The Telltale Podcast

Episode 10 - Angela Hirst of Wandering Cooks

June 28, 2017

In this episode of Telltale, Angela Hirst, the founder of food startup entrepreneur space Wandering Cooks, discusses how her drive to be a part of the food industry led to what is now the biggest food innovation space of its kind in the world.

When you wander into Wandering Cooks in South Brisbane, it's like being transported into a foodie heaven. A wide open outdoor event space is lined by beautiful wooden tables and a living, breathing green wall draws you in to a funky indoor bar area that screams sit down with friends and have a quiet one.

But it's off to the side, in Wandering Cooks' commercial kitchen spaces, that Angela says the real magic happens.

Ninety-eight businesses from bakers, catering operators through to health food entrepreneurs and cupcake makers call the commercial kitchen spaces their home, buoyed by the fact the huge startup costs that usually hinder food businesses before they begin do not apply.
