Finally we had the dinner Roger should have had on his birthday. The meal at Pitchfork Perigian Beach was nothing but superb. I have requested of Roger that he replicate the entree and the dessert for us to add to our menu at home. He’ll do that – he is incredibly talented when it comes to cooking and most of our meals are ones we liked at restaurants that he has gone home and replicated. It must be something to do with taste buds. Mine take in an overall taste – great, nice, okay, not so good, bad. His seem to say tarragon, touch of soy, and he’ll list off the ingredients he can taste. He then goes home and puts it together himself and I’m the lucky recipient.

The reason this has made it into odd ball is because the green persian fairy floss made me immediately think of a person – odd.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.

  1. In the first shot, it looked to me like an oddly colored wig. 🙂

  2. It looks like hair to me. I’m going to take your word for the taste. Oh and I think that is way cool he can decipher different spices etc. I’m more like you.

    At first glimpse I thought it was a rather bad wig! Glad your meal was so enjoyable, especially since Roger is clever enough to replicate it! Hope your retinas have returned to normal!

  6. That is so gross. I have a thing with hair (in my food) and it looks like a bit of colored hair on top of an ice cream cone. Gah!

    I’m not sure if I would eat it, it does look odd though. Thanks for playing Irene.

  8. Great photos. Glad you told me that the green was green floss. It looks like it should be in the movie Frozen.
