There are more and more opportunities opening up for me to cook in Australian regional country centres. Just now I am fine-tuning plans to teach some classes in Alice Springs this mid-December, to be possibly held at CDU (Charles Darwin
As you can see from the map, Alice Springs is situated in the Northern Territory of Australia. Its population of around 30,000 makes it the second-largest settlement in the Territory (the only other towns of significant size are Darwin, the capital, and Katherine).
It is popularly described as 'the Alice' or simply 'Alice'. Alice Springs is known as Mparntwe to its traditional inhabitants, the Arrernte people. Alice Springs is almost equidistant between Darwin and Adelaide.
Is there anyone out there reading this blog who lives in Alice Springs? If so, drop me a line. Maybe you'd like to attend the classes.
