Thank you to all our guests who nominated us for 'Customer Service Business of the Year 2013'. Your nominations have been received and we are a finalist for the third year in a row in that category.

TASTE GREAT SOUTHERN
Last weekend as part of TASTE Great Southern, we headed off to The Porongurup Wine Festival. Maggie was cooking in the One Wok Wonder and though she didn't win, we had a great time. The highlight was of course meeting Poh. The ingredients all the cooks had to use were Chicken & Olives. The judges were all very complimentary on the Cajun Chicken, Olive, Marron & Tropical Salsa Pizza served with Olive & Garlic Bread. The Pizza Base, Garlic & Olive Bread and Butter were all home made in the Thermomix. Click Here for the recipe
Food Market @ 14 Peels Place
TASTE of the World in Albany took place today on the side walk of Peels Place. Our local chefs were busy cooking a selection of street food from around the world. Great job Karin Marsland from 14 Peels Place. Look forward to it being bigger next year with many more people taking part.
We love having our guests pose with Heidi before they leave. There is an album on our Facebook page. Pop along and have a look and feel free to tag yourself. This week we had a couple from Switzerland staying with us. They told Becki the history behind 'Teddy Bear '. Did you know that the Teddy Bear was invented in honor of President Theodore Roosevelt? You can read the story here. Its worth a read as it is a very interesting story.
Breakfast @ HideAway ~ New Dish this morning
We love trying new recipes and ideas. Toasted Cabiatta, Spinach, Smoked Ham, Poached Eggs and Hollandaise Sauce.
