Talk Eat Drink at Simon Johnson with Lorraine Godsmark from Yellow Bistro

Finished cake ready to be eaten


When this year's programme of Talk Eat Drink was released my friend and I had Lorraine Godsmark on the top of our list.She used to be the pastry chef at Rockpool,once one of the top restaurants in Sydney and now owns her own restaurant,Yellow Bistro and Food Store in Potts Point.
We were even more excited and looking forward to the event after we had tried some of her amazing desserts during a recent visit to Yellow.

Lorraine made 2 desserts and and of course we got to sample both while enjoying some wine from Torbreck winery.We picked up some great tips from the chef about working with chocolate,making better meringues and some advice which makes cooking sound like science.The chef seemed to be let down by the Simon Johnson kitchen but we eventually made it out of there 1 hour later than scheduled but very satisfied.
