Hi, I’m Dezi Madafferi & welcome to Dezi Cooks.
Every morning I wake up thinking of what I am going to make for dinner that night. It’s my favourite meal of the day.
I am so passionate about home cooking & entertaining because I believe that food brings family & friends together like nothing else. As a wife and working mum of 2, who enjoys the occasional jog along the beach, I don’t have time for complicated recipes. I love keeping things simple and delicious.
I am married to an Italian greengrocer, and therefore am so fortunate to have fresh ingredients and seasonal produce at my fingertips.
My mother and father migrated to Australia 45 years ago from Greece. My father was a fishmonger, my mother also worked in our fresh fish shop. On the weekends my mother would make the most amazing cakes and Greek desserts. My mother is a great cook who manages to create delicious meals with no recipe or precise measurements. It is all by look, feel & taste. My life has always revolved around family & food. Sharing, celebrating & enjoying homemade food together has always been a big part of my life.
My hope is that I can inspire you to do the same. To find joy and love in the kitchen and to do it from the heart. To make life easier for all my fellow cooks out there, I have created FOUR TASTY SEASONINGS that you can use at home to make delicious meals. They are full of flavour, love and free from any nasties and fillers. Sprinkle onto any of your favourite protein, cook and enjoy. The flavours will take you from the magical Greek islands, across the seas to your kitchen in Australia.
Thanks for visiting,
I hope you enjoy my story, my food journey and my seasonings.
