MEET­ING MARCO

GQ (Australia) - - TASTE TRAVEL -

Next month, Marco Pierre White – the god­fa­ther of mod­ern cui­sine – will rock Western Aus­tralia’s three-day Mar­garet River Gourmet Es­cape. Con­sid­ered by many chefs as the best food fes­ti­val around, the event will also host a bevy of fa­mous food­ies, in­clud­ing Rick Stein, Jock Zon­frillo, Matt Stone and Adri­ano Zumbo. “I come from an era where cook­ing was more Flint­stone than molec­u­lar, and the re­al­ity is much the same for ev­ery­one cook­ing at home too,” ex­plains White. “I al­ways say a man should at­tack the stove like he does the bar­be­cue. Ev­ery sum­mer men turn them­selves into head chef for the day. They have to take the same conf­dence into the kitchen with a pan.” So, what are the key things ev­ery man should be able to cook? Good ques­tion – here are White’s picks, and tips on how to per­fect them. Mar­garet River Gourmet Es­cape runs 20-22 Novem­ber; gourme­tescape.com.au
