Food Luddite – Passionate advocate for the oldways of food preparation
Welcome, living in South Australia’s beautiful Barossa Valley, food and wine are central to my world.
For the past 40 years I am lucky enough for it also to have been my profession and this has allowed me to travel, gain insights into cultures and encouraged me to read and research, seeking answers to the endless what, why, when and hows that food and wine continue to pose.
This fascination is multi layered, its about how it grows, the history and geography that have shaped cuisines and cultures, the people that make it, its literature and the art it has generated, its taboos and curious customs and of course its future.
In fact my interest in all things culinary probably borders on an obsession, when I am not cooking at work you will invariably find me in the kitchen at home, using my hands to prepare delicious, honest food, following time honored traditions to be shared with like minded people, family and friends.
