I grew up in a big family, feeling incredibly hard done by that my friends didn’t have to spend their Saturday mornings digging the family vegetable garden and their summer (and winter, and autumn, and spring) evenings peeling, chopping, stoning and slicing everything from peaches to onions to cauliflower to support Mum’s preserving mania.

We munched year-round on fruit from local orchards, ate grass-fed everything and spent summers foraging and fishing. It was only when I moved to the big city in my late teens, discovered the buzz of restaurant life and apprenticed to some inspiring chefs that I began to embrace my heritage and to explore the community-building and creativity-enhancing affordances of cooking.

My greatest pleasure these days is cooking with and for family and friends, making the most of the constraints and opportunities of everyday life and celebrating the flavours of foods available to us all.
