The invitation comes only months after Annabel’s 13-episode TV series The Free Range Cook: Simple Pleasures launched on Public Television channels across the USA, showcasing the best of New Zealand artisanal produce against a backdrop of spectacular landscapes.

A familiar face on our TV screens, Annabel is now capturing the hearts of Americans with her down-to-earth style. An astute businesswoman, Annabel heads a multidisciplinary media company, her award-winning television series airs in more than 90 countries and she has written and published 22 cookbooks, which have sold over two million copies internationally.

Following her appearance on The Today Show in New York, Annabel is jetting to San Francisco to attend the glittering Taste Awards. Her The Free Range Cook: Simple Pleasures TV series has been nominated for four awards, including the Viewers’ Choice Award for Best Home Chef in a TV Series.

Annabel has worked with NZTE and Tourism New Zealand to enter the US market, with both organisations helping her business make high-value connections.“Being from a small and geographically isolated country, one of the most powerful tools we can leverage is the vast international network of successful New Zealanders who are willing to fly the flag and amplify the message when it comes to promoting our homeland,” says Annabel.
