She is an award-winning multi-media presenter, celebrity chef, MC, speaker, food & wine expert, consultant, debater, judge and regional Australian specialist who makes numerous TV & culinary appearances. She maintains her position at the forefront of Australian and global cuisine and has an ability to connect with all audiences.
