Cooking in a Teacup

Lesley J Mooney

This story relates to my own individual, genuine experiences which occurred previously from early 1945, and I have naturally included the details of a few years before and after, to explain my circumstances as they were then.

Just turning twenty one in 1952, my father wrote and asked me an odd question, which was to take on a job as a cook on a station, up in North Queensland. Though ‘totally inexperienced', this position sounded interesting and intriguing. New adventures lay ahead for me on that unknown part of the Australian outback. I doubt if my father even considered my lack of capabilities for this position at all. Later this job also offered another one, with the bush nurse asking for me to come and nurse, care and cook for, an elderly man at McKinley Qld, again absolutely inexperienced. These parts of my story included meeting new people, and experiences that occurred in my life, then and in the future.

As this is real life over periods of years, it also contains personal details of the author and family's lives, and that of others'.

This is not a cooking book and there are no recipes given.
