Homegrown Kitchen is my online recipe journal where I share seasonal recipes inspired by my garden and local ingredients. All the images are my own unless otherwise stated. You can print recipes for home use by clicking on the ‘Print’ button beside the recipe title at the bottom of the page. *Please do not reproduce recipes in any form without permission. Thank-you kindly 🙂

I write a fortnightly food column for NZ and associated publications (The Press, Dominion Post, Waikato Times, Nelson Mail etc.). I have also contributed recipes to MiNDFOOD (recipe column 2014-2017), Wild Tomato (recipe column 2007-2017), The Natural Parent (recipe column 2010-2014), NZ House & Garden, Organic NZ, Next Magazine, NZ Listener, North & South, Good Magazine, Little Treasures, Good Health Choices and Jetstar Magazine.
