About Me

My Journey with Food began when I first married my husband many moons ago. I arrived home after our honeymoon, went to work and came home to realise I had to actually cook and that my mum hadn’t made dinner. Now what? There, began my journey with food. The hunt began for recipes from magazines, books, television, older women and women in grocery stores. So hungry for good recipes – I’d start conversations with strangers, friends and of course family!

Today as a mum of two boys, a large extended family and friends – entertaining and sharing food has become a huge part of my life. I’m passionate about authentic real and practical ways of cooking that bring people together and create fun memories.

My culture, food and family are three aspects of my life that are greatly important to me. Here, I want to share my story, food and traditions so that they can be enjoyed by an audience greater than just my immediate family and friends.

And now, I’m so excited to join you on your journey with food
