HARVEST Blue Mountains + Beyond is the second bi-annual publication from Just Pressed, a boutique publishing house owned and operated by local journalists Jacqueline Forster and Lisa Doust.

Jacqueline is a keen but not always successful backyard vegie grower, bushwalker, traveller and lover of fine food and wine. She has written articles on everything from rabbit farming to creating a patch from scratch for various publications, including The Sydney Morning Herald, ABC Organic Gardener, Country Style and Slow magazine. She lives in Leura with her husband, daughter and crazy Border Collie x Cattle dog.

Having co-established the annual Leura Harvest Festival six years back, Lisa is now passionate about raising the profile of the regional food and wine scene. She has also written multiple stories on sustainability, green spaces, outstanding chefs and magical private gardens for a range of magazines, including House & Garden, ABC Gardening Australia, Your Garden, Sydney Living, Green and The Block. Lisa and her teenage sons have long
called Katoomba home.

“Research from Destination NSW shows ‘dining at a restaurant or café’ is the most popular activity for visitors to the Blue Mountains. In response, the Blue Mountains Economic Enterprise (BMEE) is seeing local hospitality business owners stage innovative events and collaborations that are helping mark the Blue Mountains on the map as a food destination.” – Bernard Fehon, CEO BMEE
