AUDREY DAYBOOK

I regularly contribute to Audrey Daybook, an Australian lifestyle magazine filled with inspiring stories of women following their dreams, good food, creative pursuits and fun projects. For its third issue, I interviewed and wrote about the last remaining maestro of sea silk weaving, in Sicily, and a lawyer-turned-cheesemaker who bought an old schoolhouse in the New South Wales hinterland and began growing tea. For its fourth, I penned a piece about the history of red lipstick and another on the rise of bowl foods. In its fifth issue, I interviewed Julia Busuttil Nishumura (author of cookbook 'Ostro') about family and food.

PEPPERMINT MAGAZINE

Breaking Bread: Carter Were is a passionate baker living on a verdent patch of earth in the rural region surrounding Byron Bay. For Peppermint's cover story (see image below), I wrote about this cook's culinary ethos.

Living with less: in Peppermint's 'Living with Less' issue I contributed a four-page spread on a Brisbane-based family dwelling in a 1940s butcher's shop, having transformed it into a tiny cafe, home and office space.

Salt of the earth: in Peppermint's 'Family Issue' I wrote about sustainable sources of rock salt, and why Himalayan sea salt might not be the most eco-friendly choice for Australian consumers.
