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.

Eat.Drink.Blog. Conference
What better way to spend a lazy Sunday than with a roomful of your best mates at Australia's inaugural food blogger's conference right here in my hometown of Melbourne.

Blogging related information came thick and fast, with fantastic presenters from all around Australia, who gave so much of themselves, talking about all aspects of the blogging experience. My thanks goes to each and every one of them, I learned so much from you all.

Thank you for the tireless work of the organisers, Mellie, April, Jess, Reemski and Ed, without whom this would never have happened.

Dear Tammi the moderator, what can I say? Once we learned of your chicken dispatching abilities, the whole room was in thrall to you - Pippy Longstocking drawn large.

Our wonderful sponsors, Essential Ingredient, St Ali, SBS Food, Der Raum, Prentice Wines, Red Hill Microbrewery, Daylesford & Hepburn Springs Mineral Water Co., without whom none of this would have been possible, thanks guys.

To the indefatigable Pim Techamuanvivit for surmounting insurmountable obstacles (Melbourne trains) just to be with us, a top effort award.

Finally, thanks to all the attendees, great to meet everyone that I did, and apologies if I missed you, it was such a busy day.

For a neat wrap-up, check out what The Age had to say.
