Eat like Oprah
Hobby Lane’s apple pies are so good even Oprah’s had them. Okay, so maybe she didn’t eat them at the humble Mitchelton café, but the chef did make her these tasty treats on a yacht somewhere in the Mediterranean (I’m not jealous, you’re jealous). Hobby Lane may present a humble front but don’t be fooled for the owner and chef, Peter Shaw, spent 25 years making dinner for the likes of Naomi Campbell and the royal family. See what all the fuss is about....

The MasterChef Generation
In the land of frozen meals and drive thru’s, when is the last time you stopped to smell a homemade moussaka?
A whole generation of people have grown up eating store bought frozen meals and it has become a norm for many families.

Are you ready for the Masterchef Revolution?
