Often we all work ourselves into a complete state…for me it is simply due to my fabulous foodie obsessed schedule! Yes, it is my fault – as I say ‘yes’ to everything! How can I not – exciting television and stage demonstrations, food styling and constant recipe creation – oh what a life! But last week it took its toll and I needed to escape…. well I did with my family and dearest friends.
Escaping to our friends cabin, snuggled beside a rippling river and shaded by enormous gum trees. Just waiting for walks, tree climbing and plenty of sitting around that camp fire complete with great conversation, music, and a good book.

As a very busy food consultant who some how juggles my full working life with a very busy household…. putting a delicious, varied, exciting, economical, quick meal together in 20 minutes – well yes it can even daunt me! Really – well not often but lately I have been racing around with International, interstate and local travel doing demos, TV, food styling and loads of recipe developement – and don’t forget my forever hungry teenage family… so my KitchenAid is yet again my savour.
The MVSA Rotary Slicer Shredder – ‘she’ can do it all! “Various slicing, shredding & grating of just about everything in my fridge helps me create within minutes.
The attachment has a series of stainless steel drums that fit into the housing of the attachment and slice, shred or grate away from speed 1 right up to speed 10 ( I due to time, or lack of often work on speed 10).
