Chefs performing at the Good Food Theatre included the Dublin born chef and restaurateur Colin Fassnidge, who recently returned to the Australian TV program My Kitchen Rules as a guest judge. Known for his nose to tail cooking philosophy, the outspoken Irishman firmly believes the secret to cooking a great dish is planning and “having a bit of love for the food”.
