Kate's foodie tour

CHEF to the stars, Kate McAloon spends her time feeding celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Courtney Cox, Miranda Kerr, Orlando Bloom and Steven Spielberg.

Recently, just a few days after an article about chef Kate in the Body and Soul liftout in Sunday's Telegraph, she dropped by for breakfast at Bent on Food and a look around the shop.

Kate was a guest of Sandra Fishwick from Red Plateau Organics and she spent four days touring the region with a visit to Marrook Farm in Elands where she toured their cheese and yoghurt making facility.

She also visited Hand n Hoe Organic Macadamia Farm just out of Wingham, Ricardoes Tomatoes and The Other Chef Fine Foods in Port Macquarie along with a visit to Sandra's organic avocado farm.

Kate shared a wonderful dinner at The Bunker Restaurant at Tallwoods with Donna Carrier, Grahame Nash and Sandra Fishwick.

She also ate at the Harrington Hotel where she loved the staff and the fresh seafood.

During her visit, Kate dropped by the new Bent on Food cookery school where she helped some of the kids peel potatoes for their gnocchi class.

Kate loved the Bent on Life store and bought a Louenhide handbag to take back to Sydney. Kate enjoyed the area and promised to come back soon.
