Emma Cook

Emma Cook is a passionate food lover, Box Hill Institute student and finalist in the Young Chef Olympiad 2017. Emma is currently studying Certificate III in Commercial Cookery, and has always wanted to be a chef. Her passion has been inspired by helping her dad out in the kitchen and then working at her uncle’s catering company, as well as participating in the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program at Whitehorse Primary School – one of the first schools to take up the program. Emma will take delegates through a few of her favourite simple dishes, and the audience will also hear about her experiences in the Kitchen Garden Program and how other students might get involved.
