About Us: History + People
Janel Horton - Mastermind + Masterchef Behind Dietlicious
Janel started cooking when her Dad built her an oven with red painted stove rings when she was 4 years old. Then, as a teenager, she hijacked her mother’s kitchen and started making homemade Rum Baba’s (classic French dessert cake) which she sold to Sydney’s leading restaurants.
When she moved into the cut throat world of finance her diet was a complete disaster, with no time to plan, shop or cook. Ending up at home late with what she called the invisible meal, an empty plate, had to stop.
So, in 1994 Janel traded the suit and stilettos for an apron and started Gourmet Dinner Service. Since then she’s cooked more than three million meals, been included in Business Review Weekly’s annual list of best female entrepreneurs and expanded her operations across Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Canberra.
