Hi! I’m Alice.  
And I love making food fun

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 articlesa 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 means 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.


Current projects.

  1. 01. Alice's Food A-Z

    "...Think Andy Griffiths meets Heston Blumenthal..." - Books + Publishing Magazine

  2. 02. Edible Adventures

    As face of Prahran Market and official 'Adventurer-in-Residence', I get to share all of my favourite foodie finds with fellow market fans and newbies alike through weekly posts and monthly #chefchallenges with some of Melbourne's top chefs.

  2. 02. the revolution starts where?

    Most of my Sunday afternoon was spent bouncing off the walls, smiling widely and breathing rapidly with anticipation.

  1. 01. MYO Anzac Biscuit Ice-cream Sandwich

    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.

  2. 02. jam-filled “chonuts”

    These were the perfect way of showcasing the award-winning jams and preserves in the Winning Tastes Pavillion at the Royal Melbourne Show. They’re much easier to make than you think… Give them a go!
