About the author:

Lesley Christensen-Yule trained in City and Guilds in Scotland before returning to New Zealand to work as a Senior Lecturer in the School of Hotel and Restaurant Studies at the Auckland University of Technology (AUT) for 20 years.

Lesley has extensive industry experience and has written numerous training manuals for use within hospitality education. She is the author of A Cook’s Bible (Penguin, 2007) and The New Zealand Cook’s Bible (Penguin, 2010). Lesley has been the lead author of The New Zealand Chef and The New Zealand Chef Study Guide since the first edition in 2002.

Lesley first taught Food Safety years ago and since 2003 the subject has been a crucial part of the chef training textbook, The New Zealand Chef, now into its 4th edition. Recently Lesley has been involved in teaching Food Safety again and became aware of a need for a better teaching resource as many students find the subject a bit boring and hard to learn. Food Safety hopes to provide a solution to this.
