THE brains be­hind the win­ning cake at the street party Christ­mas cake bake sale and all-round great chef Kyle Eyres is put on the spot in this week’s Q&A.

WHO would you want to play you in a movie of your life?

Um, I’m not re­ally sure. Some­one who is bet­ter look­ing than me maybe.

What do you think the great­est in­ven­tion has been?

Boats and Bund­aberg rum.

Do you have any lucky items, ob­jects or tra­di­tions?

Well it could be a start of a tra­di­tion, for the last three years I have worn the same chef jacket that won me awards for my best baked ham (two years in a row) and best basked Christ­mas cake (this year).

Is there any­thing you wished would come back into fash­ion?

No, not re­ally.

What three things do you think of most each day?

My dogs, when I can go fish­ing next and work.

What’s been the best de­ci­sion you've made in your life so far?

The best de­ci­sion of my life so far would be tak­ing my job as head chef at the Wind­sor Ho­tel and mak­ing a good rep­u­ta­tion for me and my cook­ing in Dalby town.

What do you love most about where you live?

Dalby is a great lit­tle town to live in, peo­ple are friendly and al­ways say hello in the street. It’s great to see that in a small town.

What was your first car (or what would you like it to be)?

A Mazda BT-50.

What do you con­sider is the most im­por­tant ap­pli­ance in a house?

Prob­a­bly the fridge be­cause it keeps the rum­bos cold.

What his­tor­i­cal pe­riod would you like to live in if you could go back in time?

I would love to live when the pi­rates were around, be­cause drink­ing rum be­fore 10am on a boat makes you a pi­rate, not al­co­holic.
