I also spoke of my experiences over thirty years as a food communicator from the earliest days of a fledgling food media, to the present digital age and my very brief appearances on the hugely successful reality series Masterchef, and along the way was able to discuss the trials and excitements of being a published author of 17 books, and my proudest achievement of helping bring pleasurable food education to more than 200,000 Australian children every year.
