Simone is the epitome of dedication and hard work, carving out a niche in wine expertise and plant based cuisine. Her approach to life is admirable: Live well, eat well and consider your food choices carefully. I believe we all have something to learn from her.

Simone’s extensive experience tasting wine and Champagne coupled with her desire to help others learn more about this vast subject with language and humour that is easy to understand makes her extremely qualified to teach and inspire people to improve their wine knowledge. Especially, when it comes to Champagne, she has an outstanding palate and she generously shares all the inside tricks of the trade, which can very quickly transform you from a novice to a connoisseur in one session with her. Bravo, Simone for sharing the wine love.
Thank you Simone for your knowledge, passion, patience & kindness to me throughout my Health Concierge experience with you. Working 1:1 with Simone helped me breakthrough some areas where I previously felt stuck and the time spent with her made all the difference to achieving my health and lifestyle goals. I thoroughly recommend Simone as a great Chef, expert on wine and a mentor.
Simone’s clean eating program was my first but not last attempt to pursue a healthier lifestyle. The recipes are very delicious, they make you wonder what you have been putting into your body all these years aside from wholesome, natural and fresh ingredients. In particular, I enjoyed the green smoothies, breakfast puddings and daily encouragement. The culture and passion she puts into the program makes it totally fun and achievable.
Working with Simone 1:1 has been a fantastic experience that not only gave me a drop in weight but I also felt inspired, educated and motivated to try to incorporate what I learned into my everyday life. Simone’s advice, wealth of information, daily tips and snippets helped me to persist through what was a difficult first week but she guided and supported me throughout but I also felt confident and empowered to be moving out of my comfort zone. I loved Simone’s philosophy that you don’t need ‘labels’ and ‘rules’ and found her approach refreshing, fun and effective.
I certainly considered myself an amateur wine lover before I attended my first wine class with Simone. After the course, my palate and mind were open to a whole new world of wine that I would never have dreamed of and Simone’s network of winemakers opened the door to private tastings in Bordeaux, Bourgogne, Champagne, Rioja, Piedmont and the U.S.A. This course and the time spent with Simone learning from her wealth of knowledge was the key to opening up the world of wine to me.

Simone has THE program, for the wine loving, busy person, who wants to eat for energy and weightloss without giving up a gorgeous glass of wine.
I didn’t realise how badly I had been feeling until I started working with Sim. Within days I had lost the bloat, my skin started glowing and I had so much more energy. The food was delicious and so easy to prepare – plus I was never hungry! It really changed the way I now approach food and my whole lifestyle. Thank you so much!
I attended Simone’s introductory wine class and it was a fabulous experience, which started me on my wine journey that continues today. I started out as a beginner who really enjoyed wine but knew nothing about it and by the end of the course I had a deep understanding of wine varieties and regions that I previously knew nothing about. As well as this, my palate improved in leaps and bounds as I learned about and tasted wines from all the world and very quickly found that I was able to distinguish between different grapes and regions. The most important thing was that I had a huge amount of fun doing it and I am now confident in ordering wine wherever I go and have an extensive and diverse list of new favourites as well as a sense of adventure and curiosity to keep trying new wines. I cannot recommend this course highly enough for anyone who wants to uplevel their wine knowledge and have a great time doing it.
Simone makes healthy food so easy to follow, removing all the guess work. The recipes are refreshing, filling, super tasty and are very quick to throw together while the wine is a wonderful touch to any ‘diet’. I did not feel deprived of anything, on the contrary I felt nourished and alive. I live in Colorado, at 9,000 ft and its winter, so I was concerned about the ‘raw’ aspect of it, however there were plenty of cooked options as well. I also enjoyed a glass of wine here and there which made it feel more like a lifestyle than a diet. I loved it.
