So, as you may or may not know there's this little brand called Electrolux that sponsors this little show called Masterchef Australia which I may or may not be a little bit obsessed with. I oh so randomly liked them on Facebook because of a cool photo and then they had this contest to win a masterclass with the one and only Peter Gilmore.
Who is Peter Gilmore, you might ask. Well. Let me tell you. I had to Google it. No offence to Peter Gilmore or anything but there are a lot of chefs out there and I'm not exactly from Australia! But the second his face popped up in the Wikipedia side box I started to get excited. Could it be? Is it?
He's this guy. He makes magical things out of food that brings Masterchef contestants to tears. He makes crazy culinary creations and basically does things his own way. His foods are comforting and seasonal but so amazingly different and intricate. Oh, to work in his kitchen... But here's the part where I feel like I swallowed a horseshoe and I need to run out and buy a lotto ticket immediately.
I'm one of 10 lucky people who gets to run away to Sydney and be taught by PETER MOTHER-FLIPPING GILMORE. This is seriously one of the most incredible things that has ever happened to me EVER. The one hitch - it's super last minute, the masterclass is this weekend. And for anyone that works in hospitality they know the weekends are when you don't ask for time off. Uhhhhh ohhh. Let's hope that studying under one of Australia's greats for a couple days outweighs being busy, fingers crossed!
Make sure you check out the lovely people at Electrolux if you're in Australia, they're my brand new faves. Along with the Quay Restaurant Youtube Channel (if you're into that sort of thing. I totally am...)
Ok ok, I'm off to the store to buy a powerball ticket and try my luck... I had a dream about winning 80 million so we'll seeee!
