Former Australian fashion designer, Le Cordon Bleu-alumni, publisher of entertaining website thehostess.com.au and her first self-published book “At home with the hostess”, Stephanie Conley is a lover of home cooking and making healthy and simple meals with easy recipes with an emphasis on good produce and plate styling.

After enjoying success with her fashion label, Stephanie decided to move away from fashion in 2008 and lived in Italy where she developed her love of food, cooking and the European way of life. This led her to documenting her Mediterranean style food on her blog thehostess.com.au, where she shares recipes that she prepares at home that are tasty and easy to recreate in your own kitchen.

In June 2018, Stephanie launched her first book that she self-published, cooked and styled in her own home. At Home With The Hostess is a collection of recipes inspired both by her travels and home life.
