RECIPE OF THE WEEK

one day in september...


Oh yes it's Grand Final Fever at hml headquarters... oh hang on, no it's not, neither one of our teams managed to get through the confusing finals series surprise surprise... but nevertheless in honor of Melbourne's Grand Final party atmosphere we looked through the archives to come up with a football themed recipe for the big day. We needed look no further than Binny Lum's Favourite Recipes of Famous Men another op shop gem, that groups a motley assortment of local and international gentlemen and their favourite recipes together. From Rock Hudson's Bourbon Barbeque to Don Dunstan's Forced Meat (ooo errrr), Phillip Adam's Bazza Beef to Leonard Teale's Homicide Ham Slice it's all gold, gold, gold for the dinner table. We especially enjoy the numerous autographed pages (it seems the former owner 'Babs' was quite in the know with the local glitterati) but couldn't go past Louie the Lips' Chicken a' la Magpie as the top pick for today's festivities...

Oh and if any of you out there actually want to know what Graham Kennedy, Don Chip, Don Burrows, Andrew Peacock (caviar and cheese balls - too perfect) Derek Nimmo, James Last or Dave Brubeck like to eat we're more than happy to send out the recipes., just shoot us an email.
