In My Own Kitchen

Fresh. Exciting. Delicious

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 childhood home kitchen helping by 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.

Busy schedules, overwhelm at meal planning, uncertainty at the stove, food intolerance's or fear of new flavours can all interfere with the joy of preparing and eating luscious food. But what if this could all change with ease?

Cooking in your kitchen allows you to relax, enjoy and create.

I get it, letting someone into you house to cook with you when you are learning from scratch can be intimidating. But just think - 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. Cooking has always been second nature to me and I love to share the joy and happiness with anyone and everyone.

What if we could leave the stress and hassle at the door and create wonderful delicious meals that make your mouth and body sing?

I love to create meals that are delicious, joyous and a delight to eat.

These can be from the simplest salad to the most 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. All you need to do is invite me into your kitchen and I'll do the rest.
