Sally's Irish Pantry was born from a period of trauma.
It all started in 2016 when Sally's husband, Nathan was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 32.
Trying to understand and manage his disease was consuming for the married couple and then tragedy struck just 5 months later when Sally was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her treatment plan consisted of 3 surgeries, IVF, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. During this time she found comfort in baking her grandmothers 100 year old recipes, which also made her feel closer to her family that were back in Ireland.
"I used to deliver loaves of bread for friends and then people started to ask for more and more. It really helped me to keep busy and keep my mind on something positive"' - Sally
It was this trauma that led the couple to move to the Gold Coast in search of a slower pace of life. Sally then began to give her bread as gifts to friends and it was quickly picked up by local cafe owner Ant Ewart of Earth Cafe. Ant only sources the best local suppliers who have a passion for food and community.
Sally and Nathan can usually be found walking their dog, Bryn along the local beaches and parks of Paradise Point.
