Billy and his new found passion
Roving reporter Ross filed this report from last Sunday:
Sunday dawns and summer is on it’s way. Saturday was the shortest day and Billy spent all the daylight hours and then some, slaving in the kitchen.
Billy has found a new career recently, cooking and baking for friends and family, it must be the extra energy he has from drinking those concoctions from the Bullet. There is even a rumour around that he received a threatening phone call from Rick Stein accusing Billy of muscling in on his turf! Billy challenged Rick to a winner take all cook off for the whole of Mollymook but Rick backed down and was last seen jetting back to the UK with his tail between his legs!
Anyway, I digress, back to the story of his latest creation, a quince and apple crumble, with the fruit sourced fresh from the Blue Mountains, no Woolworths rubbish here. The crumble although very tasty had a more dubious history sourced from places unknown in the back of the pantry. Any way the end result was a superb pie and a great accompaniment to our morning coffee. I feel quite privileged to have had a slice and to all those who missed out… Tough!
I am not sure whether we will see the likes again if Bianca has her way, apparently the kitchen looked like a bomb had gone off with flour and crumbs covering every surface, nook and cranny though out the place and it took her longer to clean up than the seven hours it took Billy to make! Maybe Baker Billy can take up residence in the new commercial kitchen at the surf club and we can just hose it out after every pie. Any way Billy if you are ever allowed to bake again I’ll be there to eat my share.
So Billy I’ve penned a little ditty in your honour. Ross
There once was a Baker called Billy,
Who we thought was a little bit silly,
But when it came to the crunch,
He baked a pie we could munch,
That was ever so tasty… thanks Billy!
