You care about eating better.

You want to prepare delicious meals to support your healthy lifestyle.

But here and now, you find yourself getting home from the office too tired to cook, and falling back on unhealthy eating patterns.

Cooking has become another source of stress and overwhelm.

So you rely on takeout too much.

And even when you do make an effort, you find yourself repeatedly checking a recipe as you reluctantly cook a meal.

Or you end up with rotten veggies in your fridge.

The thought of ‘creating’ a meal feels like it has one too many steps to follow at the end of a long day.

If only cooking felt simple, relaxing, and even maybe…FUN?

Here’s the good news…

YOU aren’t the problem.

The problem is relying on recipes because they don’t make cooking simple.

So of course it feels hard.

And the even better news is – there is another way.

AND there are only 2 skills you need to become someone who enjoys cooking as much as they enjoy going out to their favourite restaurant.

To become someone who feels just as confident about pulling together a quick dinner as they feel about driving a car.

And these 2 simple skills…

It’s possible for YOU to learn them.

You just need someone to show you how.

Let me introduce myself…

JC Sinatra Hat Cheeky Smile-2

I’m Jules Clancy, a food scientist and wine maker turned cookbook author and certified cooking coach.

I’m also a huge food lover who finds cooking joyful and fun.

But it didn’t start out that way.

When I started out, I taught myself to cook by following recipes to the letter.

Then over time, I created flexible frameworks so I can pull together simple tasty meals WITHOUT recipes. These muscle memory meals help me bring playfulness into the kitchen.

That’s why, these days, taking care of myself and whipping up a meal automatically feels relaxing and fun.

Oh and I’m also a minimalist. So I keep things simple. My minimal effort meals use 6-ingredients and take 20-minutes or less.

I want to help you get to this magical place where cooking feels simple, relaxing and fun. That’s why I’ve created the exact program to help you make this your reality too.

“Yesterday it really clicked that I AM really becoming a joyful cook. At suppertime I cobbled together what was the best meal I’ve eaten in ages! It was yum! Thanks Jules, I’m loving this!” – Carina

Become a Joyful Cook with
Just 2 Simple Skills:

1. Seasoning

Seasoning is a HUGE deal. It’s the secret to making food taste A-MAZ-ING every time. Ask any chef and they’ll tell you it’s the number one skill you need to be great at cooking.

I’ll teach you to trust your instincts and listen to your taste buds. Even if you’ve never cooked a day in your life, you’ve been eating every day for decades. You know what tastes good to you. I’ll help you tap into that knowledge so you aren’t starting from scratch.

With fun interactive tasting exercises you’ll experience exactly what a difference it makes to play around with salt, acid, sweetness, umami, fat, heat AND my secret weapon for mass deliciousness – flavour BOMBS. You’ll be surprised how quickly and easily you will gain confidence to fix problems as they arise.

2. Muscle Memory Meals

Instead of blindly following recipes, in Joyful Cooking you’ll build your repertoire of simple, flexible meals you know by heart. Things like abundance bowls, slow cooking, pizza, easy eggs, curry, oven suppers and more.

These Muscle Memory Meals help you become someone who can quickly pull together something fresh and satisfying in less time and effort than it takes to pick up takeout.

We go in depth on teaching you the science behind exactly how and why each meal works so you’ll be able to course correct when problems arise.

___________________________

As you master these two powerful skills, you’ll also build these bonus skills along the way:

+ Confidence to Problem Solve. So even when things don’t turn out as expected, you’ll know exactly what to tweak so you still get compliments. Because honestly, we are all motivated by praise ;)

+ Experimental Mindset. Instead of seeing cooking as a chore we bring playfulness and fun into the kitchen so making dinner becomes one of our favourite times of the day.

+ Sauces. After seasoning and flavour bombs, sauces are my other secret weapons for bringing magic into every day meals.

+ Substitution. Helps you improvise so you make do with what you have. No more buying ingredients you will only use in one recipe and then not know what to do with them.

