An adventurer by nature, but a lover of home by heart. This is a collection of tastes from my tables abroad… wherever that may be.
I spend my days professionally food writing and my nights cooking and exploring wherever the path may lead.
What developed from my desire to be Italian in primary school, longing for the thick hair and a gnocchi making nonna, grew to be much, much more. My days studying pastry in Paris, appearing on My Kitchen Rules in Australia, running a catering business in Holland and working as a head chef in Kuala Lumpur, have all led me to where I am today.
I am at my happiest when sharing food with my favourite people. I care deeply about nourishing our bodies with goodness. I don’t believe in dieting, I don’t believe in fads, I believe in feeding your body, simply, with home made food. Simply delicious, home made food. I take the lessons learnt from my wanders and apply them to the everyday kitchen and cook. My aim for this blog is that you get excited by food. That it encourages you to want to learn more, want to eat well and want to source produce, better.
Need restaurant or travel recommendations? I pride myself on eating the best food on my wanders even if it means searching for wifi in the corners of hotels and scrolling through pages and pages of websites.
