South Australia’s CWA is 85 years old – and they really know their scones!

Scones, South Australian CWA

It’s Royal Adelaide Show time at the end of the week and if you think herding a gaggle of kids through a show day without  getting covered in vomit, mediating show bag disputes, coping with major melt-downs or losing the odd child is hard work, then spare a thought for the tireless dynamos behind the scenes at that haven of rural hospitality , The CWA Country Cafe.

Cookbook Review – The French Baker

19/06/2015 | By

Master p√Ętissier Jean Michel Raynaud shares his passion, skill and inspiration in his new cookbook The French Baker.

The French Baker (Murdoch Books)

Surprisingly, Sydney-based master p√Ętissier Jean Michel Raynaud grew up in a French home where food was not a particular passion.
