Charlotte also works closely with many food businesses in creating and implementing new menus, recipe development and assisting with the process of producing food.

More recently she has opened Kitchen&Pantry in Carlton, serving gourmet takeaway meals, locally produced retail goods and free-range deli items. The seasonal meals produced cater for a wide range of dietary conditions however Charlotte strongly advocates the non-diet approach and the store has become a centre where reliable dietary, cooking and food information can be obtained without associating with fad diets or judgement around food choices.
