As a freelance food writer, adventure and new challenges inspire me.
Tracey’s career so far has spanned 28 years. Her passion for food has taken her, as a chef, around the world and back.
Tracey finds her inspiration to cook in everyday life and working with food and cooking comes naturally.
In 1999, she launched her own catering company, designing gourmet menus and recipes. At this time Tracey was introduced to the world of food advertising and worked alongside Allyson Gofton on Watties Food in a Minute.
Now a mother to Sophie (13) and Eliza (9) Tracey continues to whip up recipes while juggling family life, and is now dedicated to designing food that complements our busy lifestyle.
Over the past 15 years Tracey has focused on food writing and food styling work. Her creative talents include writing recipes for Taste Magazine, Healthy Food Guide Magazine and Food Magazine, various advertising agencies and private companies.
Tracey worked as a full time food writer for My Food Bag, writing recipes and styling photos for Gourmet and Classic bags plus using her experience as a chef and mother to launch the Family Food Bag in 2014. She is currently working as a freelance food writer and food stylist for Taste Magazine and Nadia Magazine
