About me: I’m a Brit, living in Australia, would be locavore, avid preserver and occasionally successful grower of backyard veggies. I try to be organic but hell, everyone needs a tim tam every now and then.
After years of paying outlandish rents, we decided it was time to up sticks, leave our beloved Sydney & move to the sticks: the much more affordable, beautiful Central Coast.
Buying our food locally, as much as possible from local farmers, supporting local businesses, I believe encourages artisan foodies and crafties to sell their wares – and that’s what’s really needed in this much maligned corner of NSW.
Having a garden is a new adventure – I want to grow as many fruits and veggies as I can in our small urban space. But this isn’t just a foodie blog, it’s a life blog. It’s about sustainability, being eco and healthy, walking the gorgeous National Parks of the Coast, travelling this wonderful land (and drinking the wines!), and showing everyone back home how beautiful this area of the world really is.
So these will be my tales of Living, eating and growing In The Sticks – stick around!
Oh; and the name? I’m a left handed chopsticks wielder, always have been.
