Emma Dean 2

Emma Dean (Sunday Only)

Emma Dean is a cook, forager, baker and author, and the winner of the 2013 series of MasterChef Australia. Her first cookbook A Homegrown Table (published in December 2013) is a collection of over 100 recipes that beautifully captures Emma’s hobby-farm origins.

Emma’s passion for food began in the paddocks and kitchen of her regional Victoria childhood home.

Her parents instilled a love of growing and cooking farm-fresh produce in Emma and from her youngest years she was taught to knead bread, grow vegies, and collect freshly-laid eggs.

Emma’s beautiful cooking style is inspired by a combination of her regional upbringing and her enthusiasm for urban foraging, resulting in dishes that mix classic ingredients with the more unusual and adventurous.

Emma lives in an inner-city suburb of Melbourne. As a speaker on the topic of food sustainability she travels far and wide sharing her love and expertise of food with audiences in Australia and internationally.
