I’ve been connected to vegetables my entire life. Some of my best childhood memories are working on my family’s vegetable farm, eating the freshest watermelons, hiding under cabbage leaves and discovering nature at its best. In Australia we are fortunate to have an abundance of fresh food right at our fingertips and through my career I have the privilege of bringing new vegetable varieties to life – sharing innovations, new traits and flavours with supply chain partners.
For me, appreciating nature and getting the most out of life is linked to my love of salads. Whether I’m travelling, entertaining or working, I find inspiration for creative and delicious meals everywhere. What I love about vegetables is that no matter how many people turn up for a meal, I can make interesting dishes to keep everyone happy. Vegetables give me a creative licence only limited by imagination.
