    Wonderful 2 days – great chefs showing wonderful recipes, great panels of speakers – just a load of fun. Wonderful food, wine and weather. However, I would like the recipes from the Miele Showcase Kitchen, especially from Matthew Kemp & Jeremy Strode; Guy Grossi & Maeve O’Meara, and Richard Fox & Paul Mercurio. Couldn’t find them on the Tasting Australia website.
