic nutrition and her generosity of spirit.
Her background in psychology coupled with her career spanning two decades in aromatherapy, sound healing and raw and wholefood cooking give her a unique insight among her peers delivering holistic outcomes for her students.
