Making It Easy For Home Cooks To Confidently
Explore New Cuisines & Ingredients

Welcome to my Kitchen

Hi, I’m Roberta. Welcome to my kitchen. I love cooking, eating and drinking – and travelling in search of all three! I especially love cooking with my chef friends – I’ve written cookbooks with some of them, hosted cooking classes with all 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 around a beautifully set table, on a picnic rug or writing about my favourite restaurants … nothing gives me more pleasure than sharing the food I love with other people.

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.

Exploring the back roads of Sardinia and Lombardy with locals, crossing high Swiss passes in spring, road trips through the Scottish Highlands, Iran, Faroe Islands and Mongolia; these are a few of my favourite travel experiences.

Great Chefs

Many of my friends have spent their lives cooking. They’re passionate about sharing great food with others, through their restaurants, recipes, cookbooks and classes. Join them and me in my kitchen to explore new cuisines and techniques.

We made the pot-sticker dumplings and bang bang chicken – once again both exceeded our expectations. My husband keeps saying it’s better ordering this than going out to restaurants as the recipes and food quality are amazing.

The whole Be Inspired experience has helped me love cooking again. I was sick of cooking the same old things - meal time is a lot brighter thanks to you Roberta.

I loved the Fresh & Easy Chicken – simple instructions, only a few ingredients and the time factor absolutely spot on. Then came the highlight, the taste, no compromise on the enjoyment of that meal! For the time poor Fresh & Easy hits the mark indeed.

Thank you for stocking our pantry with such authentic Ingredients and quality produce ... I’ve so enjoyed picking fresh leaves from the herb pots and loved listening to the chef's playlist while cooking. We really like the flexibility of cooking over a couple of days and changing the order we cook the dishes in when we want to.

I am absolutely loving these boxes! There are Ingredients I have never worked with before so having the confidence to try something new is so much fun! The recipes are just amazing and the notes on what can be prep’d beforehand are a great help too. Thank you so much.

Loving Be Inspired! Felt like a kid opening up a Christmas present when the box arrived. Fresh herb pots are a nice touch!
