G’day! I’m Alice – otherwise known as Alice in Frames – because I love a funky spec, and a pun!
Growing up at the crossroads of Europe & Asia, in Tbilisi, Georgia, my family’s kitchen was always led by what we could grow and how we could make the most of what we had. Emigrating to Australia meant that a whole world of flavours and cuisines were added to my repertoire, but the principles of veg-forward/thrifty-thinking remains.
I’ve written three award-winning cookbooks:
Alice’s Food A-Z to help kids get curious about food
In Praise of Veg to help households fall in love with vegetables
and The Joy of Better Cooking to help build cooking confidence.
So I guess you could say I love helping people!
I used to be a Middle School teacher, which is why you’ll always feel like you’re learning something from my recipes, and I’ve even created a free digital toolkit called Phenomenom that’s used by thousands of parents and teachers all across the world.
These days you’ll find me as the food guru for our national broadcaster here in Australia, writing for major publications, hosting live events and in-conversations with global culinary and cultural superstars, as well as helming a Saturday Breakfast program on the radio, waking up my fellow Melbournians with a spring in their step and a smile on their dial.
I’m always happy to field questions, and love to hear from you when you’re cooking my recipes – no matter whether you find them on my socials, in my books, or via my television and radio appearances.
