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.

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.

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.
