Food award judging and organising

I love food, I love new products and can appreciate the efforts involved in the production! I am the current Chief Judge and committee member of the Hobart Fine Food awards. I lead up to 50 judges over the 4 day event judging 1300 products. I encourage all producers to enter to gain valuable feedback on their products. I will be recruiting new judges for the 2019 awards and stewards. Judges need to be qualified chefs or industry experts, anyone can train to be a judge starting out stewarding, Stewarding is a fun job! Please send me a email of your interest in volunteering at the 2019 awards and being involved in this exciting awards, it is Hobart so we must be dealing with the best produce in the world!!
I am also available for judging of other food awards large or small. I was involved in the first Koonya Garlic festival and judged the garlic at the first festival including creating the judging criteria. I have helped the Bream Creek Show Society modernise the cooking at hall of industries, by creating some categories that are popular for home cooks now, create the judging criteria so new entrants had a idea how the fabulous CWA judges judge, and help on the day with the stewarding.

I would love to hear from you, please contact me for any questions, enquires, quotations or bookings.     or 0416220505



Cookbook production and food photography

I photograph and style recipes and products for cookbooks, print, advertising and websites.

Please contact me for a quotation to manage the production your cookbook, although at first a seeming expensive project, if you can sell the books through your business there is a good profit to be made and brilliant long-term advertising!

As a qualified chef who is passionate about produce and a qualified photographer, I probably couldn’t find a job I would love to do more than collect a stack of delicious local produce to cook and style in beautiful accomodation.

Phone Photography and Food styling workshop August 2018

Another fun day on Sunday styling and photographing food at home with a interesting group of food lovers!

I always incorporate my attendees products in the props so that they can stock pile photographs of their own products. It is also great to get some new products to try, promotion for the business and something new and interesting for us to taste and photograph. Spring Bay Mussels, Campo de flori- saffron, tea, lavender and pottery! Knives by Organic blades and I tried out some tricky Thermomix techniques for the thermomix consultant in attendance. We had some delicious aged beef from the Old Cow Co and some vegan cheese and butter from Lauds plant based products.

This was the last Phone Photography and Food styling workshop that I was planning for 2018 as I am finding it difficult to find the time available to host the workshops I might be able to squeeze in  a weekday workshop in November, please message me your interest. Spots available for Seafood Cooking and Game cooking next month.
