Kate Reid Had Anorexia. Then She Opened A World Famous Bakery

View descriptionShare

Listen to the second half of Mia and Kate's conversation here. 

Kate Reid has lived three very different lives.

The first, as an engineer who worked at the most elite level of Formula 1 car racing. The second as a young woman consumed by anorexia to the point where she nearly died. And the third as the owner of a croissanterie called Lune, where she now makes some of the best croissants in the world. 

On this episode of No Filter, Kate Reid shares with Mia Freedman how the lowest moments in her life led her directly to where she is now...

If you or a loved one is dealing with anorexia, please get in touch with The Butterfly Foundation on 1800 33 4673. 


With thanks to Kate Reid
