Short biography
Pamela Clark is probably Australia's most published cookbook producer. Clark began her cooking career as a cookery demonstrator and teacher for St George Council.

In 1969 Clark was offered the position of Chief Home Economist in The Australian Women's Weekly Test Kitchen. The AWW, at that time, had the largest circulation, per capita, of any the world's lifestyle magazines. During her four-year tenure, she was involved in the production of nine cookbooks plus "The Australian Women's Weekly Original Cookbook". She was also responsible for the Test Kitchen's operations, organising testing and photography for all the food features that appeared in the Weekly. In 1973 Clark moved to Tasmania where she worked as the food presenter on two local television programs and a radio program. She also taught Adult Education food classes and was involved in the organisation, opening and running of a restaurant in a new hotel in Hobart.

Asked to return to the Weekly's Test Kitchen in 1978, again as Chief Home Economist, Clark was instrumental in the production of The Golden Cooking Library, Cookery Cards, AWW Home Library Cookbooks and recipes for The Weekly. In 1984, she became Food Editor for the Weekly and its AWW Home Library cookbook offshoot, then in 1999 was appointed AWW Test Kitchen Director and Food Director for ACP Books which produced the AWW cookbooks.
