The Cook & The Chef - Maggie & Simon

I loved watching the ABC's cooking program The Cook and The Chef.  I've even got it on dvd.  So when we went to the Barossa for the weekend I had to visit Maggie Beer's Farm Shop.

At the end of the shop is a veranda with seats that overlooks the dam, and if you stick your head around there you will find ...

The kitchen set where they filmed The Cook and the Chef.  I can't believe I'm standing in the kitchen!!!!

My husband thinks he's a chef!

The portrait of Maggie & Simon on the wall.

Oh what fun.  The next day, we headed over to  Artisian's of Barossa Cellar Door, where Simon Bryant was cooking for Gourmet weekend..

We had some wine and lunch while we were there.

and guess what?  I met Simon.

He is just so lovely.  He chatted to us for a while.  So friendly and genuine.  If you like Simon as much as I do, check out his website here

Now Maggie, if you're out there, all my daughter asked me to bring home from the Barossa was your autograph, but she is very smitten with Simon's photo!
