"The surf is looking rather bleak", continued editor and chef, Luke Kennedy, of Tracks Surfing Magazine. As we over look our local break at Bondi Beach, Luke continues to tell me about this upcoming story he is doing in Byron Bay. ”Sarah, would you be keen to come to Byron and cook for a bunch of surfers?" He asked, "Heck yes," was my reply (of course!)
Once again I had no idea what I was really going to do, but the idea of getting out of Bondi Beach for a few days sounded awesome. I called my friend Kat Parker (who is my photographer and friend) and advised her to get the bikinis and boards ready, we are off to Byron Bay to cook and take photos for Tacks Surf mag woot!
Early in the morning we left Bondi Beach to drive East; long boards in toe we were bound for La Casa Artist for a week of cooking, Coronas and surf adventures.
As we drove into the drive way, Kat and I were flipping out at the location. It didn't matter that we had to share a doggie pull out bed with two boys in the room, we were just stoked to be a part of it all.

The brief was pretty simple – embrace your creative instincts and build, paint and ride four boards in a single week. The end of the week was celebrated with a dinner party, (cooked by me) Tropical Zombie were playing in a front yard gig while the Coronas were flowing. Here’s the extended video from The Tracks Electric Cool Surf Experiment feature out now in the January issue of Track.
Whilst the boys were surfing away, I created tasty treats for all to enjoy. The grand finalise dinner was a Moroccan inspired feast, that incorporated my new favourite recipes, Corona, Turmeric chicken. Just be to on trend...
