It’s where environmentally friendly eating meets nutritional enlightenment. We believe in being kind to ourselves and to our planet, so our aim is to make healthy eating super, simple and smart.

We offer an inspirational and realistic approach to healthy living, through menu planning and nutrition workshops that promote healthy recipes based on fresh, seasonal produce and nutrient-dense “super foods”.


Find out how easy it is to prepare simple, yet highly nutritious vegetarian recipes that are free of gluten, dairy and refined sugar. Get ready for small changes that bring BIG benefits to your health!

The Clever Kitchen helps you nourish yourself and your family with healthy meals, snacks and treats. We’re busy mothers ourselves, so we know it’s not always easy to make the right eating choices thanks to our active lives and the constant temptations of “quick fix” foods. Not to mention the confusion about what we should eat and what we shouldn't!


Our aim at the Clever Kitchen is simply to make it easier to be healthy. We’ll empower you with reliable, straightforward information about food and healthy, delicious recipes that are practical for life in the real world.


Susan TomassiniSusan Tomassini is a licensed Nutritionist (BSc Hons, Dip BCNH) based between Monaco and Milan. She brings her scientific knowledge and experience to The Clever Kitchen - providing the complete nutritional lowdown and explaining why we need to eat certain foods and avoid others, as well as the benefits of “super” foods for body and mind. She is the creator of FOODWISE a website that makes top quality nutritional and lifestyle advice available to everyone, through personalised nutritional plans and regular blogs.





Melanie GulliverMelanie Gulliver, uses her knowledge from years of preparing healthy plant based meals for herself and her family, to create inventive, fresh recipes. She creates the recipes on this website and menus for The Clever Kitchen’s regular workshops and for retreats and events across the Riviera and further afield, and often demonstrates the recipes to show how easy they are to make.
Always experimenting in her kitchen, Melanie challenges the status quo of accepted ingredients, and looks for ways to make traditional recipes healthier, plant based, and to use superfoods to boost the nutritional benefits for everyone.



The Clever Kitchen’s live workshops are informative, interactive and entertaining. Sampling each delicious creation enhances the whole experience. Everyone leaves equipped with recipes, up to the minute nutritional information and the latest in superfood knowledge.


Our workshops are held in a relaxed environment - perfect for asking questions, discussing common health concerns and socialising.


Our on-line detox and weight loss programs are friendly, supportive environments for our members to connect with each other, ask Susan questions and share recipes and updates. We hold your hand as you make changes to your diet and applaud you when you update us on your personal achievements.


We look forward to welcoming you to The Clever Kitchen soon!
