Universal and The Thrifty Kitchen

Christine Manfield of Universal fame last night created an incredible menu in her restaurant pulled from and inspired by my book The Thrifty Kitchen. Meatloaf at Universal? Yes! Check out the menu below.. Thank you Chris, what an incredible evening. Absolutely humbling.

The meatloaf with green beans was nothing like they dreamed up in the '50s. The meatloaf's curry flavours, served with crisp beans in a wasabi dressing made this simple dish truly modern. As Chris herself said last night - she's never served meatloaf at Universal before, she'd be more likely to play Meatloaf. Thanks too to my mums, who let me, encouraged me, to write this book with her.
