I have a passion for food and flavour. I thrive on the seasonal challenges of creating something new and exciting from fresh, local produce. I believe that cooking was meant to be fun and easy and I love nothing more than sharing ways to enjoy my simple to prepare recipes.
I travel the countryside presenting at gardening and cooking shows with garden2kitchen, an interactive hands-on food gardening and seasonal cooking demonstration. I present once a month on ABC Northcoast Good Gardening radio show where I cook up seasonal gluts from the garden. I write articles and recipes for ABC Gardening Australia magazine and contribute to ABC Organic Gardener magazine Harvest section, where I develop, write and style seasonal recipes.
I loved educating the guests at the internationally renowned Sydney Seafood School for 12 years on the simplicity and flavour of seafood. This led to my regular spot on ABC Big Fish program where I share a recipe using the latest catch. I have worked in the publishing industry for 15 years, conceiving, writing and styling countless recipes for many cookbooks and popular magazines. I have combined my Bachelor of Media degree with my formal food training to carve out a career as a food writer, food stylist and presenter.
