About the Author

Best-selling author Liz Harfull is passionate about telling the stories and unearthing the histories of the extraordinary everyday people who make up our communities, especially in rural and regional Australia. An award-winning journalist and rural communicator, she grew up on a farm near Mount Gambier which has been in her family since the 1860s.

Liz walked away from a successful career in public relations to become an author. Since then, she has written two international award-winning books about Australian home cooks and show cooking traditions - The Australian Blue Ribbon Cookbook and Tried, Tested and True - and two books capturing the life stories of rural women, including national bestseller Women of the Land, and City Girl, Country Girl, which was inspired by her mother.

Liz became aware of the CWA as a young reporter, assigned to cover meetings and competitions in her local community. In Tried, Tested and True, she championed their treasured cookbooks and uncovered the stories of the women who created them, giving her a taste for the fascinating history of this iconic organisation.

Today Liz lives in the Adelaide Hills, occasionally finding time to bake scones and make jam, while juggling a busy writing career and volunteer work as a community historian.
