About Me
I'm a Melbourne boy, hailing from St Kilda with one ex, one current wife and four kids. Love the outdoors and making new discoveries. I cook a lot at home (cheers from wife) and do some preserving, mostly jams, pickles and fruit liqueurs. This is the diary of a cooking journey.

Melbourne Cup Carnival
It's the Melbourne Cup race next Tuesday, the penultimate event of the Spring racing carnival, so like most Melburnians, we're having a break for four days. That's right, Melbourne goes into party mode for four days, starting out with Derby Day tomorrow, probably the premier day in all Australia for quality race horses.

As kitchen hand has already given a tip for the major race, The Derby, I've consulted my horse racing guru, who has kindly given a couple of tips for the lead up races, with some each way value. Race 3, The Fuzz and race 4, Serious Speed. Like kitchen hand says, just don't put the house on it.

See you after the break. With some cake.

Enjoy the carnival Neil, be sure to leave the chequebook at home, or you may have no house to come back to!! looking forward to read some more on the molecular topic later.

Enjoy your Day at the Races, and have a Mint Julep for me...or whatever the local traditional equivalent may be.

I had a beloved uncle who was the editor of the local racing paper. The only tip he ever gave the family was, as may be expected, don't bet on the horses. Happily, no one ever listened. Have fun and good luck!

Four days to party sounds super. Then do you get four days for recovery!
