Get Summer started with a Greek feast
One of Australia's favourite chefs, George Calombaris, has teamed up with leading homewares brand, Salt&Pepper, to create a brand new cookware collection. Called GREEK, (what else?), it will have you set for summer and beyond.
Inspired by his Greek heritage, George says:
"I WANTED TO DEVELOP A RANGE OF COOKWARE THAT ALLOWED FOR HEALTHY COOKING, SO WE NEEDED TO FIND A SUPERIOR NON-STICK COATING. THE COLLECTION ALSO NEEDED TO HANDLE THE WEAR AND TEAR OF MY KITCHENS - THEY NEEDED TO BE ABLE TO TOUGH IT OUT!"
To try a taste of GREEK for yourself, indulge in this delicious Prawn saganako ouzo Tomato sauce.
