Pyrmont Growers' Market: Simon sizzling


Could this boy cook up a storm? Yes siree: he surely could! And he had an attractiveness that was all character. What I believe we refer to as charisma!


It was the way he flipped the beef-patties from the wrist. It was the way he caressed the jet of sauce over the underbelly of the bun. It was the constant stream of slightly-blue patter ... and the grin. And judging by the queues, his hamburgers were crash hot, too!

And may I draw your attention to his logo: he purposefully stripped so that my camera caught his pecs proudly displaying the family farm logo!

Those hamburgers look really tasty! I don't know why I tend to look at food photos when I start to feel hungry.

Sounds like the slightly-blue patter wore off!
Great shots - my mouth is watering!

I can just smell those onions cooking and like the shots of the chef through the sizzle

Really like the last 2 with the smoke. You don't have the blue tinge on these. Must be something to do with the shade on the portraits.

Glad you shared and relayed your appreciation of the young man's artistry. I love the smokey portraits.

I'll second Joan's comment. Making me hungry once again! Love the story behind this one.

Yummy, yummy! You have posted a lot of wonderfully delicious pictures lately. The quiche-tarts looked so damn tasty. I have to stop now, because I'm getting hungry.
