ABC Culinary Correspondent, MC & Speaker, Author

You can make friends with salad, and Alice Zaslavsky is here to prove it. As the ABIA award-winning author of In Praise of Veg, Culinary Correspondent for ABC News Breakfast and ABC Radio nationally, and creator of food literacy projects like Phenomenom, she wants every home cook – no matter their age or ability – to feel empowered to make something delicious and share it with the people they love.

More about Alice Zaslavsky:

Alice Zaslavsky is the freshest voice in Australian food, widely recognised for her modern, accessible approach to cooking and eating.

Her first book, Alice’s Food A-Z (2015) is the only cookbook ever to be given a Notable Book gong by the Children’s Book Council of Australia. Her second, In Praise of Veg has been translated into multiple languages and was awarded the 2020 ABIA for Best Illustrated Non-Fiction.

The former head of department-turned-Masterchef crowd favourite has spent close to a decade helping individuals (both big and small) join the dots between cuisine, culture and sustainability. She served time as The Weekly Review’s Food Editor to a circulation of 630,000 homes across Melbourne, and is a regular contributor for such publications as Good Food, The Guardian and Broadsheet.

Alice is Culinary Correspondent for ABC News Breakfast and ABC Radio nationally, co-host of Short Cuts to Glory on ABC and SBS, and has notched up a combined 350 episodes as host of Kitchen Whiz and Crunch Time on Channel Go!

Alice Zaslavsky is recognised both closer to home and globally as a unique talent in the hosting space. Increasingly sought after for her gastronomic expertise and gravitas, as well as her capacity to engage an audience and deliver key messaging in warm and authentic ways, Alice’s ability to bring out the best in her guests during Q&As and panels has seen her repeatedly requested by household names like Rick Stein and Nigella Lawson. She specialises in hosting live events with translators, including Iron Chef Live (feat. the original Japanese Iron Chefs) and the Estrella Damm Gastronomy Congress (feat. some of the world’s best Spanish and Basque chefs).

As a super-taster and specialty food judge, Alice has adjudicated the Grand Champion at the Fine Food Awards (4 years), Grand Dairy Awards (3 years) as well as American Barbecue competitions through KCBS international certification. She is also the creator of her own range of condiments and flavour shortcuts, including the smash-hit Tumami by Alice.

With the support of government and industry, Alice created the multimillion-dollar education resource Phenomenom and innovative Nomcast podcast to help nudge the needle on family vegetable consumption. The program was voted “Best Healthy Eating Campaign in Australia” by Parents’ Voice, and continues to inspired teachers, parents and children nationwide. She also spearheaded the creation of the Melbourne Food Bowl Virtual Farm, an interactive tool helping students to connect with regenerative agriculture practises in meaningful ways.

Always a teacher at heart, Alice believes that everyone should be able to read food the way that they can words, and that it’s equally as important that they do.

When she’s not tapping away at her desk, on stage hosting international culinary talent, or in-studio beaming from ear to ear, she’s likely to be in the kitchen, sharing recipes and ideas to her 75K-strong following via @aliceinframes.
