Chef at du Fermier
What do you love about where you live?
It's hard to describe why I love Malmsbury. Something about its old grey bluestone bones, its quietness, its creativity and its community. It is a small village that whilst connected to the broader community, is also quietly apart. It's impossible to escape history in Malmsbury, with its monumental works in bluestone and infrastructure from past centuries. A tiny little time piece town that lives and breathes in the modern world.
What is your favourite secret location in the region? (Which you may or may not want to share!)
My favourite secret location of the region is the walk from the Malmsbury viaduct through to the reservoir. There are so many perfect little detours and sitting spots. Followed close second by my old stomping ground, Jubilee Lake in Daylesford.
If you could paint a picture of any scenery in the region, what would you paint?
If I could paint, I think it would be the line of cypresses on the hill coming into Musk.
What is the best part of waking up in the region?
The best part of waking up in the region is that it's home. Quiet, beautiful home in my lovely garden.
What is your favourite time of year in the region and why?
It's a hard choice between spring and autumn. For me, the spring is perfect in my garden, but the region is so magnificent in autumn. But then there is deep, dark winter as well...
