Our Story

After years working as a Company Director in the Finance industry, starting a family and moving half way around the world, Jodie Blight discovered her passion.

During time spent in The Netherlands raising her family, the concept of Summer Table was born. Living in a small village with no family support, no takeaway food shops, the supermarket closing at 5 pm on weekdays and no Sunday shopping, Jodie was forced to creatively plan and prepare her family meals.  And so began a new love for food.  She always loved to eat it but realised just how much she enjoyed creating it!

After returning to Melbourne and with the support of her family and friends, Jodie was encouraged to take her growing pile of recipes and put them into a book, fulfilling her ambition to share her love of food and address the dilemma we are all familiar with – what to cook for dinner.  The result is Summer TABLE.

Summer TABLE is no ordinary, run of the mill cookbook. In a world first, Jodie developed an APP which creates a shopping list from the cookbook. Scan a recipe (or a number of recipes) in Summer TABLE and it automatically creates a shopping list on your phone with all the items sorted by supermarket section. Too easy!

Jodie Blight lives in Melbourne with her husband and two young boys and is already working on the winter cookbook. Guess what it is called?
