Instagram story at a time.”

Jessica Nguyen is a home cook/recipe creator/food influencer/freelancer living in Melbourne, whose mission is to inspire people to cook at home for themselves and for the people around them, one Instagram story at a time.

She shares easy to follow step-by-step recipes on her Instagram via ‘Stories’ which are saved down as ‘Highlights’ for people to refer back to and recreate at any time. She is also currently the ‘Head Cook’ for Shameless Podcast, sharing a recipe every Friday via Instagram and their weekly newsletter.

Whilst she has always been obsessed with food, she spent the last 10 years in the beauty industry working in various Marketing & PR roles, before fatefully being made redundant in March 2020 just as COVID-19 was announced a global pandemic. Unprecedented times became an opportunity to finally turn her food passion into a new career, with her essentially ‘cooking her way out of COVID’ and building it into a full-time gig and business.

Whether you’re an aspiring cook, a terrible cook who wants to get better, looking for  inspiration for your weekly meals, or someone who wants to understand what goes into making a dish, her content will have something for you!
