Hello ! So lovely to see you here…
I’ve been living a wholefood life long before ‘wholefood’ was a buzzword for healthy living, and have been actively involved in the wholefood world for around 25 years. I have a deep interest in effecting change in how we as a society grow, produce, relate to and eat food. I am a passionate advocate for sustainable and ethical farming practices, artisanal skills and knowledge, supporting our local farmers and fisherfolk. To this end I have been active in a number of groups that work to promote these goals, including as a Director on the OFA (Organic Federation of Australia) and the OFA Consumer Council.
I was born in the 1950’s to a mother of Italian decent, so it would be very fair to say food has always been a major part of my life. I am a whole and natural foods chef, award winning author, speaker and cooking teacher. All my books (and classes) but especially my new one (due June 1st, 2016) Wholefood From The Ground Up, are a discussion on and guide to nourishing wisdoms, and then how we translate those wisdoms into delicious meals as a delicious part of your everyday life, with less stress.
My third book – Wholefood for Children , released 2010 won an Australian Food Media Award: Sydney Markets Award for Best Health or Specific Diet Book – Highly Commended. My fourth book, Wholefood Baking released May 2013, won the Australian Category for Baking and Dessert in the Gourmand World Book Awards, 2014.
My 5th book, to be released in June 2016, is WHOLEFOOD FROM THE GROUND UP is a distillation of my experience and knowledge into one fabulous guide. I know that one of the greatest obstacles to healthy eating is time, or lack of it. But with just a little preparation you can build a solid food foundation, so being busy doesn’t have to mean going hungry. In addition to more than 120 nourishing recipes there is clear information about what constitutes ‘good’ food, where to source it and how to use it to its best effect. There is also a guide to building a wholefood pantry from scratch as well as practical tips for planning and preparing food ahead. Eat well, even on the busiest days.
