Hi Maggie and Simon I would like to compliment you both on your exciting and innovative show that I love to watch and say that you two of the more respected and iconic masters of great Australian cuisine and nary a swear word or abusive bullying comment expressed. Gordon could certainly take a leaf out of your cook book about how one can conduct oneself with gracious warmth, humour and what appears to be very real respect for each other’s skills and abilities. I enjoy your show along with Mark Olives because you all cook with a passion, intelligence and creative flair whilst marrying some pretty diverse ingredients with great Australian cheeses, meats, poultry, seafood vegetables and fruits etc. The biggest compliment that I can say is that you make ones mouth water and nostrils flair with imagined aromas when producing some truly amazing and flavoursome meals and recipes. If you ever need a taste tester I would jump at the opportunity lol. Keep producing these excellent TV shows and wishing you great success in bringing your passion to the people. Kind regards Julie aka Bossyk

Why doesn't Simon have celebrity status as a Celebrity Chef on this site? He is a creative, generous and modest man who surely deserves his own fan club.
