Time Out Melbourne magazine this month

There’s not even a small part of me that thinks you’re poring over my editorial column rather than racing to the cover story to find out which fiercely ambitious chef you should be adding to your Christmas card list. Nothing I can say here could compete with “raw ribbons of calamari masquerading as fettucine” or “honeysoaked deep-fried doughnut balls”. Rah rah rah. Are you even listening at all? “Smoky bacon dashi poured over a noodle nest cradling a 62-degree poached egg...” No. Till next time, then.
