Food Heroes: Barb Buggy
Barb Buggy’s Barossa Bark
Barb produces small batches of hand cut lavosh-style Bark crispbread in her purpose-built production kitchen next to her home in Greenock. Well known in the region as a passionate chef, she began making Barossa Bark for her catering business. The popularity of the product led her to produce it for the retail trade and now, together with her husband Scott, she works to meet public demand for Barb’s Bark.
The Product: Truly hand rolled and hand cut, her rustic and individual lavosh range includes 5 styles – nude, salt & pepper, poppy seed, sesame and nigella seed.
Tracing the Hands: All ingredients are locally sourced and preservative free. Barb and Scott work together to create, bake and package Barossa Bark.
Why Barossa: Barb came to the Barossa to be near her sister, seeing it as a great place to raise her children. She is part of a supportive community of female chefs who meet occasionally over a meal.
