At the age of eight, Donna Hay skipped into a kitchen, picked up a mixing bowl and never looked back. She moved to the world of magazine test kitchens and publishing, where she established her trademark style of simple, smart and seasonal recipes all beautifully put together and photographed. It is food for every cook, every food lover, every day and every occasion. Her unique style turned her into an international food-publishing phenomenon as a bestselling author of 20 cookbooks, publisher of donna hay magazine, newspaper columnist, and creator of a homewares and food range.
Paulette Mitchell is known internationally for her quick-to-prepare recipes with gourmet flair. She has taught cooking for 27 years and is a lecturer, television personality, and the author of 10 cookbooks. She lives in Minneapolis.
