Q: What was the first sweet you baked?

A: Fairy cakes. I was 8 years old and won first prize in the Country Women’s Association at Albany Fair in western Australia, where I lived -- in the adult division! I should have been in the children’s, and I was beside myself because I took first ribbon.

Q: Where did you grow up?

A: I was a daughter of a farmer, and sheepshearing was my business, and farm work, and I learned at an early age I needed to get busy and help. I actually lived on a station in the north; I did my first school on pedal radio. (Inventor) Alfred Traeger ... set it up. No person, no matter how isolated they were, could be left behind. My parents, when out there, were on party line, and when I did my schooling, there was a pedal machine where you generate your own electricity and talk to a teacher. And each of us had our turn with listening and offering and sharing the details, and parents marked your homework.

Q: Who taught you to bake?

A: I am fortunate because I grew up with a wood fire oven, and my mother taught me to shove my hand in the oven and get a feel for how warm it is. I don’t even believe the calibrated oven because it is never calibrated. Shove your hand in, and feel this, and close your eyes, and that’s the temperature you need for a sponge (cake) and the rest of the baking.
