Rick Stein's Australian Odyssey
LifeStyle FOOD identity, presenter and chef Rick Stein is coming to Australia … and this time he’s bringing the kitchen sink. Stein, who lives in Australia for half the year, has often noted that he would like to find a place to cook in Australia and so when Bannisters in Mollymook asked if he’d be interested he jumped at the chance. Rick Stein is due to take control of the kitchen in October. The focus will be on seafood in relaxed seaside surrounds. We can hardly wait!

There will be masterclasses for public and trade, however pre-registration is necessary so check out their website - www.winetasmania.com.au
When vegemite was first put on shelves in Australia it was unnamed, and the company turned to the Australian public to help find a moniker. Kraft have turned to the public again, this time to name a spin off of the Australian icon. The new spread is milder than original, with a cream cheese-type adition that makes it more spreadable.
