Jamie Oliver

One of the recent visitors to Melbourne, Jamie entertained an audience of gastronomes at one of the local theaters one evening; this according to a couple who attended his show, and came visiting us a week later for a dinner party - quite daunting! However a simple menu with its firm South African foundations proved quite a hit: Fish and Lentil Bobotie (called it a Malay Fish Pie) served with a tomato chutney and an Aussie Semillon Cabernet Sauvignon; Chicken Green Curry ended off with a Fruit Salad of Cantelope (Spanspek) and Kiwi Fruit with Ice Cream.

Jamie also launched his sponsorship of a number of budding chefs in Melbourne, a local programme along the lines of a similar initiative in the UK.
