I grew up on a sheep and beef farm in the foothills of Mt Holdsworth in the Tararua Ranges, learning all about work ethic and how to love and respect food.
It all seems so natural to me, where food comes from, but in recent times there has been a disconnection between urban and rural communities. There is so much to be gained by reconnecting with the farms that produce our food.
A great part of my work is seeking out the freshest produce available, to enable me to cook fresh and flavoursome food and finding new products that enhance my cooking. I hope my writing will help you find these connections.
What else – here are a few things I get up to.
I’m a regular contributor to Bite, the Monday lift-out in the NZ Herald and bite.co.nz

Ghost writer for cookbooks including – Volume 1 and 2 of The New Zealand Rugby Kitchen
