Founder & Mentor
Raised on an Irish fruit farm (http://mrjeffaresblackcurrants.ie/), Fiona has always appreciated the importance & joy of eating good food. Trained in the UK, she was lured to this magnificent State by a wonderful Tasmanian man over 20 years ago. She was fortunate to extend her professional practice at the Royal Hobart Hospital with rotations through all clinical areas & food service until landing her dream job in paediatric care.
