Lisette's love of food started as a child, doing dishes, assisting in the kitchen, and being inspired by her family. She has travelled throughout Europe and Asia, living and working in Italy, Germany, Japan and India, developing and indulging her passion for food. Lisette has worked extensively throughout Australia in many stylish locations, working with a wide variety of food styles and has also imparted her knowledge at cooking classes.
Lisette loves to cook with quality fresh produce – herbs, seasonal vegetables and daily caught seafood. She tries not to have too many confusing flavours and delights in simple and very tasty dishes where the flavours and the aromas can all speak for themselves. She is a passionate, driven cook who always champions the cause of local and regional foods.
I'm Australia's Best BBQ'er because: “My passion for food comes from a traditional Mediterranean lifestyle. Cooking with the best quality local and regional produce, I can combine this with any BBQ, anywhere, to be able to delight and share in simple but tasty dishes where the flavours and aromas speak for themselves. This is one of the best ways to be a perfect host and enjoy life. The unique lifestyle that Darwin and the Territory has to offer is perfect for entertaining at home and outdoor living. Spectacular, tropical gardens beg you to be creative with this style of cooking, not to mention keeping your house cool at the same time.”
