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

It’s an excuse to bring people together, really. A chance to share knowledge and tell tales; to pass ideas along a kitchen bench or a dining room table. It’s about transferring those ideas and passions on to the next generation; About cultivating curiosity.

Cooking is really just my way of saying ‘Hi, let’s be friends!’

Since competing in Masterchef Australia in 2012, I’ve had the opportunity to take my meals and musings to a massive international audience. As a result, I’ve left my life as a School Teacher behind to become a Life Teacher. I’m ready to bring my message of edible adventures and make-your-own magic to people (especially little people) across the country – and hopefully the globe – through writing, talking, cooking and above all, eating.

My mission is to draw on what I’ve learnt from my travels, experiences and chance encounters around the world; to say ‘yes!’ to as many opportunities that come my way as possible; to continue learning and never stop.

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 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.

  1. 01. Alice's Food A-Z

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

    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.

  2. 02. the revolution starts where?

    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.

  1. 01. WINTER: Chopped Liver

    If there’s one thing Jewish mothers do better than cook, it’s lay on the guilt trip. Jewish guilt is about as well-known as matzah ball soup, and slightly more effective at getting whoever it’s being dished out to get back off their tuchus*.

  2. 02. WINTER: Quattro formaggi pizza

    This pizza catapulted me to the road for an Immunity pin on MasterChef Australia in 2012. The lick of crushed garlic oil on the base really helps cut through the richness of the cheese.
