A Pot Luck party to say G'day and Welcome to our new chef,
Australian food writer & stylist, Donna Hay, began her career at the age of 19, and within a few short years was appointed Food Editor of marie claire magazine. Donna is now the editor of her own magazine, donna hay magazine, a top-selling bi-monthly food magazine which has achieved tremendous success in her home country of Australia, as well as much international acclaim, with subscribers in 82 countries worldwide.
Donna is currently Australia’s leading food editor and best-selling cookbook author. Her food and recipes, which focus on basic ingredients, simply prepared, have inspired a whole new generation of cooks to get into the kitchen, while her signature styling and beautifully photographed dishes have set the benchmark for food publishing worldwide.
She has 18 award-winning cookbooks to her credit, and was named one of the ‘Magnificent Seven’ cookbook authors by the international Gourmand Awards in January 2007.
Donna also has a popular weekly food column in both Australian and New Zealand newspapers, and is also a regular contributor to UK’s leading lifestyle magazine, Living etc.
And it doesn't stop there. Donna also has her own concept store in Sydney, Australia, her own highly successful range of homewares, and has more recently launched the donna hay food range, with cookies, brownies and cupcake baking kits full of all natural ingredients.
Whew!! You'd wonder how such a busy woman would ever find time to cook. Proof positive, no doubt that Donna's simple but stylish dishes are perfect for busy people.
We're excited to be introducing this wonderful new chef to you, and hope you will enjoy cooking with Donna for the next six months. In addition to Donna's books and magazines, which are available through both her own website and through Amazon (other major booksellers too), you will also find a ton of her recipes by visiting any of the links in the sidebar.
