Matt Rodbard and I discuss growing up in Australia and how as a Commonwealth country we took our baking cues from the English, but added a more relaxed, barefoot approach. And yes... we discuss Vegemite.
Next weekend if you are wanting to pretend you are waking up on Bondi Beach, and having a seaside breakfast, you need to go and grab yourself a copy of this month's Rachael Ray Magazine. I've got you covered with an awesome Avocado Toast on Sourdough with crispy prosciutto, roasted tomatoes and feta, babycinno's for the kids' and yes warm cake.
Thanks to the dream team for making it so fun!

I've always loved New York Times columnist and cookbook author Melissa Clark's recipes. It was a great pleasure to sit down and talk about the why I bake, and why I (and you) need to keep it simple. Have a listen on your way to work! Thanks for having me Splendid Table.
I'm thrilled to have Simple Cake on the Food & Wine Best Baking Books You Can Own Right Now List. I'm in the company of many bakers and books I have admired and loved. Helen Goh, Yotam Ottolenghi, Maida Heatter, Mary Berry, Dominque Ansel, Nicole Rucker, Joanne Chang, Donna Hay, Ken Forkish, Yossy Arefi, Dorie Greenspan, Rebecca Firth, Rose Levy Beranbaum, and bakeries Sister Pie, Sullivan Street, Huckleberry, Poilâne, Violet Bakery, and Republique. Thank you so much @foodandwine !
I was boarding a flight from Sydney to New York when I got an email from my agent, saying Simple Cake had made the New York Times Best Spring Cookbooks. Sitting in economy in the middle seat didn't seem too bad for 14 hours after this news. Thank you so much to everyone at the Times. It's a true honor to be recognized and in such fine company.
