Marcia Georges' Cookbook
I feel very fortunate to have met Andy & Marcia Georges all those years ago. I have been working for them in their home and in their very well-known and respected Brisbane restaurant, IL Centro, for.....I don't know how long. It seems as though it's been many, many years.
Today I was one of a team of people who came together at their home to style a very large number of family-favourite dishes Marcia had tirelessly prepared over the last 2 days which will feature in her upcoming cookbook. We used lots of fabulous heirloom tablecloths, napkins, cutlery and china. The cookbook is going to be full of their family history and the wonderful dishes they have shared throughout their lives.
I will post some more photos tomorrow but here's a sneak peek above.
Oh and if you didn't know, Marcia and Andy are opening a beautiful new bar which will be called Mr & Mrs G on the river in a new building in front of their restaurant in the next couple of months. I have been very lucky to work on the interior of the bar and let me tell you Brisbane you are in for a big treat. It will be something very special.
More pictures tomorrow, I promise!!
