Bio Profile / Wiki Information

Introduction :

  • As a world-renowned chef and journalist, Maeve O’Meara is known best for being the host of the Australian cooking show Food Safari.

Personal Life & Family Background :

  • One of O’Meara’s earliest childhood memories is of her kicking a nun on her first day of grammar school. The woman had “emerged from the shadows” and the terrified O’Meara lashed out immediately.
  • The thrill of that danger stood with her, however, and when she got a bit earlier, she decided she wanted to be a stuntwoman.
  • Growing up in Sydney, she often had plenty of room to get into dangerous antics with her younger brother, Matt, and would do so on a regular basis. It wasn’t until her mother introduced soy sauce into their household that her interests began to change from jumping off of walls and trees to cooking.
  • Both her mother and father had Irish ancestry, and the food they cooked for their children reflected this. Once her mother got ahold of soy sauce, she began cooking a sort of Irish stir-fry. That was the moment O’Meara realized food could be interesting.
