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.
