The secret ingredient is love

I have called Australia home for over 30 years now but I still remain very connected to Fiji.  I have travelled since I was very young, from living in Penzance, Cornwall in England to regular visits to Paris and many other places in between.  Travelling has allowed me to discover new places but more importantly new flavours and tastes yet I still crave the food of my childhood.

The Tropical Vegetarian

Treasured Recipes and Stories from my Fijian Indian Family. My aim with this book is to document the food of my ancestors. The preservation of my family recipes is my way of acknowledging my ancestors’ hard work, sweat, blood and tears, and ensuring that their memories live on.

Your book has given my mother such much comfort since the passing away of my dad 10 months ago! She can relate to the recipes that you have shared. She is your biggest fan... tells everyone to purchase your book 😍
