Known for her platinum pixie-cut and no-nonsense attitude, Jackie has been featured in numerous TV shows and magazine articles in Australia and around the world.

She puts theory into practice serving up some of the most authentic Asian food you’ll ever have the pleasure of experiencing, as well as giving a Southeast Asian twist to everyday Australian dishes.
