Vegetarian gone wild

Yesterday attended the launch for Variety of Chefs 2013. Nine top Australian chefs have given up their time to help raise money for Variety Children's charity. We got to get up and personal with the chefs and devour a selection of amazing canap├ęs. I have been a vegetarian forever. It's been about 20 years since I have eaten meat, chicken or fish. I decided if these chefs could generously give up their time for this amazing cause, I could give up my fussy eating for a few hours.
After feasting on delicacies like duck liver parfait, deep fried quail egg, sand crab cannelloni, salted caramel filled quail eggs and more. My taste buds didn't know what hit them. I'll admit that I enjoyed every bit of it.
 ...until I had the oyster. That slimy, salty lump is not for me.
The highlight was listening to Variety discuss the children they have been helping. They visited a school with the chefs the day before and participated in wheelchair dancing with the children. It brought tears to my eyes.

The other highlight was meeting the charming Adrian Richardson.
The Variety of Chefs 2013 Ball will be on 15 June 2013 at the Brisbane Hilton. This will be a fantastic night out with amazing food guaranteed and helping some beautiful children. Tickets are $250 and can be bought online - here
