A Table in the Orchard

By Michelle Crawford
In the tradition of life-changing memoirs like Salvation Creek, a food-obsessed former city slicker creates her own slice of heaven in a rambling old country house on the Apple Isle. I dreamed of a rambling old country farmhouse where I could grow my own food, chop wood, bake bread and make jam. I wanted to wear gumboots. Every day a Organising cocktail parties at the Opera House and quaffing French champagne sounds perfectly glamorous, and for a while it was for Michelle Crawford. But after the birth of her daughter, Elsa, the yearning to find her own slice of heaven in the country could no longer be ignored. Instead of watching famous chefs work, Michelle wanted to get in touch with real food and grow her own. She wanted to slow down and give her little girl a country childhood, filled with outdoor adventures, good things to eat and room to grow. Last but not least, she was hungry for a new adventure. An old farmhouse nestled in Tasmania's lush Huon Valley offered the chance to finally make her dream come true - and adventure in spades, from her first disastrous attempts planting a vegie garden to raising a bunch of chickens with attitude, discovering the joys of cooking with a wood stove, learning to forage for edible treasures like sloes to make home-made gin and of course making jam. Warm, funny, inspiring and lushly illustrated with mouth-watering images and recipes that have made Michelle's hugoandelsa blog so popular, A Table in the Orchard is proof of how seductive a little bit of slow living might be. Like Michelle, you might be inspired to make your own crumpets - or move to Tasmania.
