I am lucky enough to live in Tasmania and have access to all Tasmania’s excellent produce. I am a qualified chef and have been cooking commercially in many restaurants, and now mostly for my young family for 25 years.  I have watched Tasmania’s reputation as a producer of superior produce grow.  I have been lucky enough that other Tasmanian chefs have contributed their own recipes made from their favorite Tasmanian produce on this website too. If you do cook or like one of the recipes please take the time to share the original post from this website, you can find more original recipes in my 5 cookbooks, The Real Food for Kids Cookbook, Seafood Everyday, The Tasmanian Pantry cookbook The Tasmania Pantry 2 cookbook and Packed.
