Beginning her cooking career, by
accident, over 30 years ago in Bermagui, a small fishing village on the
south coast of NSW, Georgina set up and ran Le Marlin Café and Le Wharf
Café, both icons in the town.
For twelve years she extended
her skills, cooking privately in a Tuscan style villa, feeding
distinguished guests, many from overseas, catering for receptions,
weddings and a stream of other functions. During this time she
travelled extensively and spent much time in northern Tuscany, where she
now conducts her small group tours.
She then set up her own ‘Cucina’,
a private dining room and commercial kitchen overlooking the oyster
farms at Wapengo Lake. Here she fed many a happy visitor and also
established her cooking school.
She is a great exponent of using fresh local
produce wherever she cooks and maintains a keen interest in ‘everything
food’, particularly current food issues in society and food literature.
