About me

Hi! I am Mel and I have an ongoing love affair with food! Here I invite you into my kitchen in the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula, South Australia, so that I can share my love of food with you.

Food has a wonderful way of bringing people together and creating such joy. I love nothing more than to sit around with family and friends sharing good food, wine and laughter. As the iconic Julia Child said “people who love to eat are always the best people”. Indeed they are!

So, please come with me on my food journey and let me share some of my foodie joy with you! Some things you should know about me:

  • I have an addiction to chocolate. Really, really good chocolate.

  • Oh and I also have an addiction to cookbooks. Lots of cookbooks.

  • I am a feeder and will always over cater.

  • I don’t have any commercial qualifications, but have done lots of pastry courses....and I spend far too much time pouring over cookbooks soaking in as much information and learning as much as I possibly can!

  • I have a husband whose love of bikes and gin equals my love of food.

  • I have 2 beautiful children, Lily & Ben who think that living in a restaurant is the norm.

  • My favourite wine is pinot noir. Feel free to send some.

    It’s all for the love of food.

Mel xoxo
