From French cuisine to contemporary Australian, Dale's experience is varied but she is most passionate about bush tucker. Dale now has expanded her business to a boutique and unique gourmet food range of jam, relish sauces, confectionery manufactured and distributed through her company, First Food Co, who are bush food specialists.
