New Guest Blog - Hunter Gatherer with Rohan Anderson

Rohan Anderson joins us on the Guest Blog with a week of real rustic country food, grown, gathered, fished or hunted locally.

This week Jenny and I thought we'd better find a suitably MANLY Guest Blogger to join us for MAN WEEK!  Enter Rohan Anderson, Ballarat-based photographer, foodie, family man and passionate hunter / gatherer!  Rohan has a BRILLIANT blog called 'Whole Larder Love', in which he documents his obsession with real, rustic country fare.  He does his very best to cook for his family using produce grown, gathered, fished or hunted in his local area.  Allegedly, he's been called 'Bear Grylls Vs Jamie Oliver' and even 'Food Warrior' by some of his loyal blog readers! (Frankly Bear Grylls drives me crazy so I'm not sure if this is a compliment - but it sure is entertaining!)

This week Rohan has prepared the most AMAZING guest blog full of lip-smacking photographs and foodie inspiration.   We'll learn about Rohan's move from Melbourne to the country with partner Kim, his tips for growing veg for a family of four, and he'll also share some stories about fishing, catching fresh yabbies in the river and bottling his own home made chutneys and sauces!  Do pop by the Guest Blog each day to see what's cooking - it's sure to be an appetite-inducing week!

PowerHouse Books in Brooklyn NYC have commissioned a book from Rohan, based on his blog, which will come out next year.   It's a little way off but I'll be sure to keep you in the loop when it hits Australian shores!  Who would have thought it would take an NYC-based company to publish a Ballarat-based photographer / blogger / foodie?!  Amazing.  Love your work Rohan!
