My two pantry apothecary essentials for winter are honey fermented garlic and elderberry syrup. Garlic gets to work on microbial (including bacterial) infections while elderberry works against the cold and flu virus.
I want to share with you all the things I am passionate about – kitchen herbalism, wholefood, gardening, locavore adventures, and enjoying life on our small farm in Southern Tasmania.
For me, it is where I prepare our meals, preserve, ferment and concoct lotions and potions from farmed, foraged and grown ingredients.
The birth of my second child has prompted me to take a break after nearly 20 years as a naturopath in private practice. With The Kitchen Apothecary, I finally have time to collate and share the wonderful and totally achievable ways you can use herbs, spice and the produce from your veggie garden or farmer’s market to enhance your wellbeing.
I have also run cooking schools in Sydney and Mudgee. In 2018, I held my first workshops in Southern Tasmania. I look forward to bringing you more in 2020.
Enjoy your journey here at The Kitchen Apothecary. There will be plenty of diversions along the way as I have a meandering mind!
