Passion for Cooking

  • Kathy Barlow's kitchen in Wanalta is a hive of activity 12 months of the year, the busy mother of four started out by donating chutneys and jams to the local schools stalls
  • With a registered kitchen and Kathy's love for cooking this inspired her to start selling
  • Kathy sources her ingredients by what's in season. She may have a basket of lemons delivered, or may harvest her crops from the farm creating small batches according to what's in season
  • Having free range chooks makes all the difference; with fresh ingredients Kathy makes deliciously fresh produce
  • Lemon butter, lemon cordial, Quince Jelly, Chutneys and Pickles are just some of the delights that come out of Kathy's kitchen
