I’m lucky enough to spend every day cooking in a very special area, famous for natural beauty, historical landmarks, interesting and inventive locals and some of the best produce you can find. So why not join me here in regional Gippsland for a while? Whether you live like a local for a time at one of the cosy bed and breakfast cottages or enjoy the convenience of a centrally located hotel there is so much to see and take in.
