Australia is so very multicultural, that defining a cuisine is near impossible. Hence you get a range of foods “typically” eaten by (Vegan) Aussies.
PLEASE let us make it clear –
we do not cater to those on special diets, Raw,
Celiac, Gluten free, Paleo, Allergenic, Ketogenic
and the myriad of “other” “diets”. IF you write to
us and say I am allergic to peanuts ONLY,
(Or something similar), we can probably work around
If there is a list of foods you
cannot eat, please send us your list. If we can work
with it we will. Last "family" here could
not eat Gluten or foods with sugar added. We worked
around that on this occasion as these four, were our
Picky eaters, often dictate what everyone eats as we cannot put our usual ingredients in (say curry) or many foods, as we may upset them. It is unfair to those that eat "the rainbow". Hence, it is a nighmare trying to work with "picky eaters" expeience has shown us it is VERY hard.
We must decline accepting guests, with these issues, it is MUCH better for everyone, if they choose a host more compatible with their way of life. It was/is very unsettling watching someone removing all corn, peas, capsicum, etc.. from a curry, before what was left, was acceptable to them. If you cannot eat something, please tell us, it saves us money and us both “heartache”.
We NEVER purchase food to
accommodate the – chosen/medical - diet of our
guest, WITHOUT you writing to us first and
explaining. With this knowledge we “MAY” be able to
come to some agreement with you.
BREAKFAST: (THE most difficult meal of the day, for non Asian people)
Breakfast is “continental” and this can mean a myriad of things to many people
Here it means. Cereal (We tend to buy Wheetbix – NO SUGAR Variety - sugar on the table) you serve yourself. Plant milks – whatever is on special – Almond, Soy, Rice, Coconut, Oat, etc.. can be used on your cereal. We do NOT buy or offer fruit juice, but you can buy & store in our fridge if you wish.
There will also be wholegrain/Multigrain/Rye breads, jams, peanut butter and one piece of “seasonal” fruit. Most often there are two or more choices for your piece of fruit.
NO COOKING takes place at breakfast time, except in winter, where hot porridge may be served. You can of course toast your bread. Of course no Animals are ever cooked.

During the days we only have HelpX, Workaway, Warmshowers and Couchsurfing, we do Not cook lunch. We put a selection of breads/noodles/rice and "fillings" salad and may reheat excess food, from the night before. We excercise "controls" on re-heated food and will explain to you - in person.
EVENING MEAL - The biggest meal of the day:
It is usually around 18:00hrs but not later than 19:00hrs as long as we can talk with everyone. “I want to go to Perth City and be home at 22:00” “can I cook my meal then?” If you choose not to be here at meal times, you will need to provide for yourself, at YOUR expense.
The food served is different EVERY day, always vegan.
the key, MOST people will talk with us and we can
fit in with most scenarios. But, as always, there
are those that simply say "I am going out", they
offer no indication for how long, OR if they will
even return for a meal. So we set meal times. When
we have people working 8am - 1pm at the Temple, we
shedule lunch for 1pm, 5 days a week. Weekends, we
listen to those that choose to discuss with us. Within each
meal time frame we only cook ONCE.
