Product Information

Catherine Warnock's humorous 'Kitchen Philosopher' column appears weekly in newspapers across North East Victoria. She is the mum of three sons, James, Jess and Tom, Nanna to Cody and (as a tragic empty-nester) has recently fallen prey to the charms of Scruffy Dawg, the very naughty Mini Schnauzer. Catherine reckons you should never get too smug about your parenting skills because kids can always find ways to bring you down a peg or two! However, despite having suffered such humiliations many times, Catherine still thinks she's a reasonably 'cool' parent even if her kids DO make fun of her sad 1970s dancing technique! Having previously been employed in youth, community and administrative roles Catherine's current role is Executive Assistant to the Regional Director of Education and Early Childhood Development in Hume Region, Victoria. She lives in Benalla and plays the guitar really badly.
