My love of food and cooking along with a keen interest in health and well-being have taken me on an exciting journey. My main inspirations have been the many enthusiastic people I have met along the way and the positive results that can emerge when we make small changes in our lives.
In 2001, I discovered the kitchen miracle called Thermomix® which makes cooking from scratch much easier to achieve. I have seen it inspire my own family and thousands of others to change the way they cook, with huge benefits.
I have written four Thermomix cookbooks and contributed to many others. I continue to have lots of fun developing new recipes.
I am passionate about teaching people to cook more easily and to nourish themselves well. I enjoy sharing what I have learned about good ingredients, fast and easy cooking, and the benefits of real food for health and well-being.
Before moving to the UK, I trained as a nurse in the beautiful city of Vancouver and specialised in cardiology. I then enjoyed a year seeing the sights of Europe and experiencing the rich variety of ingredients and dishes especially in France, Italy and Spain.
Once England became my home, I expanded my medical knowledge by training as a midwife. Delivering beautiful babies into the world was such a delight!
