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.

Here I Am
Well it looks like the last known person in the blogging universe has been tagged ~ thanks to Angela at Seriously Brilliant Stuff.

So here I am.

Seven Things To Do Before I Die

Learn Polish - it is the sound of the wind & rain.
Write more food articles for publication.
Catch a wild barramundi.
Go back to Tahiti.
Buy a house with a big garden.
Work in the food industry - now you know I'm mad.
Drink my only bottle of 1957 Tokai Essence.

Seven Things I Cannot Do

Cure Autism - but I can help someone with it to be the best person they can.
Tap dance - too noisy.
Be a handyman- I cook, alright already.
A Rubicks Cube.
Stand by when someone needs help.
Cook Asian food well - I try, I really do.
Put links in the text - I nearly got it one time, maybe this year.

Seven Things That Attracted Me To My Spouse

The way she looks at me.
Her accent - it really does it for me.
Her green eyes.
Her smile.
The calmness that surrounds her.
The aura of mystery that sometimes drives me crazy.
She knew species of mushrooms that I didn't.

Seven Things I Say (or write) The Most

"That's a nice pirate hat."
"Scarbier": translation - treasure, as in "Hello treasure."
"Sail the seven seas with me."
"Go Bombers."
"M., what are you doing."

Seven Books I Like

Moby Dick, Hermann Melville - it's a fishing story, a very big one, dictionary essential.
Collected short stories of Somerset Maugham.
Memories of Gascony, Pierre Koffmann.
La Tante Claire, Pierre Koffmann - two cookbooks that are a seriously good read.
The Sum of All Fears, Tom Clancy - he nearly got it all right.
The Scarlet Letter, Nathaniel Hawthorne - what love does.
The Cat In The Hat, Dr Seuss - who doesn't like a cat like that.

Seven Movies I Could Watch Over & Over Again

Roxanne - modern take on an old tale.
Sound of Music - okay, so I'm goofy.
South Pacific - real goofy
Finding Nemo - first computer animation I really liked, always dance with M. to the song at the end.
Titanic - first movie with the wife.
Blues Brothers - couldn't have more fun if you tried.
Woodstock - great music.

Seven People I Want To Join In

I nominate Greg seven times. Of all the people who should have a blog, you should. Hurry up.

Yeah, Rodgers & Hammerstein really nailed that one, atmospheric tunes, catchy tunes, tender love songs, it's the full bottle. The story was good too. Thanks for tagging me, it was harder than I thought, but worthwhile.
