I thought I'd make an 'introduction' post before I forget too (As is my wont).
I'm a 22 year old Software Engineer living in sunny Australia. I think Vegemite is an awesome breakfast spread (That your FDA banned from import... Added Folate is the DEVIL! Apparently. Potentially Carcinogenic food colourings, though, they're fine), that "Half and Half" is a measure of any given thing, not a dairy product, and that Christmas is a good time for Fruit Cake Gelati. Oh, and if you tell me to "chuck another prawn on the barbie" I'm likely to tell you to chuck something else, similar to pork, on first, but that's because I don't like seafood.
When I'm not studying or working for ungreatful lawyers, I like to cook (obviously), go to Rovers (think 20 year old Scouts... But more hardcore and fun), take black and white photographs, and update my blog (Which I can give you the address for, if you PM me).
I recently grabbed a Gelati machine and am starting to get fun with that... Maple Syrup gelati has been my big success so far, but there are other, more interesting things in the mix. My favourite TV chef is Alton Brown
, my favourite cooking ingredient is Tinned tomatoes
, and I've recently become addicted to buying ultra-cookbooks... The Silver Spoon
, The Cooks Book
, 1000 Indian recipies
Sometime in the future I hope to buy a Kitchen Aide mixer, and put a smile on my dial with an oven that *doesn't* burn everything put into it, as a matter of course. This Face
will be very happy to leave his dodgy townhouse and get a real kitchen, which I'll share with my boyfriend, christen with Osso Bucco, and use to cook my favourite foods, such as pasta, chilled desserts, things involving Australian bushfoods (Kanga steak + Bush Tomato Glaze = Win), cocktails (They're a food, garnishes!) and biscuits (No, not those biscuits, what you guys call Cookies).
Thanks for listening!
