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. Cooking has taken me 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 always 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. So what can you expect from a lesson with me?

  • No industrial equipment or intimidating ingredients - we work from where you are comfortable. We use household utensils so you can replicate the dishes again and again and work with ingredients that are either part of your household pantry or you are able to easily purchase
  • Clear, concise instructions. Learning to cook is a skill and there are many ways to learn - I keep my recipe instructions simple, easily to follow and logical. This ensures you don't get lost along the way and can feel confident in preparing the dish
  • Budget aware meals - the recipes I provide work within your budget. Everyone has priority spending and meals can be adapted to what you have the budget for
  • Recipes that suit your dietary preferences - like it sweet, spicy or rich in taste? Love chicken but don't enjoy beef? That is no problem - the recipes are provided to suit what you love to eat and would like to learn
  • Disability inclusive recipes and techniques - I can adjust most recipes to suit most disabilities incorporating elements such as visual recipes, adjusted cooking times and specialised utensils to make the cooking experience accessible
  • Professional experience - I have many years of cooking in professional kitchens under my belt. This has allowed me to refine not only my cooking skills but my ability to lead and teach others so they are confident in their own skills
  • A fun and interesting time - cooking for me is about enjoying the process. I am aim to make my lesson fun and engaging so you finish the lesson with a smile

When I cook in my own home I cook with joy and passion

From the simplest salad to the most complicated desserts, I love to create in my own kitchen and share them with others. This is how my business 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.
