Pamela Clark

With over 35 years working on The Australian Women’s Weekly Cookbooks, it’s no wonder Pamela Clark is a household name in Australian cooking. If you’ve ever cooked or baked, chances are you were using a recipe tested by Pamela. Having worked in the food industry for over 50 years, Pamela is an encyclopedia of all things cooking. Pamela started off as chief home economist in the Weekly’s Test Kitchen creating recipes, making sure the recipes worked and were triple-tested. This included working on some of the classics such as Chinese Cooking Class Cookbook, The Original Australian Women’s Weekly Cookbook and the book that everyone has a story about, The Children’s Birthday Cake Book. Since then Pamela has remained close to the famous Test Kitchen in various roles. Today, Pamela is the Editorial and Food Director of The Australian Women’s Weekly Cookbooks, producing over 50 cookbooks a year.

“I am excited to be a part of this wonderful initiative and can’t wait to get baking this October! Red Cross, just like The Australian Women’s Weekly has been helping Australians for over 80 years – it’s a pleasure to be able to support great Red Cross programmes. I am very excited to be part of the Red Cross Big Cake Bake as we all know I love a bit of baking, especially if the recipes are on the healthy side and, anything that allows people to get together over cake for a good cause is a brilliant idea.“
