It's important to cook the scallops on a very hot griddle so that they caramelise and don't stew.
Things I Like!
I’m food-centric….my husband calls me a food maniac. Everything in my life revolves around food. I’m proud to associate myself with events and non-profit organisations who give back to the community. Check out some of my stories and links below:
Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Day
The idea for Food Revolution Day was cooked up three years ago by our friend Jamie Oliver in the UK, who believes that cooking tasty, nutritious food from scratch is a skill everyone should have. It’s so good to have Jamie in our corner, his enthusiasm is so infectious and he’s proved with passion and energy you can make a healthy change.
In 2014 we made food history with more than 2000 kids cooking along with Jamie -making colourful rainbow salad wraps from fresh ingredients. I was lucky enough to host the event at the Sydney Showgrounds and break a Guinness World Record for the ‘The Largest Cookery Lesson Ever’ which was verified on the spot.
Jamie’s Ministry of Food Australia
From little thing big things grow – and thanks to the Good Foundation, who have partnered with Jamie Oliver, I hosted the opening of the very first MOF kitchen in Ipswich, Queensland back in ….?. We now have…? kitchens operating around Australia teaching basic food skills to communities in need
Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea - Cancer Council
As a passionate supporter of a healthy lifestyle, which is fundamental to reducing your cancer risk, I am really proud to support and be an ambassador for Australia’s morning tea. Check out their website for lots of great recipes provided by celebrity chefs and cooks.
Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation
I am a proud ambassador for this fantastic program. If every school had a Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden, by the age of 12 every Australian kid would have kitchen and garden skills to last them a healthy lifetime.
I am passionate about fresh produce and have been busy promoting some of WA’s greatest food regions:
The Swan Valley
I’m thrilled to be an ambassador of the second oldest wine growing region in Australia. It’s so beautiful!
The Southern Forests
One of the highlights of the Southern Forests region is the Truffle Kerfuffle Festival. I go every year – check it out
Whether you’re a surfy, a wino, a food lover or all three! You could call this place heaven
The Great Southern
I’m lucky enough to now call the Great Southern my home. I moved there at the beginning of 2014 with my husband Luc and my dog Hubert. It’s a food maniac’s dream to be living in an area where old school farming is still producing delicious sustainable and organic foods. Well worth a trip to the region for Taste Great Southern
