Steph de Sousa

Steph de Sousa (Spicy Steph) is a celebrity amateur cook known for her spicy palette and sassy attitude.

For mother of four Steph De Sousa, there is nothing like cooking beautiful, wholesome and flavoursome food for those she loves. And it’s this passion she hopes to turn into her food dream, creating a place just like “going to Mum’s for dinner” while also hosting cooking classes and demonstrations. 

Inspired by Maggie Beer, Rick Stein and Sri Lankan Peter Kuruvita, Steph also holds a special place for Stephanie Alexander, her own maiden name. When she’s not cooking she practices daily yoga and lives by the mantra she once heard from swimming great Kieran Perkins – find what you love, and do it eight hours a day.

Where do I start.  Life has certainly been an interesting (is that the right word?) adventure for me.  The saying, “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” is pretty appropriate in my case I think.
