Jennifer Danter

Let’s get to know each other: I’m a food writer, recipe developer and food stylist. I love to cook. I really love to eat. Better yet, it’s my pleasure to make it look good too. I am the consummate table-setter: I adore linens, all shapes of plates, funky bowls, old cutlery, bright colours and patterns, odd shaped glassware and anything with texture excites me. In this column I hope to share easy meal ideas, try new dishes and food projects and create a little moment of beauty. Fingers crossed. Looking forward to hearing from you too. Talk to me about what you like (or don’t) and are interested in. Let’s get to it!
