Local Profile - Meera Freeman

I first heard of Meera Freeman many years ago when I went to a cafe she had in Prahran for a fashion networking organisation dinner.  Mr Rosanna then re-discovered her for me when he bought me a gift voucher for Christmas to attend one of her amazing Moroccan cooking classes.  It was one of the best experiences I've ever had.  Needless to say I dream about taking one of her culinary tours to Morocco at some future stage.  She is also an accomplished photographer with her own blog.
Name: Meera Freeman 
Occupation: Food consultant, Tour leader, Author 
Lives/works: Carlton South
How long have you lived/worked here? 16 Years

Describe yourself/what you do:
I have been running my cooking school for 21 years now, teaching Italian, Thai, Moroccan and Vietnamese cuisines.  I have written 3 cookbooks and been involved in many other activities, most recently completing a photography diploma and starting my blog.  For the past ten years, I have been leading cultural and culinary tours to Morocco, a country with simply amazing scenery, perfumes and flavours.  Further details, including the link to my blog, can be found on my website.

Best thing(s) about living/working in Melbourne's north-east:
Such close proximity to the city centre, Victoria Market, Sydney Rd, Lygon St and Victoria St – in fact  - most of the Melbourne's food and cultural precincts.  Walking and public transport gives me quick and easy access to everything that makes Melbourne one of the world's most liveable cities.
