On the evening of Wednesday 21st October, we finally launched our cook book. What an incredible moment it was for Ness and I. To finally see our book on the shelves of one of Sydney’s most eminent book stores was pretty awesome. Thanks to the wonderful team at Harry Hartog for making the night so special. We were lucky to have so many of our supportive friends and family attend the evening - it was wonderful to see everyone there.
Creating our book has been a 2-year love project. What started as a one-off cooking class for dear friends, with Ness volunteering to take photographs of my dishes, culminated in us jointly producing Our Tamarama Kitchen. Our book is really a celebration of where we live and how I cook.
My passion is food and bringing people together. I love to create delicious healthy food for my friends and family – for me, it is my way of embracing people and showing my love for them.
Working with Ness has been a journey that I have found immensely joyful. I am sure you will all agree when you read our book that the photographs are phenomenal and that Ness is truly a rare talent behind the lens. After each shoot, I would always be gobsmacked at how talented she was and how amazing all her shots of my food were. I feel very lucky and blessed to have teamed up with Ness and to have her as a close friend. We have had so much fun in creating this book and we hope that you enjoy reading and cooking from it as much as Ness and I have had in bringing it to life! Enjoy!
