About the author

Phillippa Grogan

Phillippa Grogan developed a natural affinity for baking at her mother's side, and has turned this into a career, with her breads, cakes and provisions being widely enjoyed around Australia. Born in Wellington, New Zealand, Phillippa completed her Bachelor of Arts at Melbourne University before going on to live and work in France and Britain, cooking under the doyenne of simple seasonal food, Sally Clarke. In 1994 Phillippa opened the doors of a bakery and provisions store in Armadale, Melbourne, focusing on traditional breads and pastries. Twenty years on, Phillippa has opened another two stores around Melbourne, and sells her goods nationally. She was a founding member of the Specialist Cheese Makers' Association, and is a judge for various food industry awards. She has appeared on several television programs, including MasterChef Australia. Phillippa lives in Melbourne with her husband and fellow baker Andrew O'Hara and their three children, all of whom enjoy baking together on weekends.
