Signature dish: Steak fajitas
Katie's childhood always involved holidays at the beach and many family feasts under the trees over-looking the water. And at Easter time, a whole lamb on the spit was the order of the day. Christmas was glazed ham on the Weber, and every other weekend, whatever would feed a crowd. As long as it was outdoors as everything just tasted so much better. Being the youngest of five Katie has battled to take the BBQ reins from the self-professed experts in her family.
Her gypsy spirit and love of cooking led Katie on a global tour that included working as a chalet girl in Zermat, cooking for the well-heeled of England, a culinary school in New York, yachts in the Caribbean and Mexico and a test kitchen in Boston. There was a catering stint in there too, but that’s another story. Torn between two loves - the great outdoors and cooking up a fabulous al fresco feast (otherwise known as the barbecue!), Katie now knows how to stay at the party, feed everyone, and always be right there at the heart of the gathering with the food.
I'm Australia's Best BBQ'er because: “From the street food of Mexico to the BBQ pits of Texas my travels have opened my eyes to a whole new world of outdoor cooking. It really got me thinking - what about our own Australian barbie? Although nothing beats a good sausage, there are still some simple but exotic surprises you can do on the BBQ. I would love to have the opportunity to share my experiences of life beyond the burnt snag and BBQ with Australia.”... Read more.
Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery.
