A rollicking trip through 9 restaurants and the Chefs, thieves and rogues she duelled with daily… Buckle up, it’s a rough ride. “Laugh out loud! A terrific read!” 

WHY OFF THE HOTPLATE? 

"I had 10 successful restaurants as owner/chef and 25 years in blasting hot kitchens. Burn out became a boomerang and I fell out of love with cooking, and the industry. 

Then I started seeing the suicide rate, the burn out rate, the collateral damage of high pressure on families and society as a whole and decided we needed a solution. Mental health and emotional intelligence need more than just talk lines or questions with no answers. People need real solutions - teaching people those emotional management skills that are tragically missing in everyone's education. 

Off the Hotplate was born, and I was reborn with a drive to bring this to an industry and people who deserve better. And working in other industries since, I saw they could all benefit from this. After all, it's about people. Simple." ~ Christine Matheson Green - for more on Christine on Linked In click here:

Sometimes stress sneaks up on us. But there are ways of dealing with it.

This is an interesting point of view I found in my studies: the cause of all of your problems is the same as the cause of all of my problems and everyone else’s problems.    ‘Rubbish’ you say, but think about it. Look at it from a broader perspective than you’re used to. The person…

What is frustration and what can I do about it?

Who is that person that takes over your mind and body when your buttons have been pressed and you feel completely frustrated? You know what I’m talking about. That if you had a mirror in front of you when you were speaking (or ranting) , in one of those frustrated moments, you wouldn’t recognise yourself!…
