Of Croatian heritage, with Polish extend family Vesna was able to learn the ancient art of preserving and enriching food from the elders still practicing traditional techniques in Newcastle N.S.W. Early study and working life started for her as a pathology technician in Biochemistry and Microbiology laboratories, giving Vesna the fundamental understanding of the exciting process involved in the creation of fermented food. Art study took her to other parts of the world, along the way discovering new flavours and traditional practices used in making fermented foods.

Vensa started her business Pantry Culture in Taradale Victoria, to promote the craft of small batch home fermenting while continuing to experiment with new techniques and flavours using the vegetables grown in her ever expanding garden.
