Barossa Unearthed: Sharon Edwards (Linke)

WORDS & PHOTOGRAPHY

Pete Thornton

what pete shot

A ‘mostly’ portrait and ‘brief’ interview series by professional photographer Pete Thornton exploring the idea that one image has the power to tell the whole story.

Each ‘sitter’ suggests the next person to be photographed in this series, and thus ensues an interesting and unknown trail of Barossa identities to come.

Stay tuned… Pete

LINKE'S BAKEHOUSE & PANTRY​

There’s an old green table out the back of Linke’s Bakehouse where Sharon Edwards (nee Linke) toils away making her famous Barossa Beef and Shiraz pie. 

That table, with all its worn-out patches, dings and scratches has a story to tell. It’s the original Linke family dining table, and it sits in the family home where Sharon, her siblings, parents and grandparents all grew up sharing dinners, sharing laughs and ‘not eating her mashed potatoes’ like she was told to.

Now, it’s the table where Sharon bakes on a daily basis.

Using local ingredients and Light Pass Shiraz, produced by her brother in law, these Beef and Shiraz pies are just one of the many delights on offer at Linke’s Bakehouse & Pantry.

Everyone loves a good pie!
