It’s just an excuse to bring people together, really. A chance to share knowledge and tell tales; to pass ideas along a kitchen bench or a dining room table. It’s about transferring those ideas and passions on to the next generation; About cultivating curiosity.
Cooking is really just my way of saying ‘Hi, let’s be friends!’
Since competing in Masterchef Australia in 2012, I’ve had the opportunity to take my meals and musings to a massive international audience. As a result, I’ve left my life as a School Teacher behind to become a Life Teacher. I’m ready to bring my message to people (especially little people) across the country – and hopefully the world – through writing, performing and even the odd public appearance.
It’s my aim to draw on what I’ve learnt from my travels and experiences around the world; to say ‘yes!’ to as many new opportunities that come my way as possible; to continue learning and never stop. I’m proud to be able to shout: I’m an Epic Nerdburger! With extra cheese.
Some people think I’m a little nuts. And it’s true, I guess. I am a little nuts — about a lot of things. Like reading books, and playing with words, and laughing often and handstand push-ups and helping people feel happier and healthier; and, above all, about living life with gusto.
I’m also pretty nuts about food, believe it or not. Which, I suppose, is probably why you’re here. But a meal isn’t simply a meal, you see; it’s just the beginning.
I believe that being passionate and interested and slightly obsessed is the secret to living a healthy, fulfilled and interesting life.
Which is why I want everyone else to be a little nuts, too.
Hosting Kitchen Whiz is an absolute hoot! It's the perfect blend of two of my favourite things in life – food and learning.
Tune in every Weekday Morning at 7:30AM on Channel Go! for more fun, food & fluoro than you ever thought possible.
If I'm not out and about meeting you and making you laugh (also, maybe food) I'm busily etching my first tome into clay using cuneiform.*
* yep, I'm just Mesopotamianing with you.**
** but seriously, stay tuned - it's going to be good.***
*** I hope.
If you must know, I'm quite possibly at the markets, or some specialty store, or in a kitchen, devising new ways to turn real food into really good food - which is actually not that hard.
Let's just call it "Playing with my Plate".
ok, ok - I'm probably eating.

Everyone knows that technology and teachers don’t mix – so it’s no surprise to me when equipment goes kaput or microphones start whistling during my demos.
Something is stirring in Bendigo.
It’s not a revolution, per-say, or a stockade ala their neighbours at Eureka.
No – this is more a quiet hum, slowly building in volume and strength as numbers grow.
Voices of a country town that refuses to be seen as a sleepy thoroughfare; a place that looks to the future without forgetting its roots.
