Hi, I’m Roberta. Welcome to my kitchen. I love cooking, eating and drinking – and travelling in search of all three! I’ve worked in food and wine for 25+years and am blessed to count many top chefs and artisanal producers among my friends. I’ve written cookbooks with some of them, hosted cooking classes with most of them, and learnt to translate ‘chef speak’ into ‘home cook speak’. Now I’ll share with you what they’ve taught me.
For me food is all about sharing. Whether it’s dinner around a beautifully set table, exploring shops in one of Sydney’s ethnic enclaves, or getting behind-the-scenes with an artisanal producer – nothing gives me more pleasure than sharing the food I love with other people. Join me for a food experience soon.
I love the way wine completes a meal. I especially enjoy pinot noir, riesling, Sherry, natural wines and classic cocktails! I adore discovering new wine regions, tasting unusual grape varieties and meeting interesting wine folk. And I want to share it all with you.
Ready to be a traveller not a tourist? I love travel as much as I love food and wine. And I’ve spent a lifetime getting behind-the-scenes of many corners of the world through networks of friends that guide me to money-can’t-buy travel experiences. I’d love to show you my favourite corners of Europe & Australia.
