This is up-to-the-minute cooking, created with a fresh and imaginative new approach along with lashings of style. Eat Happy tunes into the needs of the home cook, along with experience and feedback Melissa has received throughout the years of putting food on the nation’s tables.

Melissa Hemsley’s key eating philosophies are about comfort, healthy indulgence and bold flavours, with plenty of focus on cutting down on kitchen waste and clever ways to work with leftovers. Her recipes are also inspired by a fusion of food-influences from around the globe and give a nod to Melissa’sFilipino mum.
