Chelsea Winter

Book for an event

Chelsea Winter has made a career of ‘no-nonsense’ food that utilises familiar ingredients easily sourced from your local supermarket. The author of three bestselling cookbooks — Homemade Happiness, Everyday Delicious and At My Table — and an all-round lover of good food, she is passionate about creating home-style recipes that are simple to prepare yet look great and taste fantastic. To Chelsea food is a way of bringing people and families together, because time shared around the dinner table with loved ones is simply invaluable. A winner of MasterChef New Zealand, she is constantly looking for new and inventive ways to inspire Kiwi home cooks.


'My philosophy? Relax, man! Eat home-cooked food as often as you can, using fresh, quality ingredients. Enjoy meals around the table, chatting with family and friends. Treat yourselves often with homemade desserts and baking (that’s very important).'

Chelsea Winter

'[Chelsea's] philosophy about eating flies in the face of all the fads that we are bombarded with everyday – low carb, no carb, low-fat, anti-sugar...'

Danielle Nicholson, Hamilton News (NZ)

'Life’s too short to eat bad food. And I still think butter makes the world a better place.'
