I am a published food writer of The Complete Caribbean Cookbook, Lansdowne Publishing, Sydney, Australia, 1994. I taught my own cookery classes for over 20 years in Sydney and London in a range of cuisines. The highlights were teaching at the Sydney Seafood School, Sydney and at Divertimenti, Marylebone and Chelsea. I have worked in catering for a couple of years as well as food related media.
