Foodie photos from this year

I upgraded my awful Blackberry (yes, I went there) to an iPhone 4S this year. And while I've been lazy about blogging working on some other projects, my foodie pics are turning out much better. Here are some of my tastiest memories captured this year!

Beaut BBQ Corn from the Norfolk Hotel
A little pineapple upside down cake
A lovely tuna with anchovy paste - my talented partner's creation
This was just some scrambled eggs and smoked salmon for a Sunday brekkie
A few of my favourite dishes, pork belly with crackling, sticky rice with Chinese sausage and beans. I saw that the local pub had this dish on the menu - but I have to say, my version's better. ;-)
Prawn congee - the perfect comfort food to nurse a cold

The Masterchef franchise

Last week the partner and I checked out MasterChef Live! Thanks to some free tickets from a friend. It was my first time to see the exhibition and it was miserably wet and rainy.

What I was amazed by was just how easy it was for a multitude and variety of brands that were now able to get MasterChef creds. After 4 seasons of 24 contestants, you just need ONE of the 96 to endorse you and you're suddenly a franchise product.

The show has done some wonders to he industry - but it's not the chef hats establishments that have come out on top. It's the aspiring home cooks looking to recreate an authentic experience from the show.
