This week Chef Phil and I were treated to a tour of the farm where we purchase our zucchini flowers, and when in season, avocados. Crossie's Cados is a business run by Andrew Crossman, located just outside of Torrumbarry, Victoria.
I've been an admirer of Bridget Bodenham's work for a long time. I first saw her pieces at a Finders Keepers market in Melbourne. There was a huge crowd hovering around her stand and for good reason - her handmade pieces are works of art that have gained a cult following.
Australian architect Richard Leplastrier, who has a strong appreciation of the Japanese aesthetic, once said that a house is not at its best when first occupied, but only attains its optimal beauty when it is used with love.
I'm a big believer in the law of attraction. Since I made the decision to pursue a business idea that had been in my head for months, I've continually crossed paths with people doing the same. People that are literally living their dream - growing things, making things, baking things, creating things.
