Welcome to Rosehips and Rhubarb

My name is Kate and I live in Adelaide, South Australia, although I’m originally from Sydney and spent many years in Melbourne in between.

Wherever I live I grow food, whether a few herbs in a pot or a mini orchard of fruit trees. My family tolerates my eccentricity and happily devours the (literal) fruits of my labours.

I love weird heirloom vegetables and determined chooks who shimmy, commando-style, under the wire that is supposed to contain them. I love gathering herbs at dusk and planning dessert around whichever fruit tree is producing.

At Rosehips and Rhubarb you’ll find recipes inspired by my garden, my family, my studies in food history and my vintage cookbook collection. Gardening tips and hints will mingle with stories about other kitchen gardeners, book reviews and my thoughts on ethical eating and sustainability.

Thank you for visiting. I hope you come back again soon.

    I love your girls, they are so similar to mine. We also have the chicken shimmy dance. Look forward to visiting and following your progress.
