Hello! Please note that from March 2015 my website has changed to www.thewholeheartedcook.com I look forward to seeing you at my sparkly new site!
Since making it to the finals of Masterchef 3 in 2011 and as a contestant on Masterchef All Stars in 2012 I have been on an incredible journey (as they like to say on MasterChef!).
In 2014 I became the host of Weekend Feast, a new cooking show on Channel Ten where I share with viewers my love of cooking through presenting some of my favourite recipes along with some Australia’s leading chefs and food personalities. You can catch up on Weekend Feast on Ten Play.
I have hosted/MC’d amazing live events including the Masterchef Live Contestants Theatre in 2012 and worked with the team at Intrepid Travel as a presenter at The Good Food and Wine Show’s across the country as well as the Taste of Melbourne in 2013.
I also have the pleasure of working with some well known Australian corporate companies including Coles Supermarket and Bunnings Warehouse in numerous ways such as recipe development (Check out my recipes I’ve created for Coles here), gourmet cooking demonstrations and staff team building activities. I also present online cooking videos for Coles, you can view them on YouTube here.
I also continue to develop as a radio presenter and have worked with Nova 100 FM as co-host of the Tommy Little & Dani Venn summer breakfast show. (Have a laugh and listen to some podcasts here: 11 Dec 2012, 17 Dec 2012, 8 Jan 2013, 3 April 2013)
Allow me to bring the “Dani Venn” experience to your next corporate event whether it be for
- Cooking Demonstrations
- MC / Hosting / Presentations
- Recipe development
- Special guest appearances
- Video presentations
I will work with you to create an event that no one will forget!

Here are some nice things people have said about my work ( I’m blushing! )
Intrepid Travel has been working with Dani for a year now and it has been an absolute joy to work collaboratively with her to promote our new Food Adventures. Dani’s warm personality, natural charm and likeability shines through and it has helped Intrepid gain fantastic awareness and publicity at events & exhibitions. Dani’s love of food & travel has made the relationship a great success and when she presents for us she has the audience in the palm of her hands and enjoying every detail about her travels with Intrepid and the enticing food that she ate, which has helped us achieve enquiries and sales … Thanks Dani for all your great work, we can’t wait to travel and work with you more in 2014.
Joe Old, Marketing Manager, Intrepid Travel

Working alongside Dani Venn at the Horsham Agricultural Show was an absolute pleasure! In preparing for her visit, communication with Dani and her agent was clear, timely, professional but best of all friendly! In what was to become a shearing shed, Dani worked in a humble environment without most up-to-date equipment, which didn’t faze her. Dani’s relaxed and easygoing nature was also embraced by the audience who welcomed the opportunity to interact with her during and after her cooking demonstrations. Dani was a delight to have at the Horsham Show and as our key promotional figure her presence undoubtedly increased our attendance numbers. We would welcome Dani back with open arms and recommend her presentations for any event!

I work for a Marketing & Advertising agency in Melbourne and recently enlisted Dani as the ‘talent’ for my clients Christmas Cooking campaign. It was a pleasure to work with Dani, she was enthusiastic and energetic in her role and really played a major part in the overall success of our campaign. She was professional at all times and was excellent in engaging the audience and working the crowd. Both the client and our customers loved having her on board and we will definitely call on her again when we run another campaign of this nature. Thanks Dani”

MasterChef audience favourite Dani Venn made a big splash on our screens.
The MasterChef judges were impressed with her knowledge of Asian flavours, skill in the kitchen and her enthusiastic and relentless energy.
Dani always wore her heart on her plate and was always happy, whether laughing or crying.
“Dani has such an infectious personality. Her laugh lit up the MasterChef kitchen”- Matt Preston
Dani stays in touch with fans and foodlovers through her food blog www.danivenn.com, she is a regular on Nova 100’s Hughesy and Kate breakfast show in Melbourne and is also a Starlight Foundation ‘Serving Up Smiles’ Ambassador.
She also has a book in development that expresses her unique style.
Dani’s love of food and cooking came from watching her Mum work the wok to create delicious meals for the family. Chinese food has influenced Dani’s style, as her ancestors were some of the first Chinese settlers to come to Australia.
After she finished high school, Dani spent seven months voluntarily teaching English in Vietnam. She discovered street food, ate as much as she possibly could, and experienced an amazing and intriguing way of living.
Combine that passion with her sense of adventure and travel, and Dani is definitely making her dreams a reality.
Keep an eye on Dani and see where she pops up next on radio and television!
