Healthy Food Workshops


In the Rosewell Centre’s Teaching Kitchen

Learn how to make healthy foods

The Rosewell Centre offers teaching in making and preparing healthy food options which participants can effortlessly incorporate into their daily lives.

We run a range of healthy food workshops from our teaching kitchen including how to make lacto-fermented pickled vegetables, herbal elixirs and sourdough bread. Please check our timetable and events page for upcoming healthy food workshops or contact us.

How to make lacto-fermented vegetables

What are Lacto-Fermented Foods?

You may not be familiar with the lacto-fermentation process, but it is essentially the process that produces pickles, kimchi and sauerkraut that you may see on supermarket shelves. However, it is a straightforward and enjoyable process to learn to make these healthy snacks and meal accompaniments from regeneratively grown, local and seasonal produce with minimal food miles. It requires nothing more than a bit of knowledge, salt, vegetables and water.


The lacto-fermentation process works because bacteria that could be harmful to humans cannot tolerate much salt, while healthy bacteria can. Lacto-fermentation eliminates the bad bacteria in its first stage and then lets the good bacteria get to work in the second stage.

In our pickling classes you will learn about what types of foods work well in lacto-fermentation, how exactly the process works, its nutrient values and health benefits as well as enjoying the distinctively tangy flavour of the lacto-fermented foods that you have made.

The Rosewell Centre also produces its own range of lacto-fermented pickles which are available to purchase in our online shop, or just pop into the Centre to pick up a jar or two!

Join one of our friendly healthy food workshops

Our fun and friendly healthy food workshops are held regularly at the Rosewell Centre and run from other venues around the Castle Bytham, Grantham, Stamford, Bourne and Oakham areas.

You can take part in one of our Healthy Food Workshops on a one to one basis or as part of a larger group class. We can also include a healthy food workshop as part of a wellbeing retreat in the glorious South Lincolnshire countryside.

Meet our Teaching Kitchen Chef

The Rosewell Centre brings together a group of dedicated people, all with the aim of promoting your health, well being and personal development.



Founder and Director

Sue Hix founded The Rosewell Centre in 1996 as a place to celebrate health and wellbeing from a holistic perspective.  She has over 30 years experience of teaching healing and health practises and provides Shiatsu, Tai Chi and Yoga, as well as organising Rosewell Retreats.

In these times Sue is focusing on bringing inspiration, healing and connection, while respecting diversity of values and beliefs.  Solutions to well being that are low cost and user friendly which can be shared widely to democratise transcendence into new consciousness.  Key elements of focus are – regulating respiration to shift physical and psychological states, – teaching how the nervous system regulates the body – presenting learning about hormone drivers and the effect of foods or substances which change our feelings – bringing transformative music into the arena, which soothes the soul and opens us to the capacity for awe.


What our Customers Say

Kirstine - The Rosewell Centre

"Sue is committed to the wellbeing of humanity and living proof of the benefits of Tai Chi, Qi Gong, Yoga and Shiatsu.”

Jo - Yoga

"I find yin yoga is both energising and re-balancing. It is a great tonic to a busy day and I had the best night's sleep in years after one of Sue's sessions" 

Beth - 14 Classical Meridians for Equine Energy Work Book by Sue Hix

Thank you for sending it out! A few of the people on my course have your book and it's really helpful and clear!

Justin - Aromatherapy

“Aromatherapy massage helped me no end.  Thank you.”

Hilary - Shiatsu

"I am so glad I have discovered Shiatsu massage after so many years. Shiatsu was a revelation unlike any massage I’ve ever experienced. Sue locates and works on particular areas of tension/stress - where pain gathers. The whole body shiatsu experience is intensely relaxing and therapeutic. I recommend thoroughly Shiatsu at the Rosewell Centre."

Viv - Time Out for Peace event


Thank you for such a special afternoon, it just seems this is how life should be all the time.
Came away feeling totally comfortable and relaxed.

Thank you.

Hil - Aromatherapy

"I have had many aromatherapy massages before but Rose’s is different in a most significant way - she has a deeper understanding of what you and your body needs and her tailored way of matching your needs is unique in my experience - a very gentle and therapeutic experience. I recommend it without reservation."

Raymond - Yoga

“I have been participating in Sue’s early morning yoga class for many years. It is very enjoyable as the routines vary with new poses and ideas, the most recent addition being aerial yoga.  The use of silk hammocks adds a new dimension to practice, challenging different muscles to traditional yoga postures.”

Vanessa - Gong Bath Meditation

“I had a lovely meditation with Sally’s Ocean Therapy Gong Bath, the sounds were very evocative.  I heard the waves on a beach and whales singing! All sounds were very relaxing and I felt 6 inches taller after. It was well worth the drive from Wiltshire!”

Elizabeth - Yoga

"Although I had attended regular yoga classes over the years, I hadn't heard of Yin Yoga before so I thought Id give it a try! Sue provided us with the most comfortable, resting environment in which to practice this type of yoga and I felt that her wonderful soft and gentle tone and approach to the class enhanced the whole experience for me. Sue has such a vast amount of knowledge and understanding which I found incredibly useful as we went through our positions and I enjoyed both challenging myself and the wonderful opportunity to relax and reflect.  As if this wasn't enough, after each session, I had an exceptionally restful nights' sleep!  I would highly recommend this type of yoga and Sue."

Caroline - 14 Classical Meridians for Equine Energy Work Book by Sue Hix
