& lime marinade from Margaret's former company, Lacewood
Margaret lives in Australia, and
is helping us increase our awareness of food 'down under,' and open
our horizons to Australian cooking. Now retired and exercising her pen,
she has been in the food business as a manufacturer, and tells us that
"I have had three loves all my life, reading (a gift from my father)
creating food (from my mother and grandmother) and writing (from my
fairy godmother). My love of cooking and catering comes from being part
of a large family, and taking pleasure in seeing that people enjoy the
food I create."
Margaret is our guide to a basic
understanding of Australian cooking, from its British Isles beginnings
to the influence of its immigrant population and its global sophistication
today. She is also a world traveler whose experiences abroad become lively travel articles.
Today she divides her time. She'll
settle into the kitchen to make another batch of preserves, but from
time to time she'll take off to see the world, knowing that there are
good things to eat when she returns home.
Lots of recipes accompany the articles. We hope you will enjoy reading in both categories of food and travel.
And if you have questions you'd like Margaret is happy to answer.
