Welcome to All The Things, a podcast that offers nourishment of a particular kind – the kind that is filled with slow cooked conversations, for those curious as to how others go about navigating this thing we call life. And also what to eat along the way. It’s all the things because it’s All The Things!

Dr Vanessa Kimbell

The Medicine of Baking

Dr. Vanessa Kimbell is a leading expert in nutrition and the digestibility of bread. Her doctorate focuses on Baking as Lifestyle Medicine, specialising in personalising bread for gut health and genetics. She is also the Course Director at The Sourdough School in the UK, a world-renowned centre of research and education in bread, the gut microbiome, and the impact of bread on health. She is currently writing her 6th book and is, put simply, my food superhero. You’ll never look at a sandwich in the same way again after this chat!

Whether you’re in the US, UK, Europe, or here in Australia, you can find my new cookbook, A Plant-based Farmhouse here.

Amy Chaplin

She Speaks My Love Language

Now living in upstate New York, but raised in rural New South Wales, Amy’s approach to food is inspired by nature and the healing benefits of whole foods. She speaks my love language. So you can only imagine the squeal that I didn’t even try to contain, when she wrote lovely things about my new cookbook, released in the US this week. There’s also a good deal of chat about nettles. As there should be!

Whether you’re in the US, UK, Europe, or here in Australia, you can find my new cookbook, A Plant-based Farmhouse here.

Lean Timms

Natural Light

Lean’s approach to photography is driven by natural light, in situ spontaneity, storytelling, sharing and capturing a genuine sense of place. Lean is also the photographer that I had at the top of my list when I was asked to put together my dream team for my very first cookbook. And if you think we didn’t relive the tea-fuelled dance moves and delicious memories of that very special photoshoot in this chat, think again Batman.

If you would like to experience the most delicious backstage pass to the making of A Plant-based Farmhouse in the Barossa stables where it all happened with Lean, Lee and Cherie, please find more information and tickets for the event here.

Annabelle Hickson

Beauty, Freedom and Opportunity

Annabelle Hickson, editor of Galah magazine, and creator of beautiful new book by the same name, is all about flying the flag of beauty, freedom and opportunity for regional Australia and the people who live their lives there. She is all substance and zero pretence – our kinda girl! We chat about AI, handling criticism, handling success, emojis and sex on kitchen benches – all the normal country conversations.

Beata Alfoldi

Life Is The Ceremony

If you ever wanted to find encouragement to walk your talk, Beata is your girl. The choices Beata has made from the place of deep grief after losing her son in childbirth are nothing short of profound. Yes, this is a conversation about navigating the darkest days of grief, but it is also about what sits beyond that. It couldn’t be more inspiring.

Natasha Morgan

A Masterclass In Intuition

Natasha Morgan’s life is one of the most inspiring examples of what happens when contemplation meets challenge. Her path may have seemed idyllic via her famous Instagram feed, but you’ve probably guessed there’s a little more to this story, and the twists and turns intuition had to offer.

Sasha Baranikov

Success is a Creative Business

Imagine being so successful in the world of business that you can redefine the concept of success itself. That’s exactly what award-winning entrepreneur, Sasha Baranikov did after her tech start-up sold for an eye-watering amount in under 10 years. Her incredibly honest conversation about exactly what success costs on every other level but financial, may not match the fairytale we’ve all been conditioned to believe in.

Troy Woodcroft

How Do I Get To Broadway?

Can you remember the purity of inspiration with no strings attached? Troy Woodcroft can. His raw, and often hilarious, rendition of being the only boy in his ballet school in Darwin, through to performing on Broadway, gives us a chance to jump into his magical headspace. He was Peter Pan, after all.
