About the author
Donna Hay is one of the best–known names in cookbook and magazine publishing in the world.

Donna's first job post-TAFE home economics diploma was in the test kitchens of the Australian Women's Weekly. She began to not only develop recipes but to style them, too. Distracted by the plethora of extras : candles, glasses, flowers, sauce boats, fancy folded napkins that went into photographing a dish, Donna started to pare down the props and let the food be the hero. By the time Donna had become the food editor of marie claire magazine her style was set: fresh, modern food on white plates, with simple backgrounds that has captured the imagination of cooks worldwide and set a new benchmark for modern food styling and publishing.
Ten phenomenally successful cookbooks later (including off the shelf and modern classics books 1&2), Donna Hay has a swag of prestigious international food awards. Her popular donna hay magazine continues to inspire cooks of all levels of experience with each new seasonal addition of simple but special recipe and entertaining ideas.
