With a dedication to creating memorable events, providing great customer service and designing wholesome, delicious food, I have been catering weddings and functions for over 10 years. I previously owned Pachamama Cafe in Killcare plus co-owned the popular Garden 2 Plate Cafe & Catering for 7 years.

I am passionate about providing guests with exciting dishes that are vibrant with alive food that’s colourful and pretty. I especially love garden to plate style catering where produce travels the least miles to get to your table I now have my own small permaculture garden, so often ingredients are sourced straight from my garden. All our kitchen scraps go straight back into my compost which ends up back on the veggie patch. It is my joy to see this cycle come full circle to the dishes I serve to my guests.

My love and passion for great food took me to New York to study plant based cuisine at culinary school in Brooklyn. I regularly host cooking workshops and events to share my love of creating fresh, delicious meals with the community.
