My name is Trish and I am a Construction Project Manager, freelance food writer and passionate cook. I have written for SMH’s Good Living, Eat and Drinks Sydney and The Foodies Guide. 3 years ago I found out I am intolerant to many different foods and now I follow a FODMAP’s diet. The worst foods for me are gluten, lactose and onions which I do steer clear of. I now experiment with classic recipes and adapt to make them my own, although I still love to cook ‘normal’ for friends and family.
Although I work in construction, relationships are only developed over food and wine, so for me it is the perfect industry where I can talk about food with colleagues and enjoy new restaurants all the time. Since I started forque, I have learnt Greek from my family, studied Italian and Spanish books and more recently traveled to Peru to learn from my new family over there. I still don’t cook asian due to my intolerances to soy sauce and onions as it nearly makes it impossible to eat.
My original website was deleted in 2011 due to back of house technicalities with my server providers. It was a horrible time and I did loose a lot of travel stories through France and Italy, so this version of forque is constantly evolving and I endeavor to always keep learning.
Thank you for supporting forque!
