Alison Roman's no-fuss brilliance and sense of fun have made her the most talked-about food writer of the moment. In her internationally acclaimed cookbooks, recipe columns and Instagram feed, she combines the sunny style of her Californian upbringing with the snappy sensibility of the New York she calls home in food that puts flavour over faff every time.
Dubbed "the New York Nigella" for her style and ease in the kitchen and liked to Julia Child for empowering home cooks, Alison was born in LA, worked at Momofuku Milk Bar in New York in its early days, and then took a job at Bon Appétit where she started publishing great recipes to an even greater following and hasn't looked back since. Her 2017 book Dining In was a best-seller and her new latest, Nothing Fancy, shows every sign of being the most talked-about cookbook of the summer.
In addition to her monthly contributions to Bon App, Alison writes a column for the New York Times cooking section, another for the new Good Food magazine in The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald, and maintains a following of more than 307,000 followers on Instagram. Originally from Los Angeles, she lives in Brooklyn "until she decides to move upstate like everybody else". This will be Alison's first visit to Australia.
Get to know Alison a little better over a fun and casual three-course lunch inspired by her singular style with matched drinks at Stokehouse St Kilda prepared by Jason Staudt and the Stokehouse team.
