Anna Gare developed a passion for cooking from the time she could reach the top of the kitchen bench. She spent her teens and early twenties performing with all-girl band, the Jam Tarts, and cooked in restaurants to support her rock’n’roll lifestyle. When it came time for a change, Anna established Deluxe Catering, which became one of Perth’s most successful catering companies.
Anna’s work in television includes the ABC’s Consuming Passions as Ian Parmenter’s righthand assistant, and The Best in Australia where she co-starred with celebrity chefs Ben O’Donoghue and Darren Simpson. Quickies in my Kitchen on the Lifestyle Channel featured Anna preparing quick and easy recipes while chatting with high-profile guests. And on Junior Masterchef Australia, Channel 10, Anna starred as one of the show’s judges and mentors.
