Penny Melville-Brown is on a mission to show the world how to cook and prove life with a disability “can be fun, fabulous and fulfilling”.
The former UK Naval barrister went blind around 20 years ago but has continued to do all the creative things she loves and is now embarking on a world cooking tour which has stopped in Kiama.
