I started this blog three and a half years ago because I thought it would be fun to take some of my pent-up food obsession and channel it into something creative.
Food has been the biggest adventure in my life and I have been baking and cooking since I was 6. I’ve built my career in and around food – first studying at Hotel School, where I received formal culinary training, then working in the hospitality industry (restaurants, hotels and bars) for many years.
Somewhere around my late twenties I wanted a new challenge, we are supposed to have many careers right? So I studied marketing part time at night college, and then went on to work as a brand manager for a number of FMCG companies for 7 years. I always managed food and fast food restaurant brands, and during my career I was involved with taking over 100 products to market. My last job was at Nando’s, where my portfolio as a national brand manager was to oversee the menu and all marketing related activities related to that.
