We chat to radio man Steve Price about all things food-related ahead of his culinary battle on Celebrity Come Dine With Me Australia.
Who do you see as your biggest competitor on the show?
Myf Warhurst - she is an inner city trendy raised in cafes and pubs listening to music so she must have had to make a mung bean curry at some stage.
Who is your biggest inspiration in the kitchen?
Stephanie Alexander for her bible the Cook's Companion and Jamie Oliver for making preparing food fun and easy.
What’s your favourite cookbook?
As above plus my monthly fix of Gourmet Traveller.
What condiment could you not live without?
Olive Oil for dressings, bread dipping and meat drenching.
Which do you prefer - savoury or sweet?
Savory by a long way I can't cook sweets and am usually too full of meat and wine to eat them.
What would your last meal be?
Sashimi from a Japanese master to start....perfectly cooked and sliced medium rare, Sirloin with a potato gratin and mushrooms and some smelly French cheese to finish.
What is your biggest food indulgence?
Expensive meat and old wine.
What’s your favourite type of cuisine?
Japanese and Italian.
Where’s your favourite place in the world to travel to?
Japan to play golf with friends every year and Europe - especially Italy and France.
What has been your biggest foodie disaster?
A very charred whole snapper left too long on a barbecue due to too much drinking.
