Welcome to SMUDGE
The bond of mother and daughters has inspired a publishing house out of Melbourne, Australia. With a passion for food, wine and all things local, Jonette George and her daughters, Daniele and Kaitlyn Wilton have their series of books surrounding their ethos.
Smudge Publishing, now a team of 14 showcases cities and regions throughout Victoria and NSW in a few different series of books. Smudge has highlighted the unique cafe, restaurant and bar culture in Melbourne and Sydney in their books.
The team's efforts have been recognised in New York City with an International IPPY Award for their first Flavours of Melbourne book. The Second Flavours of Melbourne book, published in December 2013, won "Best Culinary Travel Cookbook in Australia" at the Interntional Gourmand Awards.
