Jody Vassallo is one of the new wave of Australian cookbook authors presenting beautiful and healthy food and we’re very excited to be having an evening of conversation and tastes with Jody on Monday the 20th to celebrate the launch of her new book Beautiful Food: healthy recipes to nourish you inside & out. arte
Jody may not be an immediate household name but it’s almost a certainty that you’ve tried her food, seen it on TV or cooked from a cookbook she’s worked on!
Jody has been working on cookbooks for almost 20 years, first with Donna Hay as a recipe writer, stylist and tester, then moving to Murdoch as a Food Director and then authoring a number of Marie Claire cookbooks. Jody has also published 18 health orientated cookbooks under her own imprint Fortiori and another 15 regional cuisine books overseas.
Jody now works as a stylist, consultant cook and recipe writer for a wide range of customers including River Cottage Australia and Jamie’s Ministry of Food.
If we’ve given you the impression that it’s all about style, however, nothing could be further from the truth. True this is a beautifully photographed book but the low GI, gluten free and allergy friendly recipes deliver on flavour and interest. Jody has always developed healthy recipes and given her interest in Ayurvedic principles the more than 130 recipes in Beautiful Food are truly healthy.
We’re really looking forward to cooking from this!
Join us for an evening of lovely tastes & great conversation!
