Hi! I’m Alice. fun
And I love making food
I like to think of life as an Edible Adventure…
Since leaving my School Teacher days behind to become a Life Teacher (punctuated by a brief turn on MasterChef Australia ), I’ve had the opportunity to take my meals and musings to an international audience, through writing articles, a book, presenting on TV and at live gigs, as well as being generally funny on the interwebz as @aliceinframes.
To me, cooking and eating together means sharing knowledge and telling tales; connecting across a kitchen bench, a festival stage or a dining room table. It helps in transferring ideas and passions on to the next generation. It’s all about cultivating curiosity.
Food is, ultimately, my way of saying ‘Hi, let’s be friends!’
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 learning new things 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.
It’s my firm belief 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.

Here’s where you can get your mitts on ‘Alice’s Food A-Z’
Most of my Sunday afternoon was spent bouncing off the walls, smiling widely and breathing rapidly with anticipation.
This was it. This was what I was waiting for.
If Saturday is your regular Prahran Market shopping day and subscribing to things like market newsletters isn’t your jam (it should be, you’ll like it) then you’d be forgiven for making the assumption that this weekend was the beginning of the zombie apocalypse- and that everyone had decided to stock up on the necessities (cheese) on the very same day.

This is an excellent way of using up stale muesli, excess biscuits or a big tub of ice-cream. It would make for a great kids’ birthday party activity, especially if you got the kids making biscuits, scooping ice-cream and drizzling dark chocolate over the top.
