Mary Anne Wool­more

Cre­ative cook

The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - FOOD & WINE -

Mary Anne Wool­more’s kitchen ex­per­i­ments led to the cre­ation of her lo­cally-made gourmet bal­samic vine­gars.

Wool­more’s All Nat­u­ral bal­samic vine­gars, all made in Mary Anne’s Mag­ill kitchen, in­clude or­ange scented, star anise and orig­i­nal sticky va­ri­eties.

“I had a huge bag of star anise in the cup­board a while back and I didn’t know what to do with them so de­cided to use them to flavour a bal­samic vine­gar and it tasted fan­tas­tic,” Mary Anne says.

“I came up with the or­ange-scented vine­gar when I was want­ing to learn how to cook duck prop­erly and I was look­ing for the per­fect ac­com­pa­ni­ment.”

Mary Anne’s bou­tique condi­ments are avail­able at 34 out­lets in South Aus­tralia.

The tal­ented cook, who has a sales back­ground, says Wool­more’s is a true fam­ily af­fair. Her hus­band Grant, kids Nick, 18, and Zoe, 22, and her mum Pam are all part of the busi­ness.

“I do my de­liv­er­ies on Thurs­days so you don’t want to be at our house on Wed­nes­day nights which is when ev­ery­one chips in to get the or­ders packed up,” she says.

“My hus­band is in real es­tate but used to be a pho­tog­ra­pher with a dig­i­tal imag­ing busi­ness so he cre­ated all my prod­uct la­bels.”
