Le Cordon Bleu Australia gastronomy alumni and guests gathered at La Buvette Drinkery in Adelaide’s CBD on Thursday 22nd September for a reunion event celebrating the Australian launch of graduate Alexandra Gregori's book 'Songs on the Wind'. Special guests included renowned Adelaide food writers David Sly and Simon Wilkinson.
Alexandra Gregori graduated with a Le Cordon Bleu Master of Arts (Gastronomy) in 2009. She currently lives in the Philippines. Her book Songs on the Wind is a compilation of essays, articles and poems on eating, drinking, travelling and the lifestyle of one incorrigibly nomadic Australian. The inspiration for the book, her first, began with her gastronomy studies.
Songs on the Wind, to borrow Alexandra’s phrase, is a "halo-halo extraordinaire" - a seemingly unusual choice of stories and ruminations, the resulting blend of which is uncannily "moreish."
