When it comes to Instagram foodies, Ashley Alexander is considered top tier stuff. The Australian foodie, recipe developer, and stylist is known for her mouthwatering posts that often include detailed recipes that leave no cook behind.
“I believe enjoying beautiful food with the people I love is one of life’s simple pleasures,” writes Alexander on her website. “Many of my fondest memories are from around the kitchen table; meaningful moments spent while sharing a meal with others.”
Indeed, when it comes to her upbringing, she admits to spending a lot of her formative years in the kitchen, cooking up a storm with her mum. A self-taught cook, Alexander recalls preparing three-course meals for dinner parties by the time she was 12!
“Whether it’s a quiet night in with friends or an extravagant Christmas lunch celebrating with extended family, these moments are treasured and are almost always centered around food,” she reflects.
According to Alexander, her love for food has inspired her to try new things and push her cooking skills, which now puts an emphasis on baking (her cakes alone have got us drooling!). With most of us homebound these days, now is a great time to refine our cooking skills and head to the kitchen!
