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 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.

It's taken almost three years from GO to WOAH!, but I feel extremely proud of the resulting tome - a fun food reference book for kids, published through Walker Books.
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.
Hosting Kitchen Whiz is an absolute hoot! It's the perfect blend of two of my favourite things in life – food and learning.

FOOD-ED has come about through my own experiences as a teacher - there could never be enough quality resources.
My aim is to create a user-friendly hub for educators, offering an opportunity to share and search interdisciplinary food education resources in a collaborative and accessible way.

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.
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.
