Wendy HargreavesWho? What?
Journalist since typewriters. Food tragic. Lucky for Wendy, she found a way to combine the two, launching a food section for Melbourne's biggest selling newspaper and gasbagging about it on radio. Now she's driving Five of the Best and popping up on Melbourne's top-rating 3AW as a food and fun expert.
