Christine’s brilliant memoir Theatre of War is available now!

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:
