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 best-selling 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 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.

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

    Eve Pownall Award for Information Books Notable Book 2016, Children's Book Council of Australia

    It's taken almost three years from GO! to WOAH!, and I feel extremely proud of the resulting tome - a fun food reference book for kids, published through one of the world's top children's book houses, Walker Books.

  2. 02. The Feed

    "You would have to be one of the most delightful and refreshing people I have seen in the media for years...
    Every week I look forward to receiving the weekly review to read your articles. You have a way of making them so fun to read." - Yvonne, TWR reader

    As Food Editor of The Weekly Review, Melbourne's premier weekly property glossy, I get to bring the local food scene home to 630,000 mailboxes across the city every week.

  3. 03. Crunch Time

    Crunch Time is a brand new lifestyle show for tweens, teaching them to find their spark and discover their own passions by meeting talented kids who get to learn new skills in The Kitchen and on The Turf. This project combines so many of my favourite things - cooking, experiments, being active, quirky hobbies, getting creative, puns, adventure - it's a bunch of fun to film and to watch!

    Tune in 7:30 every weekday morning on Channel Go! Or on-demand via the 9-Now app!


  4. 04. Kitchen Whiz

    There is absolute nothing sophisticated about this breezy, cheerful quiz show for kids... but any 10-and-under who either enjoys hanging out in the kitchen or enjoys shouting answers at the telly will get a kick out of it". - Sydney Morning Herald

    Hosting 3 seasons of Kitchen Whiz was an absolute hoot!

    A fun, fast, fabulous; food focused game show for kids on Channel 9.

    This is a classic dessert cake and the best thing is that it only takes a few minutes to prepare once the oranges are cooked (this can be done the day before).
