Crabb’s happy to stir things up

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY -

PO­LIT­I­CAL com­men­ta­tor Annabel Crabb launches a third se­ries of her in­ter­view se­ries Kitchen Cabi­net in July. The six-parter, re­turns in an elec­tion year, to its new prime-time home on ABC1.

Each week the vet­eran po­lit­i­cal jour­nal­ist in­vites her­self to the home of a sit­ting fed­eral politi­cian, of­fer­ing dessert in ex­change for din­ner.

Guests who ap­pear on the new se­ries in­clude Min­is­ter for Fam­i­lies, Com­mu­nity Ser­vices, In­dige­nous Af­fairs and Dis­abil­ity Re­form Jenny Mack­lin, Op­po­si­tion Com­mu­ni­ca­tions spokesman Mal­colm Turn­bull and his wife Lucy, Shadow Min­is­ter Sus­san Ley with Lib­eral Se­na­tor Bill Hef­fer­nan, Min­is­ter for Ter­tiary Ed­u­ca­tion and Trade Craig Emer­son and In­de­pen­dent Se­na­tor Nick Xenophon.

For­get spin: Kitchen Cabi­net spends time with our po­lit­i­cal lead­ers to bring out the anec­dotes, per­son­al­i­ties and quirks that tend to be lost in fast­paced mod­ern pol­i­tics.

‘‘ Kitchen Cabi­net brings out a side of politi­cians rarely seen be­fore,’’ says Jennifer Collins, ABC en­ter­tain­ment chief. ‘‘Who could ever for­get Joe Hockey’s Bart Simpson du­vet last sea­son?’’

Says Crabb: ‘‘Count­ing vanilla beans as a le­git­i­mate work ex­pense has been a per­sonal ca­reer dream all my life,’’ she says.

‘‘But the best part of Kitchen Cabi­net is be­ing able to leave the crazy bat­tle­ground that pol­i­tics has be­come, sit down with some­one and hear their sto­ries. There are some ab­so­lute crack­ers in se­ries three al­ready, and I can’t wait to share them with ABC1 view­ers.’’
