CELEBRITY CHEF - ANNA GARE
Considered one of Australia’s most loved female celebrity cooks, Anna has won the hearts
of many people while hosting and cooking on prime time television shows.
Before deciding to devote her life to good food, Anna spent her teens singing in an all girl band
and she toured extensively in Australia and the UK while developing a devoted following, but
even then Anna’s passion for food was never far from her thoughts. She poached asparagus in
hotel kettles, ironed salmon (until medium rare) on dressing room ironing tables and wilted
spinach with her hair drier before gigs.... very rock n'roll!
After leaving the band, Anna set up her own catering business, the highly innovative Deluxe
catering in Fremantle, Western Australia which she ran for 12 years. It wasn’t long however
before Anna’s passion for food and her love of performing combined, leading her to a new and
busy career in Television and cooking shows. These shows were not only innovative but gave
Anna the platform to let her warm, funny and infectious personality shine through. Shows
included Junior MasterChef, The Great Australian Bakeoff, The Best in Australia and Quickies
in my Kitchen which featured Anna preparing quick easy recipes while chatting with highprofile
