About The Groove Mamma:
Nadine Hughes, aka The Groove Mamma, is a renaissance woman whose forte is making food fun again. Mother of two young boys, wife, serial entrepreneur, world traveler and food expert extraordinaire, Nadine is a woman who literally walks the talk. When she tells the world that no matter how busy you are, you can still throw a fantastic party- she means it because she’s done it herself! And she shows you how you can too in a humourous and relatable manner. Nadine’s style is relaxed, smart, sophisticated, and as a businesswoman, her business acumen is spot on.
Today, Nadine is the owner and creator of The Cook’s Companion, through which she offers kitchen consultations and menu planning services. She also runs a hands-on cooking and entertaining school offering classes to adults and teens throughout Southern Ontario. An award winning author, Nadine’s eCookbook, “The Groove Mamma Goes Gourmet: Easy Ways to Put the Fun Back into Entertaining”, was awarded the Best Canadian Entertaining Cookbook by the 2009 Gourmand World Cookbook Awards. In it, even the most hesitant party thrower is encouraged to gather friends and family together for some adult-time because even grown ups and parents need a break! She is also an avid social media user through her blog and twitter and is often called upon for “emergency” cooking and entertaining advice. Nadine frequently appears as a television and radio guest, is a sought after public speaker and is a freelance writer with monthly columns in over 30 national online and print magazines.
