’where love sets the table, food tastes best…’
There is no better way to demonstrate and share our love than taking the best of uncomplicated ingredients and using our time, attention and care to create honest, nourishing offerings for our families, friends and communities.
My big kitchen table bears the scars of many a gathering of family, friends and workshop participants . This online space is where I share the wonderful memories those gatherings provide. Along the way, I share my recipes and styling tips to help you create special moments of your own.
Made by hand with love, attention to detail and unique flavour combinations making the most of the season's bounty.
My mission is to share the learning of a lifetime in the kitchen and show you that, armed with the
right tips, tricks and confidence, you can become the baker of your dreams…
My style is rustic, perfectly imperfect and delicious.
Life after loss…
I began this blog years ago with lofty ideals of how much I
was going to write and give to the world; the truth is that
none of that happened…
And now, as this crazy year that is 2020 draws to a close, I realise that almost everyone on the planet has suffered loss - of loved ones, jobs, security, futures…and yet, for all that we have lost, we have gained. But most of all, I learned to love, and give freely…through all of the stresses and strains I retreated, as always, to my kitchen; Love Sets the Table was born.
Now I'm proud to call myself a baker, and I have a small bespoke business baking for some very special clients who allow me the creative freedom to explore endless possibilities of flavours and ingredients.
I invite you to travel to our lovely small town less than two hours from Melbourne and join me in my farmhouse cooking school for a day of baking, sharing, connecting and learning…
If you can’t make it to class, you’ll find my teaching on my blog and via my social accounts, whichever you choose, I promise they'll always be cake!
