For years Nabiha Koriaty has served up words of wisdom and platters of Lebanese food in her tiny restaurant on Baylis Street.
Now, she is publishing a book full of recipes for a good, healthy life.
The 79-year-old insists she isn't afraid of the coronavirus in the slightest, saying she has a clean bill of health and has never needed any form of medicine her entire life.
Mrs Koriaty attributes her good health to her active lifestyle and her faith in Christianity, which allows her to power through during the tough times in life.
"God renews your strength on the inside. Not on the outside, though, I look old on the outside," she said.
"God put me here for a reason and he keeps me alive for a reason."
Even in her old age she works busy 13-hour days, growing vegetables in her garden, cooking in her restaurant, and sharing life advice to those who come through her shop door.
Since opening restaurant in 1989 she become renowned as the go-to source of life advice for those who have lost their way - people battling depression, suicidal thoughts, and drug addiction.
"Don't worry about what kills the body, worry about what kills the soul," she said.
"Drugs kill both the body and the soul together."
On one occasion, a 16-year-old Albury boy who suffered from drug addiction came begging for food, and she helped turn his life around with some choice words of wisdom.
On another occasion, a man told her that he beat his wife and children on a daily basis, but soon Mrs Koriaty got him to see the error of his ways and change for the better.
She has helped countless people overcome their life struggles over the years, and she has written down some of her memories into her new book.
The book contains all the knowledge she's accumulated over the years - her best-known Lebanese recipes, her advice for staving off colds, and her experience as a Lebanese refugee.
It also describes her recipe to living a good life, which include an active lifestyle, a desire to serve others, and plenty of pomegranate juice.
Mrs Koriaty says the book will be published in about two weeks and will be available for sale in her restaurant, Nabiha's Kitchen.
