To be absolutely honest with you, this “blog” was born as I was watching that one film with Meryl Streep and some other bird in it; “Julie and Julia”. This whole “blog” thing seemed like a grand idea so my mind was set… I was going to start a “blog”. But first, I needed to find out exactly what a “blog” was.

After a little research my mad detective skills (and junior detective’s kit) helped me deduce that it was some kind of platform where people just put up whatever the fuck they wanted and somewhere out there in the inter web super cosmos, amongst the billions of virtual stars, there would be at least one person who found it interesting.

Although it was a concept that was as foreign as sex with some one other than himself for a teenage boy, I liked the odds… so I was in…

There was no chance on this good green earth that we live on that I was not going to be writing about food. Food is “my thing” through and through. I’m up in the morning (that is not a euphamism… although, maybe it is) thinking about food. I go to work and cook food for people all day. I come home and cook dinner for family and friends. I cook some more on my days off. Sure I do other things… but I just can’t remember what they are right now.

So I have set out with the express purpose of turning your kitchen nightmares (yes, I’m looking at you) into sweet, sweet dreams of unicorns and rainbows and waterfalls made of lemonade.

I have not the time to do this all on my lonesome so I have enlisted the the help of my long time friend, mentor, compatriot and friend (yeah, friend twice OK? K), Pauly from the segment known as “Paul’s Caul” in my quest to help you eat simply but well, or learn how to entertain something more than just the thought of cooking for a pretty girl, or how to prepare a feast for a horde of travelling carnie folk and also with the additional by-lines of enjoying a little drinky and plenty of belly laughs on the journey… also, there will be plenty of language previously reserved for use exclusively by the salty old sea dog… and grammar will be at a bare minimum. But, if you think you can handle that, we’re here for you. A metaphorical crutch for the metaphorical gimpy leg that is you floundering about in the actual kitchen.

Believe me when I tell you this is possibly the most sense you will find anywhere on this blog…

Let’s do this shit!

    Being a cook from the north coast, and growing up with some of the best damn fruit and veg in the world in your back yard it’s possible at times to take it for granted and forget how blessed we are.
    I remember walking home after school in the afternoons, grazing off mulberries from the trees, apricots and passion fruits as frequent as fingerlimes, and stalls set up selling watermelons and whatever other tasty shit was growning around your way.

    Now I live in the city.
    I still get to eat good produce, but it means a trip to the shops to pick up overpriced fruit and veg that was picked two weeks ago.

    I found the markets out at flemington last week and noticed that everything was from north coast nsw. Herbs and salad leaves from billinudgel, blueberries bananas and strawberries from woolgoolga, witlof and fingerlimes and zucchini flowers from uki, mangos from bellingen and tomatoes from Brunswick heads etc.. etc..

    The point of the story folks…..

    ..a fist in the air for those who choose to represent Australian farming, nsw produce, mid north coast karma and brilliant food.

    Its beautiful stuff..

    Is it bad that I clicked on ‘follow’ just because your blog name is f*ing awesome?! Hahaa… I definitely agree with both the ‘sentiment in bold’ and everything else that you’ve shared about food on your blog. Food lovers unite. Can’t wait to actually read some of your foodie sh*t brother 😉

    I just realized you’re a guy! I guess I just assumed most food bloggers are female. Sorry! I honestly wish that everyone would say if they’re male or female, and also state where they live. But maybe I’m just overly curious!!!

    Since I get tons of entertainment value reading your posts as well as drooling over many recipes, I have nominated you for the lovely blog award. Now, I am a very novice blogger still trying to figure things out. So I am not sure if I did this properly or if it is «politically correct» to nominate someone (I read somewhere that it was like a chain letter) but what the hell, I did it anyways :). And truth be told, I was flattered to get a nomination myself… So here is the link:
    Love your blog!!!
