Simple, healthy and delicious food for busy people from popular cook and dietician Nadia Lim.
Nadia Lim, author of Nadia's Kitchen and Nadia Lim's Good Food Cookbook, and winner of Masterchef NZ in 2011, trained as a dietician and nutritionist at the University of Otago. Born in Auckland, she lived in Malaysia for seven years with her family. Growing up in two different cultures helped broaden Nadia's food knowledge and palate greatly. As a teenager she discovered her natural flair for cooking and knew she wanted a career in food. She worked for Auckland District Health Board for a few years, before winning MasterChef, after which she has worked for Regal Salmon and in the kitchen of Simon Gault's restaurant, Euro. Her major project has been the weekly home-delivery meal service My Food Bag, which she set up with 2012 Businesswoman of the Year Cecilia Robinson and prominent business leader Theresa Gattung: Nadia provides nutritious seasonal recipes with all the required quality, free-range ingredients. She writes regularly for the New Zealand Herald's Bite magazine, and for Food Magazine. See more at www.nadia.co.nz.
