A sparkling sense of fun, a love of good food and wine, a thirst for getting the most out of life and internationally acclaimed at being at the top of her game – this all sounds like someone who’s never had a care in the world right? Wrong. TV chef and entrepreneur Lyndey Milan is inspirational on many fronts but particularly in the way she handles not just her successes, but also the way she’s dealt with life’s knocks.

For over three decades this cook, author and media personality has become one of our most recognised Australians. Lyndey Milan’s cookbooks have won national and international awards, her TV and radio shows have won her millions of fans and she’s definitely held her own in the male-dominated Australian food, produce and wine industries. Awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) in 2014 for her ‘services to hospitality, particularly to the food and wine industry, and to the community’ you’d think this proud Aussie had never seen any tough times.

In this interview with TV presenter Chris Bath, Lyndey opens up about how she dealt with the the tragic loss of one of her two children – her son Blair Milan, who died at age 29 just two days after being diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia.

Speaking about the challenges, she’s faced in her life she says her personal philosophy is “It’s not what happens to you in life, it’s how you deal with it that’s important”.
