The Spirit House, nestled in Yandina on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, is one of those special restaurants in the world. Sitting in the lush, tropical jungle of bamboo, palms, bougainvilleas, frangipanes, with a series of eight courtyards set around a central lake covered with waterlilies and watching the ducks float around, one could be forgiven thinking that they had been transported to Thailand. The exquisite Thai styled food and ambience at this restaurant bring diners from up and down the coast, and around the world.
Helen Brierty and her husband Peter own the well-known Spirit House Restaurant and Cooking School at Yandina on the Sunshine Coast. With Head Chef Annette Fear, Helen has co-authored Spirit House Recipe Collection and Travels with Thai Food in which they have brought together their most popular and requested dishes, which have been enjoyed for years by diners at the restaurant and taught to students at the cooking school. Helen has created a hydroponic farm that, together with surrounding farms, provides both the restaurant and cooking school with the freshest of produce.
