Hi! I’m Alice.  
And I do way more than just cook.

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 of edible adventures and make-your-own magic to people (especially little people) across the country – and hopefully the globe – through writing, talking, cooking and above all, eating.

It’s my mission to draw on what I’ve learnt from my travels, chance encounters and experiences around the world; to say ‘yes!’ to as many opportunities that come my way as possible; to continue learning and never stop.

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, 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 joyful, fulfilled and interesting life.

Which is why I want everyone else to be a little nuts, too.

  1. 01. Taste of Sydney

    When I was invited to reprise my role as host of the Taste Kitchen @ Taste of Sydney 2014, I was pretty darn excited.

    The Taste Kitchen presents everything that I enjoy about my job: working with talented chefs, learning new tips and tricks about food, eating said food, and of course, making people laugh.

  2. 02. Ginger is Coming

    It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of HBO’s Game of Thrones, so, with Season 4 hitting our screens this week, I thought I’d take geeking out to a whole new level, and combine this fandom with my food-dom even further.
