Qualified cook, artist, teacher, historian and storyteller Paul County established Tasmanian Food and Drink Books in 2006, with the aim to produce quality Tasmanian food and drink books with an historical focus.

Fifth generation Tasmanian Paul County spent most summer vacations skylarking on his family's apple orchard at Cygnet in the produce-rich Huon Valley. He has many colourful ancestors: one an Irish surveyor who charted the rugged west coast of Tasmania in the 1820s, another Richard Hill, was a pioneering flour miller, orchardist, hotelier and saw miller from Honeywood (now Geeveston) in the Huon region from the 1850s-1920s. He built two vessels The Governor Weld and Annie Hill for his timber trade, another a preacher from Duck River near Smithton on the north-west coast and a fourth who played violin in Martin Cash’s bushranger gang.

Paul also founded The Culinary Historians of Tasmania, which collects Tasmanian ephemera, menus and cookbooks, photographs and collectables in 1998 and has received grants to exhibit his portraits from Arts Tasmania, various Tasmanian Councils and The Australia Council for the Arts.

In 2001 three of his chef portraits were exhibited in the Photo Technica Award at The Australian Centre of Photography in Sydney and he was recognised with only ten others as one the most promising young Australian photographic artists in Australia.

The passionate production team include Tasmanian food and drink experts who share the publisher’s vision for producing beautiful and informative world-class Tasmanian food books that show off the island’s internationally acclaimed produce and producers, climate, stunning landscape and lifestyle.
