I live close Hobart in Tasmania, a wonderful part of Australia but a little chilly in winter so be sure to book your holiday for summer! I'm self-employed in the embedded electronics area and being at home most of the day gives me plenty of time to prepare those recipes with long preparation and cooking times. As most of my clients are either interstate or overseas I get to occasionally catch up with them and enjoy their local restaurants, always nice to have someone else paying the bills!
As well as food I'm partial to the odd beer & wine, so often like to go to a local pub and catch some local bands. No need for an alarm clock in the morning, my cat Molly likes her breakfast at 8:00AM sharp and makes an effective alarm! Lately I've been starting to get into some digital photography so you might be seeing a few additional recipe shots on Zaar...
I like a wide variety of foods, but like everything to be fresh, never been much of one for frozen foods and pre-made sauces. As I'm seperated I'm normally only cooking for one but personally I think those people that say it's not worthwhile either can't cook or eat less! I also like to carry on the great Aussie BBQ tradition so use the barbecue at every possible opportunity, and even sometimes when it probably wasn't such a good idea.
It's hard to narrow down my food preferences but like just about anything that comes out of the sea (yes even seaweed) so tend to eat a lot of fish and shellfish. I think may favarite cuisines would be Asian and Spanish, anything that's a good excuse to use fresh local produce and that highlights the main ingredients rather than obscuring them. Also like Japanese, Chinese, French, Mexican and Cajun dishes (sorry to all the Italians out there).
Not being a sweet tooth I normally concentrate on the main and either skip dessert or just have a little fruit and yoghurt. The subject of fruit does remind me of one particular class of food that I really enjoy but hardly ever see on restaurant menus - the combination of fruit with meat and seafood. Sure there are the traditional sweet and sour type recipes but I think there is a lot more to be done in the area, maybe it's up to me to do it so check back for what I've come up with!
