Janelle Bloom is one of Australia's most-loved TV chefs and food writers. She believes good cooking begins with confidence and a little patience. Her recipes are foolproof, easy-to-follow and use seasonal ingredients that are readily available. What's more, each one has to taste every bit as good as it looks.
Janelle is one of the original chefs who inspire viewers every day on the high-rating Network 10/Southern Star production Ready Steady Cook, now in its eighth year on air. She describes the show as 'challenging and chaotic, but the most fun I've had in a kitchen and the best job I have ever had!'
Janelle's gorgeous bestselling cookbook Fast, Fresh & Fabulous was published in 2008. A beautiful collection of many of her special recipes, Janelle hopes the book will encourage readers to try her no-fuss approach to food that both family and friends will love. Having hit the bestsellers list, Janelle has since produced three follow-up titles: Family Food & Weekend Feasts, Fab Food for Family & Friends and My Favourite Food For All Seasons.
Janelle has contributed to numerous publications as a food editor, writer and food stylist for over 18 years. She consults to organisations including Australian Mushroom Growers, Moraitis Fresh Produce and the Heart Foundation and has been part of the audition team searching for Masterchef contestants for 2012 and the mini masterchefs who cooked their way into our hearts in 2011.
Janelle contributes to numerous charities and community programs including Ronald McDonald House and Randwick, where she has been an Ambassador for six years as well as a weekly volunteer 'Working as a volunteer puts everything into perspective' Janelle believes; 'It's something we should all do'.
