About Kim

Kim Terakes has run a cooking school since 2004. He has run 'Boys Can Cook' for 12 years and as 'We Can Cook' since 2015.

Kim has had five cookbooks published by Penguin, including the best-selling ‘The Great Aussie Barbie Cookbook’ and ‘The Great Aussie Bloke’s Cookbook’. 

Kim began writing about food for Gourmet Traveller in the late 1980’s and wrote for Vogue Entertaining, Sydney Morning Herald, Sun-Herald, GQ, Sunday Life, BRW and the Daily Telegraph. He co-wrote the Sun-Herald’s wine column with Peter Bourne in the mid-90s and contributed to nine SMH Good Food Guides. He has made many TV appearances, with a weekly segment on Nine’s Fresh, on A Current Affair, Today Tonight and Sydney Weekender and was a regular on Radio 702 and currently has a fortnightly segment on 2UE.

After a career in the advertising industry, these days his whole world is all about food. Kim consults to food companies both large and small as well as restaurants, sells regular food trends presentations to major media and food businesses, writes recipes and produces video and stills, does PR with Brooke Tabberer for food, wine and travel clients and conducts corporate cooking classes and sports/food/wine tours.

Kim and a wonderful team of production professionals generously donated their time and expertise to produce an exclusive series of BarbeCURE recipe videos which can be viewed with his recipes on the healthy recipes page.  

We would like to thank Kim Terakes, Whitney Hawthorn, Brad Goosen, Joe Kiely, Matthew Sharp, Barbeques Galore, Simon Johnson, Scanpan, Global Knives,  and all those who have generously donated goods and services.
