Retired Aussie Chef and cake decorator Married to a Californian, (Jack) and proud mama to Rufus the basset hound (who loves everything I cook (except popcorn and won't eat lettuce). I have always loved every recipe by Julia Child. Yes I know it's rather outdated, but I never had a recipe of hers that didn't turn out superb. My favourite piece of equipment is the NuWave Oven and I tend to adapt most recipies to it. Unfortunately, Jack & I are about to be lap-banded as My darling has to lose 20 kg before heart surgery. I guess that I will be investigating recipes for life after that procedure.
