Last night, I was celebrating the Rose Bowl win with some friends in downtown Austin, when I unexpectedly ran into Cary the Kiwi. I didn’t realize he was in town yet, but Austin beware, he has arrived. I was having drinks at Opal Divine’s when I realized Cary and company were there as well.
Cary is from New Zealand, and comes in every January to work as part of the SXSW staff. When he’s not working at SXSW, he manages bands and music events Down Under but also moonlights as a chef. He’s helped me several times with recipes for dates. As I was leaving last night, Cary told me he had some new recipes for me. I hope to include them on this blog, as I get them.
