Odette Williams is an Australian cook and writer. In 2006, Odette packed up her life on Bondi Beach to move to New York for love, after meeting her now husband Nick, in a Sydney bookstore. She pressed pause on her acting career, and had two children, Opal and Ned. Cooking often with her kids, she realized that she couldn’t find a keepsake apron set for them, so she designed one and then launched her eponymous brand that worked with leading brands like goop, Anthropologie, and Le Bon Marche.

Odette then wrote her first cookbook, Simple Cake, that was named one of the Best Cookbooks of 2019 by the New York Times and was an Amazon Bestseller. She then followed it up with another New York Times Best Cookbooks, Simple Pasta. Odette has contributed to major national magazines and appeared on the Food Network.
