The Donut Burger

In a departure from the normal—with a headlong dive to the realm of what can only be called as Fool's Food—I present to you the storied Donut Burger. My touring crew and I have developed a rite of passage called the "Tokyo Chicken Challenge," which involves various culinary expeditions.

Hugo's Pizza Bar is a trendy supper club in the King's Cross district of Sydney. It specializes in, what else, but pizza. But what impressed me most was not the pizza at all but the fact that it was a world-class seafood restaurant too.

Even though his breakout 2006 debut album is called Food & Liquor, we weren’t sure how big of a food guy Grammy winning rapper Lupe Fiasco was. This all changed when his reps reached out to Food Republic to see if we’d be interested in publishing some of his food writing from his current tour of Australia. Here’s is the first installment of Lupe Fiasco Does Food Down Under Blog.

Even though his breakout 2006 debut album is called Food & Liquor, we weren’t sure how big of a food guy Lupe Fiasco was. This all changed when his reps reached out to Food Republic to see if we’d be interested in publishing some of his culinary writing from an upcoming tour of Australia (April 14-22). We recently hashed out a game plan on the phone—which involves Malaysian chicken, barramundi and the quest to uncover real Aboriginal food.

During our January trip to Melbourne, Australia, we kept hearing the praise of Attica chef Ben Shewry. Not only did his high-minded “back to nature” cooking catch everybody’s attention—including the Pellegrino 50 Best judges—but the guy had the reputation for being the nicest guy.

Neil Perry On His Not Sucky Airplane Food

When acclaimed Australian chef Neil Perry was approached to create the in-flight menu for Qantas Airlines, I can imagine the thought process. First thought: “Cool. Wow. What an honor.” Then: “I bet that pays pretty well. Bonus.” Then: “How the hell do I make tamarind and sesame chicken with egg noodles at 30,000 feet not taste like airplane food?”

Meet Tasmania’s Child Prodigy Master Chef

Fourteen-year-old Jack Lark is the pride of Hobart

In Australia, reality cooking show Master Chef is big. No, Master Chef is massive, airing as many as six nights a week during the season that runs between May and August. There’s a popular magazine dedicated to the show. René Redzepi even got in on the action during the 2011 finale. And it was clear that, like Top Chef in the States, if you do well on the show, your future in the food world is pretty much sealed.

Hobart: Eat, Drink And Go To The Museum

It's all food, all the time, in Tasmania’s capital
Feb 7, 2012 11:01 am

After spending four really packed (fun, exciting, degustation-consuming) days in Melbourne, I can admit that my scheduled visit to Australia’s island state Tasmania was setting up to be a bit of a letdown. The urbane Melbournites sort of rolled their eyes at the mention of Tazzy (as Australians call it).
