My Trip to Restaurant School

Knives and forks akimbo. Napkins scrunched into leftover soup. Diners wandering around the restaurant while on the phone. 


Radio Chat – Restaurant Rules

I love dropping into ABC Radio Melbourne to chat about what I’ve been eating, cooking and learning. This time, I came in to talk about restaurant etiquette. What are diners doing to drive restaurateurs crazy and what annoys diners about eating in restaurants? This has been a hot topic recently – the spur for this discussion was the founding of Restaurant School by restaurateur Angie Giannakodakis.


Exploring Penang! Is This Asia’s Most Delicious Island?

I love Penang! This Malaysian island is such a foodie hotspot with multiple cultures and cuisines and so many great things to eat. Join me as I eat Nonya kueh, Hainan chicken rice, Cantonese yum cha, fresh tofu and soy milk, and even have a turn stir-frying at a hawker stall.


Vadouvan Curry Powder

Vadouvan is a French spin on Indian curry powder and one of the must-haves in my pantry. I use it in so many dishes. I love its warm heat, rounded flavours and intoxicating fragrance, thanks to lovely curry leaves.
