Veggie (Zucchini and Eggplant) Tortillas

Last night, on ‘Best in Australia’, Ben O’Donoghue made 2 versions of Vegetable Tortillas.

Now, Ben and I go way back (heh heh). I used to live on Rottnest Island, and he started his career in the bistro there at the pub.

Later, he worked ‘Jessica’s’ in my home City of Perth. I became engaged there. Not to Ben, but he did cook the meal!

Nowadays, I live here in Brisbane, and Ben – well, he followed me here and opened the The Surf Club on Southbank.

He just can’ t stay away.

Sorry Ben, I am older than you. But should you ever want to become a toy boy, just let me know :) xx
