Texture from Ricks: Tuesdays of Texture


© irene waters 2018

Rick’s Artisan Pies and Sour Dough is a new store in town. One of the girls from Jaspers (which has changed hands) now works there and obviously we had to go and see what her new work conditions were like.

Wow were we impressed. Jeff from Jaspers would have been impressed and we were impressed by Jeff’s oven ware. Ricks has the latest of the late when it comes to ovens and it must be a real delight not having to come in at 4 am to do whatever had to be done as these ovens do the lot. Even keep the mother sour at exactly the right temperature. You can tell I’m no baker but I know what I enjoy eating and this veggie pie was just delicious. Even the texture made my mouth drool.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.
