Visit www.biggestmorningtea.com.au My favourite parenting moment is… I work long hours and sometimes it’s hard to balance everything. Whether it is playing at the beach, bath time or reading stories before bed, the time I get with the kids is all very special to me. My most embarrassing parenting moment is… We were sitting in a small restaurant and Sophia needed to go to the toilet and started yelling at some people trying to sit down next to us to go away because she needed “ to go poo”! The funniest thing I remember one of my kids saying is… “Daddy’s got boobies!” I had to explain to Sophia that Mummy has boobies and Daddy has pecs. Food is important because… Not just food, but good food. Fresh ingredients, freshly prepared, do wonders for healthy young bodies and healthy young minds. My favourite meal to cook for the whole family is… It may sound boring, but it’s a good hearty roast with all the trimmings – roast potatoes, sweet potato, roast parsnips and carrots and wonderful sauces and accompaniments. For Australia’s biggest morning tea on May 28, I will be… Drinking lots of tea, serving wonderful biscuits at my restaurant Plan B and contributing to the cause.
