For as long as I can remember, I've always had a love affair with food. From whipping up cupcakes to spending hours inside Wheel and Barrow lusting over kitchen supplies, food has always been a huge passion. As a writer, I'm most inspired by the local food producers, the artisans, the twenty something whose passion for baking cupcakes led her to open up a successful bakery, the guy down the road who launched his own range of jams because he couldn't find a good quality one at the supermarket, or the Italian brothers who opened up a gelato place using their Nonna's recipe. Every week, I will be showcasing these local food entrepreneurs work, telling their stories and uncovering Brisbane's hidden creative community.
