North East Living Magazine - - Contents - Jeff Zeuschner | EDI­TOR

Af­ter one of the cold­est win­ters on record in many of our re­gional cen­tres, Spring has fi­nally ar­rived, bring­ing with it re­newed en­ergy and ex­cite­ment about the warmer weather to come. It’s the sea­son to be in­spired, em­bark on new projects and spend more time in the great out­doors ex­plor­ing all that’s on of­fer in the beau­ti­ful North East. The re­gion is blessed with some of the most pris­tine and spec­tac­u­lar wa­ter­ways in the coun­try, which not only at­tract hik­ers and fish­ers, but mem­bers of the North East Ca­noe Club who are well pre­pared to tackle the chal­leng­ing white water rapids in our lo­cal rivers. Spring pro­duce is also mak­ing its pres­ence felt on lo­cal menus where chefs in­clud­ing Wodonga’s David Kapay from Miss Amelie, and Ruther­glen’s Si­mon Ark­less from All Saints Es­tate Ter­race Restau­rant, are let­ting the finest in­gre­di­ents speak for them­selves. This month we hear from David Kapay about his amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence in two of the world’s best restau­rants where he honed his skills un­der kitchen ti­tans Jamie Oliver, Gor­don Ram­say and Ja­son Ather­ton. We also head to Myrrhee where wal­nut pro­duc­ers Mike Burston and Carol Kunert know more than most about the chal­lenges of our ex­treme sea­sons, while the his­tory of the Glenrowan re­gion is brought to life through the mem­o­ries of lo­cal leg­end Lin­ton Briggs. We hope this is­sue in­spires you to get out and about, see the re­gion with fresh eyes and make the most of the many jew­els to be found right on our doorstep.
