    Oh yum those arancini look divine. Lovely apple pie too. And of course I am so jealous that you got to eat at hestons. Melbourne is great any time of year!

    When we get to come to Australia again, I’m coming to the Gold Coast and bringing my boys to your kitchen for sure!!!

    I’m hoping that we’ll come some time within the next 2 years so by then, you’ll be some famous blogger with an astronomically watched youtube channel.

    Today Sam and I made vanilla ice cream using a custard base of egg yolks, sugar, milk and vanilla bean and then added Bulla cream when it cooled and it fluffed so well in the ice cream maker. It’s gone already!! Sam, Moses and I have watched SO many youtubes in the last few years – too many to count. Anyway, we got the recipe from Todd’s Kitchen on youtube – his channel is pretty funny, he has some great ideas.

    Do some more video’s of your cooking – we’ll watch them. I’m going to subscribe to your channel now.

    There’s another channel where the guy sings his own intro – it’s called ‘the morning gardener’s show’ you could sing an intro to your cooking show xx

      Hi Jac, so lovely to hear from you 🙂 I would love to do more videos and I have many, but the editing is a killer, I need a camera man and editor while I cook! I’m so glad you have found my blog! Liz xxx

      Thanks Rachel, I walked into the market today and they had one left, so I snapped it up, really it is only once a year, so why not 🙂 I always have food envy at your fantastic fresh produce 🙂

    Eating in Melbourne is always a treat, and The Fat Duck would be superlative. But your eating at home is extraordinary as well, and I think truffle mash and steak would top it off quite nicely.
    OZ HARVEST are a wonderful organisation and Ronni Kahn is truly an inspiring woman.

    Elizabeth, there’s just one word for your post this month: sumptuous! Can’t wait to read about your food coma-inducing 17 course adventure, too. Thanks for the links! Cool tip about storing truffles (the chocolate kind) in rice. (Didn’t know that.) Your arancini look marvelous — everything does! I’m devouring your photos and eating your words. 🙂 I also thought it was fitting to include the #thinkeatsave effort — food waste runs rampant, and making the most of everything is the only way I can support my “champagne taste.” Wonderful post!

      Oh Kim, I total agree.. Um, I don’t think you store the chocolate truffles in rice 🙂 only the fungi kind! LOL! I totally agree re the food wastage… it is very important and I think I am going to get more involved with this organisation in the future! Thanks for stopping by! Liz xx

    Coming to Melbourne for a holiday (even in winter) to eat is a perfectly good excuse. I am green with envy about the whole Fat Duck thing.
