I was brought up on Flinders island - a “local’. I have deep connections with local families of Flinders Island and can tell you stories going back in time. I’m interested in the study of culture and continue to be an activist. I trained in cooking skills with some of Australia’s well known chefs and have a life time interest in food and wine. Both my sons are discerning cooks too. I have taught in University and schools. For the last twenty years my husband Graeme and I have been running Stockyard Creek, a well known retreat in the Victorian High Country.
