A new monthly magazine feature for Chef and Steward

068_AHG_032_430740

It’s been really rough trying to balance working from home with being sole caretaker of our increasingly active baby while hubster works 12-15 hour days six days per week but every time he gives me his single-tooth grin or tugs on my leg to play, I know it’s worth it. I am toying with the idea of doing a post updating the reality of us being a chef family but that will be an epic undertaking. In the meantime, I am still trying to make it through from day to day. Can I get a witness new moms or working moms?  In spite of it, I would not have it any other way.

As of this month, I will be contributing monthly to Gourmet magazine, developing menus and recipes, making the dishes, doing the food styling and photography – a veritable one woman food media production. It has been a tremendously uplifting experience working with the team.  Remember when we were first featured in Gourmet some time ago? I look forward to sharing more of my work there. If you are in the region, be sure to grab a copy before they sell out. If you are further afield, see the rest of the 4-page feature after the jump. You can enlarge each photo by clicking on them.

Hats off for my portrait by my late photographer friend, Saleem Almas. I believe this photo captures my spirit.

    Great pic – sometimes it’s hard to be in front of the camera when you are always behind it. Bravo for getting out there – of course you wouldn’t swap your small dependent being for the world but can come with a claustrophobia of dependence- not to mention the sleep deprivation! The Gourmet feature looks fab.

      Sally, funny enough I grew up in front of the camera and only made the decision to go behind it because I thought that’s where the smart people were. But yeah, I was a TV presenter for the greater part of my career. It’s just now that I am a little camera shy because well, I had a baby and haven’t quite gotten around to me yet 😉

    I can totally relate to your first paragraph. Taking care of the kids fulltime is tough with a husband who works the long hours of a chef. It’s hard, but totally worth it.
