I love everything about food from thinking, reading, writing and talking about it, meeting the people who grow it and make it, to shopping for it, experimenting and cooking it, tasting and savouring it! Holidays are spent scouring the aisles of the local market or shops rather than visiting the shrine or famous landmark.
I live in Brisbane and have a wonderful husband and 2 (almost grown-up) sons. Fortunately, they love to eat and suffer my endless experiments and new recipes without complaint! Otherwise, my beautiful dog and cat are always on standby to show their appreciation!
To help me I have my trusty Thermomix, whose inclusion in my life has opened my world of capabilities. I never envisaged being able to mill my own flour, make my own almond milk & coconut cream, much less make my own chocolate!!
In recent years I have discovered the Paleo philosophy of avoiding grains and sugar, and feel better for it, so I aim to cook with natural unprocessed ingredients, good fats, fruit and vegetables. But by no means am I a food snob! I believe that everyone has to find their ‘perfect fit’ in what they eat and let’s face it, everyone loves a treat!
Keen to demonstrate that a Primal lifestyle is not limiting in any way, I love the challenge of developing recipes within the criteria and “Paleo-fying” everyday foods. Especially naughty ones!
I am all about whole-food and home-made. I particularly avoid gluten and do try to avoid dairy and experiment with dairy alternatives. You will find no gluten based foods here and just a sprinkling of dairy – this fluctuates depending on my tolerance to it! I do not label myself as vegan, vegetarian, dairy-free, fat-free, carb-free or anything else but enjoy using what I like from different food approaches and adapt to suit to what makes me feel happy. Everyone is individual and there is no “one size fits all” .
