Simon's food truly highlights nature’s finest delights. I have always been so inspired by his creations and his ability to use simple fresh ingredients in a way that surprise and delight the palette.
I’ve been waiting a long time to get these recipes in my hand to cook them in my own kitchen!!! Thank you Simon 🙏🏼❤️

New Earth Cooking has brought me back in touch with my creative essence. I understand food on a whole new level! I feel excited about cooking again for the first time in many years
This approach to food hasn't just changed the way I eat. It has changed the way I am
If there is one word to describe Simon’s role in the world he chooses the word Earth Custodian. We belong to Earth. Earth cannot belong to us. He shows through his work that the sense of ‘ownership’ is distorted, and when we come back to being custodians to the land to which we belong, and the people we commune with, happiness returns as a natural result.
He’s also a rebel. Frustrated with the wasteful ways of the restaurant world he started his movement. New Earth Cooking. A food philosophy that considers the Earth as our guide to our food choices.
He created restaurants where he helps the staff find better jobs if they get bored as Simon refuses to surround himself with anyone who’d rather be somewhere else.
He invites farmers into the kitchen and brings chefs to the land.
He believes food should ideally grow as a forest, not on a farm. During his 5 years living as a chef at a Silent Retreat, he planted 4 hectares of ‘food forest’ featuring hundreds of edible species. He founded New Earth School where food forestry is taught, both in the kitchen and in the garden. Simon believes one day soon all chefs will become inseparable from the land again. For over 7 years Simon has been hosting sharing circles, helping people reconnect and inviting them to come back to their innocent, Earth-loving (s)elves.
