Kitchen without boundaries is the brainchild of the ex pat Australian, Vanessa Baxter. It's about getting people of all ages and abilities engaged in cooking.
She was a Masterchef finalist shortly after settling in Auckland after living many years overseas, including long stints in Vietnam, Indonesia and Singapore.
Now food is at the core of her worklife, and the voluntary work she does. This includes running cooking classes for children, and also for corporate team building sessions.
She talks to Lynn Freeman.
