“A Place to Call Home”

Hubbie and I love watching TV shows. We like different types of shows: some are sitcoms that make us laugh like The Big Bang Theory or Modern Family; others are crime related like Criminal Minds, medical like Grey´s Anatomy, legal like The Good Wife, and so forth. Back in the UK we fell in love with Downton Abbey which we felt was like our soap opera, filled with twists, intrigue, love stories, betrayal and extremely well-directed and created.

But Australians are not far behind in terms of quality. The new TV series, A Place to Call Home, has an excellent cast, great direction and a very intriguing storyline. It shows us Australian society after the Second World War and the strings that still held them close to the British values and the monarchy. The aftermath of the war left scars which are now beginning to heal as the new dawn and a new way of life slowly make their way into the Australia.

Really do recommend it 🙂

I have been a major fan of MasterChef Australia since the beginning! I have even watched the Junior MasterChef 😉

I love the challenges, the master classes, the adrenalin and, most of all, the beautiful food that invades our screen each and every time. Therefore, when I saw the presentation of MasterChef: The Professionals, with Marco Pierre White, I started counting the days for the premiere.

It did not disappoint! I loved the first three episodes, the challenges, and most of all the terrifying yet inspiring Marco. He is my new food crush!!!

Two chefs down, fifteen more to go…
