My name is Marlene Hoff, Chef, Hospitality Trainer, Passionate Foodie & Advocate for Local, Sustainable & Ethical food & wine. In 2013 my passion to have my own business and spread the word about local, sustainable & ethical food & wine led me to establishing “100 mile foodie”. Our family would sit at the dinner table and be excited about how locally sourced the food was on our plate.


On a hot summers day 100 Mile Foodie came to Mount Martha and ran an amazing Turkish cooking class for a group of 20 of us. With a smile on her face and little printed cook books in hand Janice talked us through and demonstrated the creation of a number of delicious dishes. Everyone in the group got a chance to participate and had a great time in the kitchen. There was so much food and every dish was delightful. I know I walked away with a better understanding of Turkish cuisine with the knowledge and skills to recreate it at home. It was a great day that everyone in the group raved about!


We recently had a gathering of 45 of my husband Jamie's close friends and family to celebrate his 50th birthday. With very short notice gorgeous Marlene from 100 Mile Foodie suggested an amazing menu that catered for all. Using all local Mornington Peninsula produce and Marlene's experience the food was absolutely incredible. All of our guests were constantly commenting on how good each dish was and were blown away by the flavours. Marlene is so professional and organised and her food is so delicious that I can fully recommend her to cater for any function. Thank-you so much Marlene you made Jamie's day such a success!

I have used 100 Mile Foodie's services for 2 events now. On both occasions the food has been amazing, the service outstanding and the styling impressive. What really sets Marlene and 100 Mile Foodie apart is her passion for local produce, which shines through in her food and presentation.

Marlene ran a fantastic Turkish cooking class for us as part of a hen's weekend at a private house in Sorrento. The class was a great mix of demonstrations and hands on activities and Marlene was really flexible to work with us to achieve the feel we wanted for the evening. I can't wait to try some of the recipes at home!



The food at this place is amazing!!! All homemade and full of flavour. Just delicious.
My son is coeliac and the gluten free options were also homemade, fresh and yummy (which is rarely the case). The people are absolutely lovely. I’m not local but it’s worth the travel

100milefoodie is a wonderful business & my client loves going to his social group every weekend. They run some really cool activities in a nice social environment, in which my client has now made some new friends. Every Saturday he can’t wait to go back to see his friends in the group! This is all thanks to the work that Marlene and her amazing support workers do! Keep up the great work!

Marleen and her concept of business is amazing and the quality of food and ingredients send out in the packs is of a very high standard.

It saddens me to write this part of the review, recently my daughter had a chef come to our home and the safety around oil and water was not performed and not to mention teaching my daughter the correct ways of safety in the kitchen, my daughter has an intellectual disability and requires clear messages especially around safety, when approaching this with Marleen via email it was ignored and not addressed to myself via email or phone call, the first email from Marleen was about finding a new chef and asking for more hours of support. She was not happy as i declined a chef to come into my home due to the anxiety myself and my daughter have with at this stage I did provide with the constructive critism and honestly for the next email to be refusal of services going forward. This is extremely unprofessional Marleen and I am extremely disappointed with this outcome as i concerns where no listened to at all.

this support worker/chef has let myself, my daughters and Marleen down by not following the safety aspect of her job, as much as this is Marleen's business i don't not find her accountable as she trusts her staff to do the right thing when in clients home. I just hope Marleen you are able to reflect on your approach to this matter and not treat other family's that are asking for safely in there home and also provide a fair opportunity to voice there concerns.
