The Desert Knowledge Virtual Trade Fair is happening again this thirteenth of July, which enables businesses from major cities to connect with their outback counterparts to showcase new products and concepts. Paula Osborn, the spokesperson for the program stated that, “some of the successes of the 2010 Virtual Trade Fair included businesses working together to create new products as well as gaining new customers and suppliers from around the nation.” Andrew will this year be showcasing his pepperberry oatmeal cookies and the bush tomato relish for his products. The trade fair works by the businesses linking via the internet and using their webcam to stream to a central tasting venue. For more information on this event please contact Paula Osborn, Network Development Officer on (08) 8641 1444, 0418 581 439 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Last night the wine centre was host to the Adelaide University Florey Medical Foundation, with Andrew as Guest Chef for the event. The members present were able to sample delicious native delicacies including prawn skewers with a spicy Tom Yum sauce given in a pipette. This was not the first time Andrew has worked for the foundation, and holds their work in high regard. Last nights event was a thankyou to all their members for their ongoing support.

Mini Chefs and Master Classes
The Tastes of the Outback festival will soon be upon us (1-10 April) and the final program has been released with some further information about Andrew’s involvement in the Mini Chefs and Native Food Master Classes events.
The Hawker and Quorn Area schools will battle each other for the ultimate ‘mini chef’ title on the 7th of April. Kicking off at 11am students will have an hour and a half to put their cooking skills to the test. Andrew, along with the school’s teachers will be looking out for the most innovative and talented youngsters amongst the group…and those giving it their best shot to award the prizes to. It is sure to be a great day for the kids.
After lunch, Andrew will commence a ‘Mini-Master Class’ at 1:30 for the students and teachers to participate in, with some easy to follow and tasty recipes in store for the participants.

Sorrentos Consulting Chef – Regional native ingredients in harmony with island produce
Words Ainsley Campbell
Andrew has been appointed consulting chef for the Sorrentos Restaurant at the Kangaroo Island Seafront Resort, located in Penneshaw. Andrew is incredibly excited to be involved in a place with such excellent produce, “I have been blown away by the amazing diversity of superb produce found on the Island” he says.
A new “Local Food Heroes” menu has been launched and offers holidaymakers and locals alike a superb selection of fresh local seafood including Rock Lobster, King George Whiting and Abalini (succulent farmed baby Abalone), through to South Rock Lamb.
The menu has a distinctly Kangaroo Island feel with dishes showcasing the very best produce available, and also features some fabulous Native Australian Flavours like Muntries, Samphire and Native Currants.
Andrew will be travelling regularly to the Island to cook and conduct special dinners & cooking classes, along with regular staff training at Sorrentos.
