Hi there, welcome to The Kitchenmaid.
I tell people I'm always in the kitchen at parties, but when I'm not doing that I'm usually clutching a notebook, on the phone or at a keyboard. Or I'm doing the dishes.
I have been a journalist for 12 years, working for newspapers, magazines and online for publications in New Zealand, Australia and the UK. My first food columns were written for the now-defunct Wellington newspaper, City Voice (I don't think my recipes had anything to do with the paper's demise, though a reader once commented that I was the only writer 'who made real dough').
I am currently Life and Style editor at stuff.co.nz and have a regular food column in Frankie magazine.
If you'd like to get in touch regarding commissions or just to chew the fat, you can drop me a line here or find me on Twitter and Facebook.
