Hello it's Susie; the jam girl, local baker, farmer & budding horticulturist. Some of you know me from local Farmers Markets. Others perhaps from the bakers oven at Le Petite PantryPalm Beach. For those of you I haven't yet met, here goes ...

I operate a small handmade Preserves business from our registered farm kitchen here at Weka. We use our own organically grown fruit exclusively. I started chopping & bottling jams, jellies, marmalades & relishes in 2004 & haven't stopped since. Selling my beloved Pantry cafe in September 2010, I’ve been re-training my body to sleep instead of bake at 4am.

Most recently I've been studying horticulture, learning how to give our orchard all the love & attention it deserves. I've also been busy with my husband & young family restoring a 100 year old Apple Shed in Tassie's beautiful Huon Valley.

My life before hobby farming, cooking & over-eating was filled with travel & writing. My two big obsessions that make me, well... me. I worked at Qantas & Swiss Airlines for many years and lived in Italy for several more. I shacked up in foodie heaven, otherwise known as La Cucina Italiana, based in Siena, Rome & Sardinia. I took a massive bite of ‘la dolce vita’ everyday. I almost lost my way home but never forgot where I came from.

The air was never sweeter or clearer when I finally returned. I've so many recipes, jam jars and jottings to share with you. I adore cakes that don't require fuss or fancy icing. Ingredients & flowers picked at the back door. A basket full of cumquats turned into shiny rows of marmalade & an overripe hand of bananas into loaves of Coconut Banana bread

At this time of year I’m often found in the orchard, robbing the best fruits for my jam pot & your enjoyment.

Warm regards  Susie x
