Tracey Bennett (aka The Reckless Foodie!)

Tracey Bennett is Jason’s business partner and wife of 25 years, mother of their four children, grandmother to that little cute thing and a well-respected plant-based wholefood chef. She personally created over 300 recipes for the online programmes that she and Jason ran over the last decade. Over many years, she has perfected the art of feeding a hungry family with solely plant-based meals, while keeping them strong healthy and asking for more of her delicious, fresh creations!

Tracey is passionate about teaching people how to create simple, tasty plant-based food that can be prepared easily – and is affordable. For Tracey, cooking is both therapy and art; she gets into her flow when in the kitchen and infuses all her food with loads of aroha. She adores connecting with others and talking plant-based food! These days you will often find her either teaching a cooking workshop, catering for an event, workshop or retreat, or co-leading a fasting retreat with Jason. Email Tracey direct here with any questions you may have. She is currently working on her first cookbook; which Jason believes is gonna be the best cookbook ever.

Plant-Based Cooking Workshops & Retreats

One of Tracey’s passions is teaching half day and one day cooking classes from her home kitchen out West. They are super fun, super relaxed and the feel and vibe of the day is sharing, learning feasting and laughter. Her topics range from main meals, decadent desserts, sensational salads, delicious raw treats and more. See our events page for Tracey’s upcoming offerings or email her here personally with any questions.

“Confession – I’m addicted to Tracey's fabulous plant-based workshops! I’ve now been to three and feel very confident in cooking these easy plant-based recipes, as does my husband who attended two of them with me. It's such a fun day with Tracey and like-minded people; cooking, eating and taking in all the awesome information that Tracey has to share. On a couple of occasions Tracey's hubby Jason (well know author/health researcher/speaker) has popped in and talked with us all about health and living your best life! The workshops are relaxed and fun, and for a non-cook gal like myself, new to a plant-based diet this was very appealing. Can’t wait for the next one!!” -Monique, 2020.

“I hired Tracey Bennett, aka The Reckless Foodie to cater for a five-day residential Tantra Training. Tracey was in charge of organising the menu, all the food, and being on-site for the five days to prepare, cook and clean-up the food. It was such a delight to handover all aspects to Tracey, trusting that she would deliver exactly what was needed. The food was outstanding; she delivered a wonderful nourishing variety, beautifully presented, and her presence in the kitchen and in the house was warm, energising and supportive. Everybody loved the food, and each meal turned into an event. The cake she made us for our final celebration was outstanding! Through the entire process of negotiation, delivery and invoicing, Tracey was easy to deal with. Her communication skills are excellent and she thoroughly understood the brief and what was needed at all times. I would highly recommend hiring The Reckless Foodie for your next event”- Kara-Leah Grant, Tantra Teacher, Presenter, Author, 2020.
