I rarely get surprised. And when I do, I write about it! ;)

Food is my passion but I generally do not express this to every person I meet. On a recent trip to Gladstone (yes, again!) I spent a bit of time with our manager of that area. I don’t know what the reason was but at some point during my meeting with him the conversation turned to food (probably because I started to hear my tummy grumbling as it was close to lunch time and I can’t wait for my dose of Swain’s fish & chips). Amongst all the other food matters we talked about I mentioned to him that I actually have a blog (which is generally about food).

The surprise was Adro (not his real name to protect his “tough” identity) expressed how he’s some kind of a “foodie” as well. Well, they say food is the new porn. So maybe he’s a foodie in that sort of way. Just kidding! I don’t even know what I mean by that statement!

I just couldn’t believe it! This Adro guy that I’m talking about has a built of someone who probably works outside of a nightclub (read: bouncer) rather than inside the kitchen (read: cook). He’s 10 feet tall with a built of a rugby player! Actually, he was a professional rugby player in his younger years! So there you go! What a pleasant surprise it was!

In honour of this I have uploaded photos of his cooking from his favourite food magazine! No, I don’t know the name of the magazine. I also do not know the name of the dishes. Nevertheless, they all look very appetizing! Good on ya Adro!

Here’s the link to Adro’s oft visited food website:
