Today on SoapBox Radio I chat to chef and author Ashleigh Levin, as she shares her passion and love of food with me, while giving me a one-on-one cooking lesson straight from her home kitchen.


Show highlights:

  • Ashleigh shares about her family heritage with both a mom and gran in the field and how food remains a time of coming together for the family.
  • Ashleigh remembers how so many personal memories have inspired recipe¬†names like Fall Apart Lamb, My Mom’s Sticky Chicken and Dirty Ballerina Pavlova in her first cookbook, Home Cooked and Heartwarming.
  • Not setting out initially to write a book, Ashleigh talks about her journey to her first book.
  • Being more than just a chef, Ashleigh shares how she juggles many roles including being a mom to two young children.
  • Ashleigh ends off our time together with an insight into new delights she is busy working on and cooking up at the moment.
