After abandoning the Sydney city life, Michelle Crawford moved to the Tasmanian countryside to pursue the simpler things in life. In 2007 she started her blog Hugo and Elsa and began to document her life with her husband, two children, chickens, home, vegetable garden, camping adventures and all things food and cooking.
Michelle also works as a food stylist and home economist. Her work has appeared in publications such as Feast Magazine, Country Style and Inside Out. Michelle’s first book, A Table in the Orchard, was published in 2015 and illustrates the joys of leaving the city life behind.
