Writer, reviewer and cooking enthusiast with a background in food, events management and communications, Liz Posmyk has recently launched a web site focusing on ‘Good Things’.
Promotions and Marketing Manager of the Belconnen Fresh Food Markets and co-owner of Canberra’s leading cooking school and cookware specialist, Cooking Coordinates (1997-2006), Liz managed a hugely successful program of events that welcomed leading chefs and cookery writers to Canberra (including Rick Stein, Margaret Fulton, Gabriel Gate, Ian Parmenter, Elizabeth Chong, Charmaine Solomon, Janelle Bloom, Maggie Beer and Stephanie Alexander, among others).
Liz has featured weekly on the Afternoon Program on ABC Radio 666 with James Valentine and Rod Quinn; and published articles and reviews in various newspapers and journals, including The Chronicle (under a weekly column across a decade).
Liz is passionate about food and cooking and loves the raw vibrancy of fresh produce markets. Her web site features recipes, reviews and food related events and news. Liz’s focus is on fresh, seasonal produce, farmer’s markets and market people.
‘I love the versatility of asparagus. It can be steamed and served as a simple supper with soft-boiled eggs, ham and a light sprinkle of sea salt; or grilled on the barbecue and served with only fresh lemon juice and cracked pepper. My favourite springtime salad is one created by Anton Shaw, head chef of Belluci’s, Dickson. This salad is made using the freshest asparagus, oak leaf lettuce, snow pea sprouts, roasted red capsicum, smoked chicken breast, a punnet of strawberries and a sweet raspberry vinegar dressing’.
