Let Fraeona inspire you with delicious recipes

Fraeona Heller is a chef whose passion for life and delicious food has seen her travel the world to work, learn and experience it first-hand.

Growing up a butcher’s daughter with a family life centred on the detail of every meal, her love for food was wholeheartedly encouraged. She started travelling at just 17 – firstly to Denmark and through Europe, then on to Brisbane where she worked at the popular Italian New Farm Deli & Café and back to Chch to become a qualified chef.

She later travelled back to Europe where she worked at London’s Chiswick Restaurant and then on to a dream job in Umbria and Tuscany in Italy with cooking school Tasting Places. Fraeona also worked in a coastal restaurant beside Lake Bracciano, in Anguillara just south of Rome. She also travelled and enjoyed the cuisine through Italy, France, Spain, Portugal and Morocco. Moving to Melbourne, she landed a job at renowned Richmond Hill Café & Larder owned by the Australian food legend Stephanie Alexander.
