Attention: Trudi The Foodie


Even though my career has spanned radio and TV, I have always been interested in cooking and food (tell me someone who isn’t!)

I got my first cookbook on my 7th birthday with a cool, matching Snoopy apron. I have been wowed by all things creations with food ever since.

So fresh.co.nz was borne with that in mind.

There is nothing better than great food and good company and that is what we are all about.

Excellent recipes, tips and food finds that make life easier and more pleasureable.

On this website, you will find brilliant tips, timesavers, recipes, products and competitions.

Plus there is plenty more to come.

We have the choicest recipes and freebies as well as the freshest and best new products in New Zealand supermarkets, delis, wine shops and specialty food stores.

I celebrate excellence, so the products we use and talk about on telly and radio, have got to be top-notch and get the Trudi Tick.

Drop me an email with your favourite product, recipe or kitchen tip – I would love to hear from any keen NZ foodie. Give me some feedback on what you think we are doing right or what we could improve.

Be happy living the good life,
