About Us


We are two sister’s Laura and Jess who have recently returned to the Hunter, and our love for food. Having worked away for the last 10 years in the corporate world and on our fashion label Matters Speaking + travelling, we wanted to connect with the community and create something that we are so passionate about. We believe life is about creating memories with people you love. And we like to do that with food. We have completely different skill sets but believe we do life and business better together. Laura has completed a degree in Tourism and Event Management during which she worked at Newcastle Knights and and has years of quality and document control experience, and Jess has completed a traineeship and diploma in Hospitality Management and was a Hotel Duty Manager at the Shoal Bay Country Club before being the creative and marketing drive behind Matters Speaking which was stocked in over 60 retail outlets in Australia and overseas, and was also featured in Vogue. We have combined our experience, and life long love of food to create Sharp + Co.
