Annabelle White

Popular television and radio cooking personality Annabelle White is synonymous with good food and fun times in the kitchen. Annabelle believes that keeping food simple, easy, “confidence building” and delicious, mixed with plenty of tips, funny quips and great recipes make for good times for family and friends.

Annabelle was a long time food columnist for the Sunday Star-Times and also wrote the popular Food Detective column. She is the former food editor for NZ House & Garden and the New Zealand Women’s Weekly. She is now devoting her efforts to her website – www.annabellewhite.com.

The author of eleven cookbooks Annabelle is also busy with cooking classes and the public speaking circuit. In 2009 the University of Waikato recognised her with the Distinguished Alumni award. Annabelle holds a history degree (MA First Class Hons) from Waikato University.

Annabelle was born and raised in New Zealand and while she does not have formal chef’s training her love of “great honest cooking” came from watching her mother cook every day after school. Annabelle’s extensive travels continue to be a great motivating factor in appreciating the global kitchen and learning about good food.
