Her Nana taught her how to look and see what you have in your pantry and fridge, and then cook a most magnificent meal. And she has continued this love with her own adult children who love to cook. She has over 500 cookbooks that she uses for inspiration and her greatest love is to cook for family and friends and to see the enjoyment on their faces.
She says “My favourite meal is one I created. I had visited a farmers market and brought a savoury crepe. I thought ‘I’m going give this a try at home’ and the result ended up to be my favourite meal. A buckwheat crepe with roasted pumpkin, caramelised onions with thyme, baby spinach out of my veggie garden, walnuts, blue cheese....the result is divine.“
Wendy created this recipe as it’s a one-bowl-miracle that all her friends and family keep asking her to make. Wendy has been told several times that she should open a cafe or at least try out for Masterchef.Carly’s Herbalicious Salmon Pastry PieBy adminOur 3rd finalist is Carly Rurehe who describes herself as “a way too busy mum who is always making mistakes, always learning but always appreciative of the love of my two boys and a military husband.
