My Biggest Influence

I grew up in a household where food was always important, but like so many of that era, we ate simply and to a budget, unless the occasion was a very special one. As I grew up and eventually moved away, travelling and working in different parts of the world, my food influences opened up in parallel to my experiences. I have always been influenced by the wonderful people I have had the opportunity to meet throughout my life, but the most impactful influence has been living in the Barossa, there is nothing that compares to growing and harvesting your own food when it comes to expanding food knowledge. -MB Read the rest...

With its history of early settlement by immigrants that brought their food with them and adapted it to the climate, we have a food culture today that is still firmly rooted in these original Silesian ideals and principals.

That is the Barossa way of life to me; being inspired by and utilising what is at hand. And we have plenty to choose from here! -MB Read the rest...

Eating Integrity

Creating meals with integrity is important for so many reasons - to connect with growing food on a deeper level, to nourish myself, to share occasions that will become special memories for me and my family and friends, for my passion in sharing a good food life, and for what has become my business on a day to day basis.
