Sacred Chef Recipe Book Just Published
“I hope that you, will find some great recipes here to try and perhaps add to your own culinary repertoire. Recipes are like magic spells to incant with your hands, touching, inspiring, chopping, stirring and then serving. The dance of the kitchen, I call it, weaving wonder with saucepans and knives. Good cooking involves a flow of energy, as you engage with matter and time, coordinating the arrival of a number of different elements.
Your cooking experience will ultimately be defined by your attitude towards it – I hope that this book will turn you on to the very satisfying pleasure that comes from sacred cooking, eating and drinking. May the cooking gods smile upon you!”
Sudha Hamilton aka The Sacred Chef
Cooking Classes are Currently Suspended due to Homelessness
We have found a new home and we will be resuming classes on the 1 Sept 2014.
“Hi Sudha. I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful day on Monday. Di and I had a wonderful time, not only cooking but enjoying your & Colin’s company. Besides learning a lot about food, preparing food and cooking food, we enjoyed so much eating the food. The whole package was amazing and we would recommend it to anyone. We hope to come there again and maybe learn the seafood laksa, a personal favourite.
Thanks again Sudha.

“Thanks for your work on our event on Friday, Sudha. The food was delicious, and our guests were very satisfied and commented on how much there was, and how good :)”
“Sudha recently catered for my 50th birthday (18 family guests) at a lovely rented beach house at Moffat Beach. Canapes and tapas followed by noodle box mains. Can not speak highly enough of the quality and quantity of the food, its freshness and creativity. Sudha just zoomed into an unknown kitchen and produced it all like clockwork. Food really was of a supreme restaurant standard. A lovely guy to boot, as was his waitperson. Hire this man.

I am still sitting here enjoying the feast of today’s cooking class with you. Leigh and I are have not stopped talking about how much we felt the value of your time and the quality of the food and the experience of gaining knowledge from a very experienced chef like yourself was a 10/10.
Where could you go and gain knowledge about the food you like to eat, Learn how to cook the food you like to eat and then be served this beautiful feast and enjoy with a nice glass of wine with some great company. You have gone above and beyond very, very impressed. Such great value for money and a great idea to share with a loved one or as a group.
We will be back and we will be telling everyone about our experience at the Sacred Chef.
Come on a culinary adventure – cooking will never be the same again!
A Great Way to Enjoy a Day on the Sunshine Coast in Maleny!
House Therapy is about You! It is a manual for good living and understanding about ourselves.
We are still talking about the fantastic time we had with you last Sunday at the Cooking Class! We have, in fact, lost count of the number of people we have spoken to about it. Everyone has been very interested and many have said they want to take part in a class. We hope sometime to organize a group of our friends so that we can share the experience with them.
Thank you for the way you explained every step to us and assisted us as required. We have already used many of your “tips” in our own cooking and have cooked one of the dishes from your menu – the Thin Crusted Pizza. It was just as delicious second time round!
Everything about the day was perfect – the use of good quality ingredients, the way in which you helped us (but letting us think it was our own creation), the conversation and, of course, the meal itself.
We are currently preparing a review which we will submit to Trip Adviser.
Attached is a photo taken on the day.

“I chose to take the most important people in my life to The Sacred Chef Cooking School as an opportunity to enjoy our own company in a totally different context than the day to day routine. Well, we gained so very much more. The mocking of my slow prep skills was fun (for a while) however, that was the point. We all got to shine in all our special ways and laugh at ourselves when sometimes we forgot to in our daily life. I heartily recommend The Sacred Chef Cooking School – it is about figuring out what it means when people say:- “It’s the journey, not the Destination” Thank you Sudha
PARTY CATERING REVIEW by non-computer & social media type customers:
We aren’t on Facebook being rather boring people——however we do know great food, smiling service and value for money when we experience it, as we did when you catered for our 70th birthday party.
And that’s not to forget the absolute professional way that you went about working in our home, we have never had such a clean sink after a party and with such little disruption to our normal party antics.
All of our guests are wanting to know when the next party is and will you be providing the food again, even those who came from the Barossa Valley!
Please feel free to use this on your web page, our house guests only left a few days ago, which is why we have been a little tardy in responding, we did however leave your plates outside your front door on the following Sunday (no-one home), hope that you got them alright.
Cheers and thanks again.
Brian and Marion Robertson”

” Dear Sudha,
Thank you for making my 30th birthday a special one!

Just to thank you for the cooking class yesterday.
I really enjoyed the experience, having done several in this area, I can rate yours the best I have been to. Your course offered a more casual teaching atmosphere which for me made it a great experience, both in the making of the food and in the eating of it, as well as being in the company of a great group of people.
Thanks also to John for his efforts, for a ‘beginner’ he did a great job.
Look forward to catching up on another class sometime in the future.
“Thank you for a wonderful experience with loads of fine foods, and your company!
Make it deliciously easy on yourself!
Sudha means purity – for pure flavours, pure ingredients and pure joy!

The Sacred Chef Seafood Noodle Night at the UpFront Club in Maleny was a great success. Booked out before we opened on the night, the heat was intense in the kitchen, as we plated-up plump, snapper, Thai fishcakes and prawn dumplings. The fresh seafood laksa was the undisputed dish of the night, with grilled tiger prawns, snapper fillets, crab claws and mussels piled high on a delicious spicy coconut noodle soup. Fresh lime and lemongrass, sesame vegetables and toasted seeds, slow roasted lamb shanks in a red curry sauce, crisp bok choy and Vietnamese mint – these were just some of the aromatic flavours we played with.

Sacred Chef Catering offers unique, handmade, artisan food, prepared in Maleny or onsite, especially tailored for your function, seminar or event. This means that you and your guests will enjoy delicious food, prepared from the freshest produce available and created with love and individuality. Food like this is available nowhere else on the sunshine coast and will make your day or night a memorable one.
Sacred Chef Catering, in Maleny and on the sunshine coast hinterland, specialises in seminar and conference catering – as we have a great deal of experience in this field. We also enjoy festival and retreat catering, creating healthy and alive cuisines, which contribute to the success of these events. Whether your catering requirements are big or small, or more personal like a birthday party or wedding feast, or perhaps something else entirely – Sacred Chef Catering is the right choice. We make food magic, and we make it on time and without the stress!
Organic choice menus are available on request, and Sacred Chef Catering also specialises in a range of specialist dietary options, such as gluten free, sentient, vegan and vegetarian. When you have a lot of experience cooking for clients with specific dietary requirements you can create delicious food within the necessary parametres – for more traditionally trained cooks and chefs that is a big challenge.
The Sacred Chef was WellBeing Magazine’s food editor for five years and produced a number of annual cook book supplements for that venerable publication. Prior to that the Sacred Chef had a rich history as restaurateur and cafe owner in Sydney, Adelaide and Perth. The Sacred Chef began his cooking journey in Zorba the Buddha’s kitchen.
Sacred Chef Catering was thrilled to fill the platters, at Peta’s 40th Birthday Party on Saturday night 18 December in Maleny at the Top Cottage (what a great view from the deck!), with BBQ seafood and gourmet sausages and canapes. We beat the rain that night and everyone really enjoyed the food and French champagne – which flowed all night.
The snapper Thai fishcakes done on the BBQ grill were a big hit, along with the leek and olive goat’s cheese pastries. A special night that the Sacred Chef felt honoured to be part of – thanks Peta!
