VanillaFood café has been a Noosa favourite since opening its doors within Belmondos Organic Market in 2014, and as part of Noosa Eat and Drink, chef and owner Nilla Tomkins launched a cookbook sharing some of the cafés favourite dishes.

VanillaFood The Cookbook is based on simple, wholesome, organic food that nourishes both the body and the mind. “I eat, breath and live creating beautiful food to keep my family, friends and customers healthy and happy, so to share this collection of recipes feels like sharing a part of myself,” said Ms Tomkins.

“I set out to share a collection of recipes that are simple and easy to create for those who love cooking at home and have really enjoyed including some interesting snippets about what inspired these recipes, tips and tricks to achieve the best outcome and how to get the best out of seasonal ingredients.”

Local celebrity chef Matt Golinski contributed the forward for the cookbook after personally testing each of the recipes.

“I have always admired Matt and his passion for fresh, local and seasonal ingredients which very much aligns with what we do at VanillaFood, so when the opportunity arose to have him test my recipes, I was delighted and honoured,” said Ms Tomkins.

Mr Golinski sees the book as a valuable resource for everyone, from the health-conscious, experimental beginner to experienced chefs looking to expand their repertoire of good quality, easy plant-based dishes.

VanillaFood The Cookbook is now available for purchase for $49.95 at VanillaFood, Belmondo’s Organic Market in Noosaville and at VanillaFood, 10 Lanyana Way in Noosa Junction. Copies can also be purchased online at and at a select number of reputable, local bookstores.
