Nadia Lim’s Food Philosophy Up For Debate at Dunedin City Library


Dunedin (Monday 4 November 2013) – Nadia Lim, author of Nadia's Kitchen and winner of Masterchef NZ in 2011, is coming to Dunedin City Library on Monday 18 November to share her passion for ‘real food’ and to talk about her latest book, Nadia Lim’s Good Food Cookbook.

Nadia has gained a reputation for making healthy food taste amazing, and her ideas for delicious meals that are good value and easy to prepare are perfect for busy people, and those on a budget – students take note!

Nadia was born in Auckland and lived in Malaysia for seven years with her family. Her mother is a New Zealander and her father is Malaysian Chinese, cultures which influence her recipes as well as her knowledge of food and flavour.

A graduate of the University of Otago, where she trained as a dietician and nutritionist, Nadia now writes regularly for Food Magazine and the New Zealand Herald's Bite magazine, as well as running her own company, My Food Bag, a home-delivery service providing nutritious meals using free-range seasonal ingredients. She is also a great supporter of various charitable organisations including Diabetes NZ, the Heart Foundation and the Hospice.

At the end of the evening, there will be an opportunity for people to ask questions, have their books signed and to purchase copies of Nadia’s books.

At the Port of Tauranga, there have been 26 serious accidents since 2011, and two deaths. More>>
