Meeting Matt Moran @ Chadstone

Last Saturday, I had the privilege of meeting Matt Moran whilst he was doing a cooking demonstration at Chadstone Shopping Centre in Melbourne. Matt Moran is no stranger in the Australian culinary world, he owns the award winning ARIA, a prestigious restaurant with locations in Sydney and Brisbane, and is a regular face in the hit reality cooking show, MasterChef Australia. Read more about Matt Moran here.

Matt demonstrated his Mushroom Risotto recipe on Saturday, right in the middle of Chadstone Shopping Centre. Unfortunately they were not allowed to feed us due to some food regulations, etc. Oh well! It SMELT good!

Once again I must apologise for the lack of blogging recipes. Hubby has been home and doing some serious work around the house, particularly the kitchen! He is replacing our old rangehood (the fan hasn't been working for a while) and putting in new cupboards, etc directly above the stove so I haven't really been able to cook anything unless it is prepared 100% in the oven! That's actually a bigger challenge than I thought, since a lot of my cooking involves stir-frying fragrant spices beforehand anyway.

I can't wait to get my kitchen back, it has power tools and wood and equipment all over the place at the moment, but once it's all done it will be AWESOME!

  5. Very cool. I hate to say it but I have never heard of him. I guess I need to look more into international chefs. I hope the kitchen renovations end soon and the kitchen is better than before.
