Much loved celebrity chef, entrepreneur and best-selling author

Eat food from the ground, the sea and the sky.

‘Nude Food’ advocate Nadia Lim is all about everyday simple, healthy, delicious food.

As a budding young cook, (who’s idol was Jamie Oliver), when she was just 12 years old she came up with the idea of ‘Nude Food’, and it has been her mantra ever since. She wasn’t referring to cooking or eating in the nude, in case that’s what you were thinking! Rather, Nude Food signifies fresh, natural, real food, which is free from being dressed up in fancy packages, marketing and additives, a message she conveys to her audiences with her fresh, bright and tasty recipes.

It’s been an exciting ride for the former MasterChef New Zealand winner.

Current work
These days, Nadia and her husband, Carlos, run the historic Royalburn Station in Arrowtown. Their vision is to lead the way in regenerative and ethical farming by creating more sustainable and circular solutions to help the land, animals and food sources thrive.

She has ten best-selling cookbooks, is one of the founders of My Food Bag, a genius recipe and meal kit delivery service, hosted and produced the highly acclaimed TV series "Nadia's Comfort Kitchen", and in 2022 was announced as the MasterChef NZ Judge and of course is the proud mum of two sons Bodhi and River!

She is also an ambassador of the Cambodia Charitable Trust and made the semi-finals with dance partner Aaron Gilmore in the 2019 series of Dancing with the Stars NZ supporting the Garden to Table charity.

Nadia was friendly, people felt comfortable talking to her and asking her questions. We would use Nadia again. She definitely helped our event draw more of a crowd. Very happy we chose to use Nadia. Construction Marketing Services

Nadia was a fantastic presenter. She was professional yet engaging. She shared real stories and made a personal bond with the audience as well as giving us some really useful ideas to think about. The book signing at the end made the end of the first day of the conference end with a real high!

HR Advisors Conference

Nadia Lim was the perfect opening speaker for our conference. Delegates found her story and presentation inspirational. We were all surprised that she had a direct link to our sector having been a swimmer in her younger years. It was great to hear Nadia’s story of how she has got to where she is today with My Food Bag being so successful. I know that the delegates took away Nadia’s tips and tricks on how to be successful.

NZ Recreation Association

Nadia was an absolute gem! She was very engaging, informative and supper funny! If we could summarise her talk in one word.... Awesome!

Health 2000

The evening was a huge success and everyone has raved about Nadia. She is so down to earth and exudes such a positive energy. She kept everyone in the room engaged and was so knowledgeable. The practical food and wellbeing tips she provided were incredibly well received and we have had such positive feedback from the attendees as a result.

Cavell Leitch

Nadia is one of the most down to earth speakers I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Super easy and chill, more than willing to adapt to the audience, event style and requests asked of her. Her interview style presentation with one of our MCs was fantastic, raw and real.
