All About Barbie

Feb 11, 2010

I thought the BBQ business was supposed to quieten down after Australia Day. Not this year. I’ve been booked to take aussiebarbie.com.au to do some work with The Brumbies rugby team, at The Sydney Royal Easter Show, at the Orange Food festival and more work with Mission Australia. All will be great fun and allow me to mix with lots of great people.

I am madly writing my fourth book in four years with Penguin-done 120 out of 160 recipes but the last ones are always the hardest. My third book, The Great Aussie Family Cookbook launches on March 1 in plenty of time for Mother’s Day. Classes at my Boys Can Cook cooking school kick off again this month so it’s a happily busy time. On the cooking front, our family holiday to India spawned a great number of new recipes, most which will filter through to the cooking school during the year, some I’m sure will be adapted for the barbie... The lamb curries and dry lamb dishes from Rajahstan were my favourites and I have been busy pestering Ian Hemphill at Herbie’s for the best Indian spices. Back to the next cookbook. Number 121 coming up…
