I got this recipe from http://www.coles.com.au/. The 2 cities in Australia that hold memories for me are Sydney & Melbourne, in that order.
Though I've been to Sydney only once for about 2 weeks and was there alone, I met someone there who displayed extraordinary grace.
She owns an Asian bakery shop along Quay Street and is my church friend's elder sister. She offered me a buffet of breads & cakes everyday (no time limit) and I had the privilege to have her cook lamb chops for me right from the kitchen in her bakery. She asked her student part-timers in her bakery to bring me around the city & secretly passed them money to host me. When I said that I have never tried ... erm.. what's that donut brand again.. Crispy Kreme! Yes, Crispy Kreme. When I said that I have yet to try that, she bought a dozen for me the next day to choose from. Then she brought me some persimmons to eat in the backpackers' for she said they were very sweet & in season. She also offered to send me on local tours & I declined because I know she would insist on paying for it. She was very kind and giving, everything I wouldn't expect from someone I am meeting for the first time and hopefully, not the only time.