+ Combining Flavours. Learn the classic flavour combinations from around the world so you aren’t having to reinvent the wheel every time you cook.

+ Planning + Organisation. Even if you like to be spontaneous I’ll show you how to develop self-motivating habits that make your life easier.

+ Investment Cooking. The delicious secret to being efficient and getting the most out of the time you are already spending in the kitchen.

“I hesitated before booking this course, not entirely convinced that it would enable me to achieve my dream of being able to consistently prepare a variety of delicious meals without recourse to recipes or stressing over meal planning and the associated (dreaded) grocery shop.

How wrong was I!

Jules’ has so many skills to share and does so with pure excitement as she genuinely wants you to succeed. Hand on heart, this course has changed my life. In just a few short months cooking has genuinely become an absolute joy for me, every single day.” – Nicola

Become a Joyful Cook
15-Minutes at a Time

Minimal Time Investment – all you need to get results is 2 hours a month for learning and 15-minutes a week for practicing your new skills. But you’re probably already spending that practice time cooking anyway, right? So it’s not actually going to take more time.

“I’m so pleased with myself! I avoided what was once a common fall-back on junk-type food when I was tired or didn’t feel like eating what had been planned. And, on top of that, I created a satisfying meal with ingredients I had available. This is pretty amazing!
I’m really grateful for what I’m learning — thank you, Jules!”
– Paula

“Before I would have bought some prepared food when I was feeling too scared to cook. Resulting in rotten veggies in my fridge. But now I do it differently.

And the magic ingredient that made that possible was: CONFIDENCE, trusting that I will find/ already know the solution. (The clue was not finding the “right” recipe but changing my thinking patterns.) Thank you Jules !!!

P.S. No rotten veggies in my crisper for two weeks in a row now!”. – Joyful Cook

Want to change but afraid to invest because you don’t have a good track record
for following through?

If that’s you, coaching is exactly what will make the difference because you are supported with gentle inbuilt accountability every step of the way. And you’ll be learning new skills AND changing how you think about yourself.

No Self-Discipline Necessary. We DON’T rely on willpower and self-discipline to force ourselves to change. Instead, we learn to be internally motivated. We focus on the skills that will make a radical difference to how we feel about cooking.

You’ll be learning to trust yourself. Once you have that skill, being an amazing cook will just be who you are.

I believe in your ability to change so much I have a Happy Tastebuds Guarantee. If you’re not 100% happy I believe I don’t deserve to keep your money. So email me at jules@thestonesoup.com any time during the 90-days and I will return it to you with a smile.

All the risk is on me. The only thing you might lose by trying this is a little time and what you have to gain is a new life where yummmy home cooked food is the norm – for decades to come.

“I had not engaged in any real cooking for over 30 years. I was skeptical at first but you have made me a convert. I now am well on my way to truly becoming a Joyful Cook, which is little short of miraculous.

And to think I almost didn’t enroll. Had I not taken the course, I would have deprived myself of one of the very best educational experiences I have ever been fortunate enough to participate in. Thank you again, Jules” – Bill

FAQs

Q. Will it be suitable for plant-based / dairy-free / gluten-free / keto diets?
YES! We cater for ALL dietary requirements. Because I’m teaching you how to cook without recipes you’ll be free to choose the ingredients that work best for you.

Q. I don’t live in Australia, will I be able to join?
Coaching is open to anyone from anywhere in the world.
I work with people from all over the world including France, UK, Thailand, Poland, Panama, Ireland, North America and of course Australia.

The weekly coaching calls are recorded and published as video and audio (on the private podcast feed) so wherever you live you’ll be able to learn. Plus there is a 1:1 messaging service so you can ask questions via the chat and get coached by me as needed.

Q. My kitchen is super basic, what equipment will I need?
As a minimalist, I keep the equipment to a minimum. You don’t even need to have a kitchen! If you have a knife and chopping board that’s a great start. If you have a cook top or hot plate, oven, and a stick blender you’ll be able to make everything. A slow cooker is nice to have but you can always use the oven for those dishes.
