“I am a chef and I am a food and beverage educator. I believe in the alchemy that takes place when food, wine, and culture come together as a shared experience. I love to teach – to me it’s all about shared enjoyment and the excitement of discovery.”


In addition to being an adjunct instructor in the Food Studies Department of The New School in New York City, Annette has designed culinary and beverage curricula for renowned culinary institutions, such as The International Culinary Center (aka The French Culinary Institute), The Institute of Culinary Education, and The Culinary Institute of America at Greystone.

Annette holds a Masters of Arts in Gastronomy (University of Adelaide), a Grand Diplôme in Culinary Arts (French Culinary Institute), and an International Spirits certification (WSET). She is a food and beverage educator and consultant, as well as a published author and columnist.
