If you’ve ever aspired to writing a food blog, take food photographs, style food or just plain write - here’s your chance to found out how its done from Australia’s best blogger - all with some glorious food and a glass of wine.

Join us on Friday 30th May for an evening with renowned blogger Sneh Roy of the award-winning blog, Cook Republic and now author of Tasty Express released this month.

Sneh was recognised last year as Australia’s best blogger (not just food blogger!).

We’ll be chatting with Sneh about her career as a food blogger, her new cookbook (its rather delicious) her delicious inventive recipes, her food influences and her luscious photography - she shoots with a Canon 5D (all of which have earned her legions of devoted followers).

Sneh’s inspirations include the cosmopolitan eats of the urban food truck and inner city café, the fresh variety of a lively market and the unforgettable aromas of her childhood in India. These influences are then turned into healthy often vegetarian or vegan friendly takes on comfort foods like tacos, flatbreads, veggie burgers, granola and froyo, plus a few irresistibly naughty treats.

Some of the wonderful dishes in Tasty Express include: Coconut Bircher Muesli, Carrot Cake Muffins, Kulfi Milk, Eggplant Lasagna Steaks, Kale Soup With Grilled Cheese, Brown Rice Biryani Salad, Quinoa Spice Croquettes, Sweet Potato And Pepita Burgers, Tofu And Cashew Curry, Burnt Butter Caramel Slice, Coconut Froyo and Gingerbread Tiramisu.
