Welcome to ‘Gather and Graze’ – I’m Margot. Australian born, however I’ve been lucky enough to also live in 3 other countries around the world (France, New Zealand and the USA). In a bittersweet way, a little piece of my heart has been left behind in each of these wonderful places. For the moment, home is here in Canberra, Australia.
I’m married and the mother of two gorgeous kids. For me… one of life’s absolute pleasures is to sit down at a table and share a plate of simply prepared food with those that I love. With the sharing of food comes conversation, laughter and a sense of truly connecting at a leisurely pace.
The world is an amazing place and I’m always so excited to learn something new about how other people (both past and present) prepare and eat food. In many countries around the world, we’re losing the knowledge and ability to cook fresh, delicious food from scratch. Recipes and techniques are no longer being passed on from generation to generation – something I find so incredibly sad! Hoping that it’s not too late, I’m determined to play my part in trying to inspire others to do away with much of the rubbish on offer and find a better way of nourishing our bodies.
Come join me on my journey to try to encourage others to slow down a little, eat better and enjoy life!
