Dani Valent melbourne food writer


One of Australia’s most respected voices in food, working across digital, print and books to bring stories to life.

Dani was working as a travel author for publisher Lonely Planet when her boss threw down a challenge. “We need somebody to go to Turkey…to eat,” he said.

That’s me, said Dani, catapulting herself into a new career.

From the very first day investigating yoghurt in Istanbul, Dani was captivated by the rich possibilities of telling human stories through food.
