Me, In My Own Kitchen and what we are all about


Fresh. Exciting. Luscious. These three words are my benchmarks for preparing and eating whatever I choose. I’ve been a lover of food and maker of meals for as long as I can remember. From my home kitchen growing up peeling potatoes and topping beans, to the professional kitchens throughout my career, food, eating well, eating different and eating with joy has been second nature. I thought this was the case for everyone. Through conversations with friends, clients and co-workers I realised that not everyone feels the same.

Diets started and abandoned, food intolerances, shame and guilt, time poor schedules all interfere with the joy of preparing and eating luscious food. But what if this could all change with ease?

Cooking has been second nature and I love to share the joy and happiness with anyone and everyone. How would you like to discover what makes cooking and entertaining fun for you? What if we could leave the stress and hassle at the door and create wonderful luscious meals that make your mouth and body sing? No longer am I content to just cook meals. I love to create meals that are delicious, joyous and a delight to eat. That can be from the simplest salad to the more complicated desserts. Most of all I love to create them in my own kitchen and share them with others. This is how In My Own Kitchen was born. I have cooked here in Australia and around the world and brought home recipes, ideas and inspirations that I can’t wait to share with you all in the comfort of your kitchen. 

Cooking in your kitchen allows you to relax, enjoy and create. No scary industrial equipment, no utensils you don’t have at home to make the recipes yourself and no stress to get it “right”. I’m there with you every step, sharing my knowledge, teaching you my skills and inviting you to discover the joy of cooking you yourself can have and create in your own kitchen. 

I take pleasure in the type of cutlery and crockery I eat off and with. I ask my body what it would like to eat and how much. Each time. I take great delight in shopping for my meals, indulging in the colours, smells and possible flavours each ingredient offers. My body is a part of my meal preparation, chopping, stirring, mixing and frying up delicious meals. What if you and your body could experience the same for you?

Would you also love to style your table and home to suit? What if simple tweaks and combinations could create a fabulous setting with ease and little cost? I love to set the table and make an occasion of the meal and what if you could too? What if it is much easier than you think? I have set the table many times for events and assisted in styling corporate events, weddings, birthdays and my own dinner parties. All these experiences has allowed me to see where you can create beauty and elegance without breaking the bank. Interested in creating this yourself?
