Looking forward to the forthcoming barbecue demonstrations in Harvey Norman Stores. Great restaurants getting it so very right!

We’re in training for the Aussie Barbie/Sunbeam barbecue demonstrations in Harvey Norman stores in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane during September and October. As well as showing you how to knock out the perfect steak, we’ll be doing Turkish shish kebabs, Chilli prawns on the wok and my current fave, the ‘back the front’marinated rump. Speaking of steak, I had a cracker at Bodega in Surry Hills last week- a fantastic piece of sirloin, perfectly cooked. Those boys really know what they’re doing. Ditto Steve Manfredi up at Bells at Kilcare. Whether Singo buit the place so he’d have somewhere decent to eat on the central coast doesn’t matter. It’s a serious restaurant with seriously good, not over-tricked food, a very good short wine list and great front of house everything by Julie (formerly Manfredi) Hughes. How does that work, working with your ex-missus? Anyway it certainly doesn’t effect the result. If only we four boys hadn’t treated the short-ish wine list as challenge and tried to sample every bottle. It made for a very tedious and slow drive back to the big smoke, just in time for lunch at Red Lantern, which is foolproof. I’m up to my ears in food, writing the third cookbook and trying out three or four recipes a night. This is doing nothing for my boyish figure. See you next time. Kim.
