Biography

You may know Ed best as the cooking presenter on Network 7’s Better Homes and Gardens but he is also a passionate and engaging speaker whose energy and stories are infectious.

For more than ten years Ed has appeared on and hosted a variety of television radio programs, and has been published in newspapers, magazines and books. He has become one of Australia’s best loved media personalities, TV chefs and food authors.

Professionally, Ed has more than twenty years of experience cooking in some of the world’s best restaurants, both in Australia and overseas. As well as a familiar face on our televisions, he is a best-selling author of numerous cooking books and a popular radio personality. His tips and tricks for transforming restaurant food into recipes that can be prepared at home have created millions of culinary moments for everyday Australians.

In his talk, Ed will ask: when was it that food became our enemy? Ed draws upon his 25 years of cooking and writing about food to ask us to shift our expectation of what food means and to find a more affectionate relationship with what we eat. You will be shocked at just how silly some of our most keenly-held beliefs really are.
