After four fabulous years of The Cook & the Chef, Maggie Beer and Simon Bryant are saying goodbye and they're going out with a bang! It's a party and Maggie and Simon are doing the cooking!
First up on tonight's party menu, Simon cooks one of his all time favourites, spring rolls, while Maggie makes a deliciously simple baked ricotta with raisins, olives and capers accompanied by spicy cinnamon chicken.
The charcoal BBQ is then fired up to complete the party menu with Maggie cooking succulent pork ribs with a delicious Cabernet sauce. Simon BBQs his irresistible pineapple skewers with palm sugar syrup.
For two days every month over the last four years, the ABC TV crew has arrived and taken over Maggie's kitchen in the Barossa Valley. And for the very last episode of The Cook & the Chef, Maggie and Simon are sharing the experience of what goes on behind-the-scenes, giving the audience a rare insight into just what it takes to put the show together.
But now it's time to party as Maggie and Simon say farewell in their own special way. They will be sadly missed!
