I was lucky enough to be onboard the YachtPlus boat, Ocean Sapphire, last Monday for a special event with two of Australia’s top celebrity chefs, Gary Mehigan and Adrian Richardson. Gary Mehigan is now a major personality in Australia for his lead role in Masterchef & Adrian Richardson is renowned for his part in Boys Weekend.
It was great to get to know them both – they are so friendly and laid back. I discovered that Adrian is a real meat lover and has written a book called just that – Meat. He’s also a passionate advocate of the provenance of one’s food and the ‘from farm to fork’ philosophy. I had a fantastic time chatting about the benefits of grass-fed versus grain fed meat and ‘from nose to tail’ eating.
Gary & Adrian produced beautiful canapés and a delicious dinner for 20 people, plus Ben Edwards, from The Wine Guide, provided delightful Australian wine to accompany the meal.
So now I’m a real fan.
