About Us

Island Menu is a food and photography blog written by two friends with a strong focus on the use of wonderful fresh Tasmanian produce available. We aim to buy and source seasonally and locally where we can for both special occasion meals and everyday food.

With Island Menu we hope to share recipes that are simple yet full of flavor and present them in our photographs in a way that is both sincere and honest.

We don’t claim to be the greatest cooks in the world – far from it – we just love creating new recipes and taking photos.
