Thank you FOX TV for inviting The Boston Foodie to the New England premiere of the epic new film AUSTRALIA

Well it was off to the movies this week to take in a premiere of the new sweeping epic AUSTRALIA with Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman. And an epic it is, reminiscent of those old westerns and war movies they just don't make any more.

Nicole Kidman recently mentioned that her favorite spot for weekend brunch is Bills Cafe in Sydney. Seems like a hip spot if you are ever visiting down under.

The cafe is owned by celebrity chef Bill Grainger, known for his inventive cuisine.

Not to be outdone, Hugh Jackman provided Tim Tam candy bars to the entire audience at the Oprah show. Not exactly a free car or a gazillion dollars worth of holiday gifts but these are apparently one of HIS favorite things.

  1. I thought for a moment that you'd packed your New England socks and headed off to the Antipodes! Bill Grainger spends quite a bit of time on UK TV, btw. I'm a big Baz Luhrmann fan - especially his first film Strictly Ballroom. And Romeo + Juliet was very helpful when I was studying for my GCSE English.
