    Post #1!
    I'm Kelly and I'm Chef/Owner of a 110 seat fine dining restaurant in rural south east Michigan.

    Worked for the Ritz-Carlton in Dearborn, Mi., Naples, Fla., and Sydney Australia (Now defunct Double Bay property), and The Chaparral Club on the 38th floor of the Adam's Mark Hotel in Dallas, Tx. before opening Evans Street Station here in my hometown.

    I'm a little secluded now and rely on short stints of travel and the net to stay fresh and for new ideas.

    Glad to be aboard.

    Not really dishes, but some great product.

    Oddly enough...Mudbugs! They're also known as Balmain Bugs or Slipper Lobsters. I hadn't seen them till I got there and they're everywhere there. I've been known to whip up a Vegemite Beurre Noir on occassion.

    Wichety grubs...could never really get into that.:eek:

    Wattleseed, paperbark,Yabbies (big ol' crayfish), Spanner Crab, Barramundi, Oysters everywhere, Green lip Mussels...I'm starting to miss Oz:cry:

    Thanks for the welcome!

    Welcome to the show. Yup, Michigan sure is a long, long way from Australia. We have quite a few friends on board from Oz. I am sure they can share their favorite vegimite (sp??) recipes with you.
    Welcome!
