CHEF AND COOKBOOK AUTHOR, 34 Formally trained chef Sarah is now rarely to be found in the kitchen, preferring to cook over an open fire in the wilds of Tasmania. How did travelling around Australia while producing your cookbook change your style? Being outdoors and in earthy environments, you need to wear things that are a little bit more practical. So, I tried. But then I realised that I preferred wearing dresses and skirts so I just embraced it and now my local drycleaner is very happy. What’s your typical everyday outfit? The word typical doesn’t really exist in my world! It could be anything from a ball dress in the fields, to some Hard Yakka overalls… but no matter what, it will be worn while cooking. What are your wardrobe essentials? A vintage dress with some sort of ‘wow’ factor, overalls, denim jeans, cotton drill shirts, a few T-shirts and Blundstone boots. I always toss in some sort of quirky factor just to be different. Think a hat, a knotted scarf, whatever. Do you have any favourite clothing labels? No, it’s just what catches my eye, while I have many favourites, I’m not partial to any brand. That said, if I could get my hands on a Giambattista Valli ball gown I wouldn’t say no and would wear it every day. Where do you love to shop? I love Tuchuzy, but mostly I go to vintage shops in Tasmania. What are your go-to hair and beauty products? I use Kevin Murphy for my hair. I don’t wash it very often as I’m in the surf a lot but they have a great leave-in conditioner called Leave-in.repair. I use By Terry’s Tea to Tan Face and Body for a bit of highlight, and for moisturiser, it’s Dermalogica all the way. I’m also obsessed with Dr Bronner’s peppermint lip balm. Do you have any favourite accessories? Hats. La-based Janessa Leoné has some fabulous ones. And I love the classic Akubra. Are you a fan of colour and pattern in fashion? I sure am; I love floral. What do you never leave home without? My Maxmara sunglasses and a pocket knife. Favourite book? Nigel Slater’s The Kitchen Diaries (Harper Collins, $54.99). Best style advice?

CLOCKWISE, FROM ABOVE Travelling and cooking outdoors means clothing has to be practical and comfortable; an avid surfer, Sarah packs a wetsuit wherever she goes; she also loves a statement skirt or dress.
