Charmaine Solomon's Story

Born in Sri Lanka (Solomon moved to Australia with her husband and children in 1959), Charmaine Solomon, OAM, is recognised as one of Australia’s most accomplished writers on Asian food. Solomon worked at the Australian Woman’s Weekly for 12 years, including three as food editor, and was cookery editor of Belle magazine. She was a regular columnist for The Sun Herald and The Sydney Morning Herald and was the food editor of Family Circle magazine for three years. The author of 31 cookbooks and the creator of her own brand of spice blends and marinades, Solomon has been called "the queen of Asian cooking in Australia" and part of "the holy trinity of cookbook authors" by The Sydney Morning Herald. She is named in Who's Who in Australia and is widely credited with introducing Asian food to Australian households. The Complete Asian Cookbook, first published in 1976, has sold over one million copies in five languages and is regarded as one of Australia's most influential cookbooks. A beautiful updated edition was again published in 2012.
