BONUS EPISODE: Donna Hay on Flavour, Fame and Healthy Hacks

11 Dec 2023

You can tell how excited I was to have Donna Hay visit our studio this week! I’ve been an avid fan for years and we were privileged to have her grace our kitchen to record a recipe for our YouTube channel and even jump on the podcast!

Donna Hay is Australia’s favourite and most trusted home cook, a household name, and an international food-publishing phenomenon. Donna’s 29 books have sold more than 7 million copies worldwide, been translated into 10 different languages, and her television cooking shows have brought her signature style to life for viewers in more than 14 countries.

And when I say signature style, her styling is absolutely iconic and it’s inspired myself as well as many budding home cooks around the world.

Her latest book,  ‘even more basics to brilliance’ is a collection of classics that people can always rely on – those dependable, delicious recipes we all want in our bag of tricks. And is a follow on from the previous book “Basics to Brilliance”

Today we talk about:

  • Injecting flavour into healthy ingredients
  • Her go to store cupboard and pantry ingredients
  • What food styling can do to create anticipation around a meal

I was also interested in her own health hacks and how she keeps healthy when travelling. Plus we talk about her business empire and how she maintains a clear brand presence and identity, despite the wealth of touchpoints from books, cookware, magazines and TV shows.
