When travelling around Australia it doesn't take long to realise that there are an abundance of expert growers and producers from the Atherton Tablelands to the Swan Valley. The variation of different environments, growing techniques and recipes around the country makes for some very interesting eating, and ensures that no two pavlovas are the same.
Australian Foodie (aka Tanya Hall) reviews Australia's best noms. This includes reviews of restaurants and bars that the locals love, so if you're ever in town you will know just where to go for a taste of the region. I also throw in a quirky recipe , race recap, and crafting instructables here and there.
I'm a writer, photographer and crochet crafter currently located just outside of Brisbane, where I've had a regular radio segment on the Weekends program on 612ABC Brisbane. I've also written for TRAVEL PLAY LIVE Magazine, and Bmag Magazine. It's not just all about the hard facts of sushi either, with my creative writing featuring in Audrey Daybook Magazine, and MiNDFOOD Magazine. My voice has also recently made a comeback, on the Mere Mortals Podcast.
Currently I write an abundance of appreciative stories for local newspaper The Village Pump Samford, because in small towns, print just won't die.
I have been an editor and journalist in the UK and Australia, working on a range of non-food related websites and publications in both countries. I've covered state court reporting in Sydney, technology trade shows in Berlin and I once even reported on a dog show in Northamptonshire, but to be honest not much came out of that one.
I've also strangely taken photos of food from a young age, and am eternally grateful that both blogging and Instagram were invented to finally justify my random photos of pasta.
