Welcome Chef Gillian
Gillian has always loved every minute of her
time in the kitchen and has a lifelong passion
for bringing people together over memorable
food experiences & of course, wine!
Her first dish she ever made by herself was a ...
salmon loaf - thankfully she’s come a LONG
way from there.
While finishing her graduate diploma in
education while living in Australia, Gillian
worked closely with wines companies and
started hosting wine-pairing-style dinners from
As the guests continued to return on the
regular, request recipes as well, Gillian was
inspired to start her own blog and business. As
of May 2010 “One Blonde Chef” became her
blog, passion project and motivation.
Gillian’s approach in the kitchen is to combine
simple techniques inspired by traditional
international flavours to create impressive, yet
approachable dishes. Plus, she loves to have
some fun and put her own take on things such
as ackee & saltfish phyllo cups, finished
with a roasted tomato or her signature dish
of braised beef cheek, served on celeriac and
potato puree, finished with fresh herbs.
It’s Gillian’s passion to bring people together
over food and she always looks forward to
having you “Be a Guest at Your Own Event!”
