About


Hello!

I’m a Sydney based cook and I work with brands as a recipe developer/tester, food writer and content creator.

Most of my cooking is inspired by food cultures and traditions from around the world with a natural focus on seasonality, sustainability and just making dishes from scratch! Throughout my website you will find a diverse range of recipes, with a big focus on dishes coming from lesser known food minorities – especially Eastern European Flavours as i’m currently writing my first cookbook about family and locally inspired recipes from Belarus.

After completing a double degree at the University of Technology Sydney – Bachelor of Arts in International Studies and Business in Tourism, I worked with brands in the travel, events and business industry focussing on marketing.

I had the amazing opportunity to partake in Masterchef Australia 2016, as a contestant. Following this experience I focussed on gaining more food knowledge by doing work experience at various Sydney based restaurants such as Quay, Firedoor and Bells at Kilcare. Shortly after I began creating food content and worked as a freelancer with different businesses to showcase their produce and products (please contact me directly if you would like to receive my media kit). You can also find a collection of my work in the portfolio section. 

Some of the brands that I work/ed with include:

Harris Farm Markets
