in a nutshell
Alice encourages people of all ages to find the joy in cooking & eating.
Her audaciously achievable yet delicious recipes, an educator’s eye, and a bright, inclusive tone is what brings everyone to the table and invites them to stay.
She’s shared the stage with household names and culinary stars as host of grand auditorium-filled in-conversations with Nigella Lawson & Rick Stein, to intimate Q&A’s with Ana Roš & Selassie Atadika.
Be it pan, pen or microphone in-hand, she’s the friend in food you’ve always wanted to find.
Her best-selling cookbook, In Praise of Veg, a definitive guide to cooking with vegetables has quickly become a staple in Australian kitchens, won the ABIA for Best Illustrated Nonfiction 2021, and has already been translated into multiple languages, and even picked up a Gold Medal in the German Gastronomy Awards.
Her first book, Alice’s Food A-Z was the first cookbook to be given a Notable Book gong by the Children’s Book Council of Australia.
Alice’s words can be found in publications from The Guardian to The Australian Women’s Weekly, ABC Everyday, SBS Food, The Age/SMH Good Food, Broadsheet and The Design Files.
Alice is the host of ABC Radio Sunday Drive. She also co-hosts foodie radio talkback segments on ABC Radio Melbourne, Hobart and Perth.
On the telly, Alice is the resident Culinary Correspondent on ABC News Breakfast, encouraging Australians to expand their cooking – and eating – horizons, from Chilli to Watermelon Ham.
Alice has been host of Kitchen Whiz, Crunch Time, Short Cuts to Glory, and Good Food Christmas. You might remember her as The One with the Glasses from MasterChef Australia.
Constantly looking for ways to get more people comfortable with cooking, she created ‘by Alice’, a range of shortcuts to flavour-town, kicking off with the smash hit savoury spread Tumami, and with plenty more on the way.
From helping shift the way food is taught to kids, to being on the pulse with innovations across the system, if there’s anything in food worth knowing about, Alice is the one to ask.
