ExQueenslander, been in WA since 1979. We built a outdoor kitchen in 2000 and have been the summer cook ever since. Retired in 2006 and was elected to Chief Cook and Bottle Washer by Mrs Macka (Lyn). Love cooking but don't do roasts.. maybe next year.

My favorite family cooking traditions
My Dad was a baker and pastry cook.. fresh bread.. pies.. cream horns, cream buns.. yummy.. I spent 3 years in the game after leaving school.. then went mining..
My cooking triumphs
Well, how many.. be better if I just pasted them here as I do them in the future.. We had lambs fry and bacon last week.. I cooked the bacon.. long strips.. then the lambs fry in the bacon juice.. put both aside and done a onion gravey.. laid the bacon in a over proof dish, liver on top, poured the gravy on top, covered and put in fridge overnight. Heated up next night in hot oven, served with mash spuds, corn cobs, colie and brock.. yummmmmyyyyyyyy. Cracked a few eggs in the leftovers next morning for the best breckky ever.
My cooking tragedies
Yea.. Done a apple and rubbarb crumble.. the crumble sunk, we called it a "Upside Down Crumble".. tasted ok.
