This morning, as the sun rises over the vast Sydney sprawl, I'm sitting snugly in the XPT Train bound for Orange.
The city of Orange, 900 metres above sea level, is situated 250 kilometres west of Sydney in a beautiful part of central New South Wales. The area is renowned for fine agricultural produce, particularly fruit and gourmet foodstuffs. In case you're wondering, Orange is too cool to grow Oranges. It was named after the Government Surveyor Major Mitchell's friend, Prince William of Orange.
I'll be teaching tonight at the Orange Regional Cooking School. I'll keep you posted.
