The Post below by Muhameed. These schemes are on the FBI's most common fraud list. Please delete that post. It is a bad look on a foodie site. There is no bank in the world that trades Bank Guarantees they are collateral security, they are not a commodity.

Gourmet escape. Paul perhaps your not sure of the term gourmet or you don’t understand that when people travel three hours, pay for accommodation and tickets to a dinner they expect something that is perhaps a little above a pub meal. Paul do you really think that slow cooked lamb and a pavlova is anything more than a meal that is prepared most week nights by Australia families. I found the menu uninspiring and lazy, perhaps because you are on television you feel that you don’t need to try and the general public will accept whatever you dish up, well we wont. Try harder, if this is what you think Australia gourmet dinning is you are about 50 years behind the times. How do I get my money back? Or maybe you can come around to my place and I will cook for you at $140 per head. We can have a BBQ and salad.

Have a look at River Cottage Everyday; currently on Lifestyle Food - currently has an episode (ep5?) on Breads and Bread making that explains what to do with your sour dough. It was on today on "River Cottage Everyday". This is where Paul probably got the recipe.

Check out for when it may be back on.
