Lisa’s background is in advertising but her heart has always been in food. Her passion for all things culinary led her to opening her first cookery school - Cupcake Academy in Sunninghill, Johannesburg where she taught packed-out classes the art of easy, impactful cooking and creative entertaining. She came to live in Israel in 2006 and in 2007 opened the doors to the Delicious! Kitchen - a cookery school based on her school in South Africa. Her workshops are booked to capacity with keen students of all ages and nationalities. She lives in Hod Hasharon with her three children “who regularly eat breakfast cereal for meals when I am too busy teaching to cook for them” says Lisa.
