“Karen from Wil­low­brae is, in my opin­ion, a true goat's hand­made cheese ar­ti­san. process her pro­vides a flavour rem­i­nis­cent of what our grand­par­ents would have eaten” - martin boetz

For the food­ies out there, the name Martin Boetz might ring a bell – the chef amassed a cult fol­low­ing dur­ing his 13-year stint at the Lon­grain restau­rants. Since then, Marty has es­caped the bus­tle of the big smoke and taken on a new ad­ven­ture. In 2012, he stum­bled across a prop­erty in the Hawkesbury Val­ley in NSW and moved swiftly to snap it up. Set against a can­vas of blue-grey gums, the farm boasts breath­tak­ing river views and, as Marty quips, “gives good shed”. With pro­duc­ers of all kinds ap­pear­ing in every cor­ner of the re­gion, it wasn’t long into his tree-change that Marty thought to com­bine his new plot with his pas­sion for food. And so, Cooks Co-op was born! In an orig­i­nal web se­ries, in­tro­duced by lo­cal pro­ducer Gerry Har­vey and pre­sented by Home Beau­ti­ful, join the Cooks Co-op jour­ney as we meet the farm­ers, share some de­li­cious recipes and re­veal the shed-to-restau­rant trans­for­ma­tion.
