I started working at an Italian restaurant called La Posada about 2 weeks ago and so far so good.It is situated in the Melbourne building in Canberra city on Alinga street opposite the post office. The main attraction is the pizzas which are good thin crust Italian style pizzas. There is a small a la carte menu for those who don't want pizza. The veal scallopini is on potatoes with onion and bacon, rocket, herb aioli, balsamic reduction and olive oil. It is a nice dish which I will write up the recipe for.

A selection of dips with grilled pite. The dips in the photo are roast eggplant, hommus, olive tapenade and beetroot.
The recipes will be up soon. I have a bit of a cold at the moment so it might be a few days or so until I have the energy to do up the recipes. Cheers

So the ones left in the competition are:
Jimmy, who didn't use the advantage he had last night to any great extent and I think he will be very lucky to get further.
Callam. His work can be very good, what it sometimes lakes in presentation, he makes up for in taste, but he does get a bit panicky This might be his downfall.
Claire. She is one of my favorites. She has good focus and usually doesn't let emotion get the better of her. However, cooking is about passion and sometimes you need to show some emotion in it....and Claire found out last night maybe.
Last but not least is Adam. He is my other favorite pick. He produces some great work and has great focus as well.
Well tonight another contestant will go. Unfortunately I wont see it at its televised time as I am going out to dinner for a family birthday. You can bet that when I get home I will watch it on the net though.
I made this at work recently for one of my weekly specials. I adapted it from a recipe from "The Mezzo cookbook" by John Torode, a well known chef in the UK. He was also a guest judge on the Australian masterchef TV programme.
I will soon have the recipe on my web-site www.exlntfood.com
This also gives me the opportunity to experiment with a few flavours. Waht I came up with is oysters with a cucumber, lime and wasabi pickle.
If you didn't already know, wasabi is a green Japanese radish that can easily be bought in a paste or powder. These days in Australia, fresh wasabi can also be found in specialist green grocers and also wasabi oil.
Todays new website recipe is Steak Diane. It seems to be an Australian dish. The main ingredients (besides the steak...lol) are garlic, worcestershire sauce and cream. It's a great combination.
Tell me if you like it!
