OUR CHEFS

CHRISTIE CONNELLY

Christie publishes the popular Australian food blog Fig & Cherry featuring healthy, family-friendly meals and sweet treats with mouth-watering photography to match. Christie lives with her husband and two young children on the Far North Coast of NSW, enjoying the beach, local produce and a relaxed country lifestyle.

She draws recipe inspiration from her Hungarian and Lebanese heritages, her travel adventures and, of course, the amazing fertile soil of the Northern Rivers with its abundance of local organic fruits, vegetables, delicious native produce and healthy free-range-reared animals.

Her passion is educating parents, grandparents and carers how to shop for, prepare and cook healthy, nutritious food and to encourage children to enjoy it as well.
