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.

Menu for Hope V

It's that time of year, braving carparks and madding crowds to shop for Christmas Eve dinner or Christmas lunch; planning a cornucopia of fabulous feasting with family and friends. But in some parts of the world, that is an impossible dream for some, just having enough food to get by with day to day is a struggle and grind.

So, Menu for Hope, organized by Pim from Chez Pim, is something that the food blogger collective does to help those less fortunate than ourselves. As in last year, all the funds raised will benefit the school lunch program in Lesotho, as well as support the World Food Program's local procurement initiative, which contracts local farmers to grow food to supply the feeding program.

Here is where you come in. For a measly US$10, you could win an amazing night out, dinner with John Lethlean, Australia's premier food critic and food writer for The Age and Gourmet Traveller, while he does a review. Invaluable insights into what Lethlean looks for in a restaurant experience, or imagine, just chatting to someone who has had such a profound influence on the Melbourne dining scene.

I'm torn, not really wanting to give this prize away, it's my idea of Apicius nirvana and you lucky things have the chance to win it!

All you have to do is go visit Ed at Tomato for the complete prize roundup for our region, or go directly to Firstgiving and bid on prize code AP12.

Good luck!

Add on the cost of air fare for $10 and I'm there.

I think I'll have to wait a little longer. But man that would be fun.

Hi Neil, is Lethlean reading his new employment contract in this photo?
