Kate Gibbs is a Sydney-based journalist; food, travel and lifestyle writer, and Blogger and author. She writes a weekly food trends column in sunday style Magazine called fine foodie and her blog the kitchen inc., a food, travel and Design blog combines news, practical advice and recipes.
She has written for The Sydney Morning Herald, The Wall Street Journal Asia, Sunday Life in The Sun Herald, Australian Gourmet Traveler, Luxury Travel magazine, Delicious magazine, The London Evening Standard, frankie and Cosmopolitan. She co-authored The Foodies Guide to Sydney in 2011, 2012, 2013, and has been a major contributor to SMH Everyday Eats and the SMH Good Cafe Guide for many years running, as a food reviewer.
She has written two cookbooks, Thrifty Kitchen and After Toast and her third book, a memoir, will be released in 2015. Having always enjoyed a love of writing, Kate first studied a Bachelor of Education before going on to post grad study, completing a Masters in Arts & Journalism. Today, she is an interviewer, a reviewer, a researcher, and a writer, but having grown up as the granddaughter of Australia’s cooking legend Margaret Fulton it was inevitable that she would also one day end up as a cook.
Says Kate, “As a child, I thought everyone ate like we did. I’d turn up to school with sandwiches filled with fresh poached chicken, homemade herby mayonnaise and sliced almonds and other kids would say “oh my goodness that looks amazing”. From early on, I was taught the eat-well-all-the-time thing. I decided very early on that if I was going to eat, it might as well be fabulous.”
Passionate about inspiring others to good health, in the June 2013 issue of Madison magazine, Kate was named one of Australia’s Top 100 most inspiring women in the area of health. She has worked with a number of health-focused brands, organisations and associations and is dedicated to helping people realise they’re the master of their own health and bodies.” In all the fuss of amazing dining-out and takeaway options, and the rush of our daily lives, I think we sometimes need to reboot and remember to just cook a lovely meal for ourselves, full of locally sourced fresh fruit, meat and vegetables. An experienced cook and food stylist, Kate also develops recipes and fronts and styles food shoots.
“Having a wonderful no-fuss attitude to food is what has always appealed to me as a cook, an eater and a writer. The kitchen is a place where miracles can happen.”
