Who am I and why should you read my blog?

That's me at my favourite place in the whole world, aka the farmers market

That's me at my favourite place in the whole world, aka the farmers market

My name is Lucy.

I'm a chef.

I'm a whole bunch of other things too, but it's the chef thing that has brought me here to this blog. I'm looking for a platform to chat about all things vegetable, travel, and more and I hope you'll find all these things interesting. I've been working in Canberra kitchens for several years now, mostly on the crack-of-dawn, smashed-avocado, goddamn-hipsters-with-their-brunches-don't-they-have-real-jobs kind of shifts. During this time I've developed valuable relationships with local producers, organic farmers, and home gardeners.

Every year or so I like to uproot myself and travel overseas for weeks or months at a time. The world is a big place, and I want to see (and taste!) everything. My travels have proved to be an amazing source of inspiration in my cooking, and it's a privilege to have had many experiences that have changed the way I cook and eat. 

My hope is that through these pieces of writing I can share my experiences with you, and maybe convince everyone to eat more vegetables.
