Bush, beers and hunks of meat.

Australia day long weekend we all decided to take the opportunity to have a weekend away before 2014 swallows us up. 

For xmas I bought Dan Recipes for a Good Time by the team behind the Porteno & Bodega phenomenon which inspired a desire between Nick and Dan to spend hours by a fire cooking up a storm, talking about nothing and drinking a lot.


Adrian's family live on a sweeping 100 acres of stunning Australian bush typical of the NSW Southern Highlands... so, we took our families, and a variety of dead animal and played with fire (we were fortunate enough that there were no fire bans on that weekend).
