Recipe development
Byron based recipe developer for leading Australian publications.

My current work encompasses writing a monthly recipe feature, regular nutrition based articles and health focused meal plans in my role as in-house nutrition editor for taste.com.auI am also regular recipe contributor for Healthy Food Guide and WW, in addition to recipe editor for Belle magazine and several health based cookbooks.

Recipe development

My career in food publishing debuted in 2002 at delicious magazine in the role as assistant food editor, followed by food editor at family circle magazine. This allowed me to develop a signature style of creating delicious recipes with a wholistic health focus.

Since then I have written countless recipes for several publications including Delicious, Diabetic Living, Fresh, Healthy Food Guide, Notebook, Prevention, Recipes Plus, Super Food Ideas, Woolworths Good Taste, Woolworths Baby & Toddler and Weight Watchers.

I regularly develop and contribute recipes for advertising and commercial clients such as Meat & Livestock Australia and organisations such as the Grains & Legumes Nutrition Council & the GI Foundation and have been a regular recipe contributor for Michelle Bridges 12WBT, and active8me websites.

Developing recipes for health focused cookbooks is also something I love to do, including The Low GI Vegetarian cookbook, over 20 Weight Watchers cookbooks, 2 Biggest Loser cookbooks and Dr Peter Brukner’s A Fat Lot of Good.
