Most memorable meal you've ever had: Right before I was leaving Australia to come to America, we all gathered at a neighbor's house, which has this beautiful back yard in the Australian bush. They had a classic barbecue built into a sandstone rock with a hot plate and fire, and there was plenty of beer and wine, several guitars and didgeridoos for entertainment. We cooked up a seafood bouillabaisse with mussels, squid, prawns and all the fresh fish we'd caught that day, and we barbecued steak, sausages and baby octopus. There were also fresh salads and fruits. We ate, drank and sang into the early hours of the morning.
