this week 18 May, 2013…Champagne Editor Kaaren Palmer reviews dinner by Heston Blumenthal…please click here to read her review.
May 14…“Iam still mulling over NOMA and The Fat Duck, both so amazing in their very individual ways. We are sitting in the amazing St. Pancras Station Hotel, in what was
formerly the booking office. Ordering a half of Louis Roederer. It just
arrived, room temp, we have told them off.
Tonight, we are dining in the Gilbert Scott Restaurant Kevin’s choice,
Kevin’s part of the holiday. It’s a Marcus Wareing in a grand part of
original Midland Hotel. Anyway, the whole place is one of London’s
“finest restored buildings”. We agree!” Kaaren Palmer

to see and read about sauchin 2011 and our estages please
2012 was spent contemplating how best to move our efforts in China forward and how we can bring more young Chinese hospitality professionals to South Australia (and Australia) to experience the Australian way first hand. This is an inexpensive concept that creates long–term friendships and loyalties. So…expect to hear more from us this year!
the great southern rocklobster…crayfish to us, is in season
Why, we don’t understand, but despite the fact it is highly prized by chefs all over the world, it is disappointingly, hard to find on menus
throughout Australia. For some terrific recipes click on the images below.
