Chow Down to Eurovision Australian National Final - Contestant Two

Our second contestant in the Australian National Final for Chow Down to Eurovision 2015 comes from the United Kingdom.

If the EBU can invite guests from the other side of the world, well so can I!!

Keep Calm and Fanny On is a marvellous blog that showcases the retro culinary trailblazer Fanny Cradock.

Cooking through the Cradock Cookery Programme of 1970-71 there is much anticipation with the way our vegetarian guide navigates us through Fanny's meaty curriculum, usually involving mashed potato and food colour.

If you are unfamiliar with Fanny Cradock I recommend this clip of Fanny instructing us how to lubricate a dry bird....oh matron!

Keep Calm and Fanny On is a must read and just might have an advantage as Fanny Cradock had already participated in a Eurovision Food Contest....the EBU really should bring that back, could I suggest a Chow Down to Eurovision perhaps??


Inspired by Fanny contestant two in the running to represent Australia in the Chow Down to Eurovision 2015 is an amazing Tim Tam and Vegemite Soufflé

Only a Scot could produce the salty sweet delight that was right under our noses, move over salted caramel it's all about the Vegemite Tim Tam!!!

Head over to Keep Calm and Fanny On to be guided through the process of making this innovative dessert and please put your hands together for contestant number two!

What do you think of Fanny's soufflé?
Is this the dish that could win for Australia?
