Sally celebrates 25 years with Creek to Coast

For over 25 years Sally Jenyns has been our resident seafood chef on the show – whipping up recipes with ease – anything from a seafood salsa verde to a coconut chili crab, Sal has cooked it all.

Featuring in over 350 episodes, it is a testament to her resilience in the industry and how much of a damn legend she is! However, as the saying goes “all good things must come to an end” and at the end of 2022 Sally has decided to hang up the apron, (of course on her own terms).

In telling Scotty of the announcement, Sally said “It’s been almost half my life. 25 years feels like probably 24 years longer than I ever thought I’d be on TV and the first Creek to Coast, I think was in 1999, if I’m correct, the show was, you know, a new iteration of what we’d already been doing.

But it’s lovely to leave with the show on a high, everything’s going so well. The show is as popular as ever and I just think that it just feels right.”

On the question of what’s next, Sal is seeking a quieter time where she can do what she wants! “I’d like to play a bit more golf and travel”.

With so many memories, spanning over two decades there are plenty of memories of the crew, destinations, and stories but a couple of prominent memories Sally recalls includes “One of the stories I remember doing was snorkeling on Flinders Reef. I’ve had every holiday of my life down around Moreton Island and the day I went out and had a snorkel, I mean it was like this, it was glamour, weather.

But around cooking, my, of course, favorite memory would be bringing Rick Stein on to one of our shows. I’d already worked with him on his seafood odyssey for the BBC, which was a complete thrill.

I’ve had some incredible experiences I would never have had otherwise, except for this great job.”

From all the crew here at Creek to Coast and Seven Productions, we wish Sal all the best with her future endeavors – you’ve been nothing but incredible to work with, you will be missed!
