What is your favourite part of being involved with the Lovedale Long Lunch?
I love that the Lovedale Long Lunch gives us an opportunity to celebrate the food and wine of the region in a really accessible and fun way.
What factors do you take into account when creating a menu for an audience of this size?
My aim is to create a menu that is seasonal but also approachable for a large audience. I want to offer something that everyone will enjoy.
What dish are you most excited about this year and what was your inspiration when creating it?
The local pork & fennel ragu with orecchiette pasta and parmesan & crackling crumb. Everyone loves pasta so I'm bringing to the Lovedale Long Lunch audience!

Basil pesto - it's simple and delicious.
Who in history would you most like to have prepared a meal for?
