Sally Wise is the bestselling author of several books, including A Year in a Bottle and Slow Cooker.

She is a regular guest on ABC Local Radio in Tasmania for a Jams and Preserves talkback segment.  She has been a presenter at events such as Melbourne Food and Wine festival, Gardening Australia Expos, Open Gardens Australia and many community functions.

Sally loves to share the cooking experience and has taught children and adults of all ages. She offers a delicious range of courses at her cooking school near Molesworth in the Derwent Valley, Tasmania. If you’re interested in joining Sally in one of her popular classes, find out more here.

She is passionate about seasonal produce and creating exciting flavours in additive-free food from natural, readily available ingredients.

During her classes you can, for example, sample drinks of a bygone era – sparkling elderflower or exquisite fruit cordials made from the exceptional fruits grown in the region or Sally’s garden, or even foraged from trees along country lanes.

The foods made in the classes can easily be replicated at home, making a day at the school a truly beneficial experience.
