Australian-born Kate Bradley is a plant based cook, food stylist and freelance recipe developer who lives and works in Melbourne, Australia.  Kate first gave up refined sugar, gluten and all processed foods in late 2012, which completely revolutionised her health and wellbeing, not to mention her cooking style. Kate launched her succesful website Kenko Kitchen so that she can share her passion for simple, tasty and healthy foods and inspire other young cooks. Kate's second book, Bliss Bites, is out now.
