Lorraine Elliott


Not Quite Nigella (memoir, Penguin 2012)


Lorraine Elliott is a cake and food enthusiast who believes that cakes belong in an art gallery. Born and raised in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney, she lived on the Lower North Shore for 8 years and has now returned to the Eastern Suburbs where she lives with her food-apathetic husband who takes most of the restaurant photos for her blog whilst she takes all the still photos of the food that she cooks.

Her favourite cuisine is French and Japanese (or a fusion between the two). Her last meal would consist of: Bluff oysters au naturel, cream croquettes, Peking duck, honey king prawns, lobster, caviar, fresh Turkish bread, salmon tataki, spanish salami, sun dried tomatoes, roesti, okonomiyaki, fresh figs and dates, a fat, fluffy peshwari naan, wagyu beef and desserts including copious macarons from Herme or Laduree in Paris or Zumbo in Balmain.
