Tasty Conversations

Two contestants from Season 4 of MasterChef Australia are starting to make their mark as celebrity cooks on TV, joining the ranks of other MasterChef Australia’s alumni who became TV cooks like Julie Goodwin, Poh Ling Yeow and Justine Schofield from Season 1 and Adam Liaw from Season 2. Interestingly the winner that year, Andy Allen, is not one of them. However his best mate on the show, Ben Milbourne, has scored his own cooking show, Ben’s Menu, which is currently on air weekdays on Channel 10 at 4pm. I have not blogged about his show previously because I have difficulty getting reception of Channel 10 since winter, so was not able to record/watch it.
Now Audra Morrice has appeared on GEM weekdays with her snippets of a cooking show called Tasty Conversations. Each programme is only about 5 to 10 minutes long with one recipe and as far as I can gather, it is on at about 1:45pm, or thereabout, straight after the midday movie on GEM. I think it started yesterday with the first episode featuring Frangipane Tart. Today it is Laksa.
The only reason I discovered the show was because I was keeping an eye out for The Great British Bake Off on GEM and while going through the EPG guide, saw listing for this programme and timer-recorded it for curiosity factor and not even knowing who or what the show is about. Now really glad I did, haha.

    • What do you mean? I am using the standard font size set by wordpress. You must have set your zoom size on your computer to less than 100%, don’t blame me for it!

    • Hmmm, here we go again, the official site has deleted all the recipe links above. I just did a search and found that all the recipes can now be found here. Geez I wish all these TV shows would keep their recipes at ONE address permanently instead of moving them to a new web address every so often…
