Lyndey Milan is one of Australia’s most recognised food, wine and lifestyle personalities with a media career spanning television, radio and print. Her forte is presenting seemingly complicated ideas in an easy, straight-forward and entertaining manner.
In October 2010 Lyndey announced a couple of new projects. Firstly, the December 2010 launch of a dedicated facility for culinary and lifestyle filming and photography in Artarmon, to be called the Sydney Studio Kitchen. Featuring clever customised, interchangeable components and equipment, crew and other services for hire, it will also be the headquarters of Lyndey Milan Enterprises. Lyndey has also formed a production company that will focus on unique television offers to be filmed and marketed around the world.
In mid-2010 Lyndey launched the Brilliant Cut Knife – the first time in her 25 year food industry career she has put her name to a product. Developed in conjunction with Forever Knives Japan, the knife features leading edge technology that delivers incredible sharpness, lightness, durability and cutting prowess. The blade’s alloy is a world-first – combining diamonds for strength, silver for anti-bacterial properties, ceramic for sharpness and titanium for flexibility and resistance to corrosion.
In March 2010 Lyndey released her seventh book, Just Add Spice (Penguin), co-authored with Ian ‘Herbie’ Hemphill and in late 2009 Lyndey released The Best Collection, Fast, Fabulous Recipes (New Holland). Balance. Matching Food and Wine. What Works and Why (Hachette), co-authored with Colin Corney won Fine Wine Partners Best Food and Wine Writing at the Vittoria Australian Food Media Awards in 2006.
