2014 - 2016: From 'Into The Blue' to 'This Wheel's On Fire'
2014 was a massive year for Kylie, with a new album and world tour "Kiss Me Once", The Voice UK, the 'INXS Never Tear Us Apart' story (Kylie played by Samantha Jade), The Voice Australia, the release of Nick Cave's "20,000 Days on Earth", "Sleepwalker" EP/film release with Fernando Garibay, and filming of "San Andreas" on the Gold Coast.
2015 saw a more eclectic year for Kylie, debuting with the lead single/video "Right Here, Right Now" with Giorgio Moroder, the re-release of her first 4 PWL albums, and the Australian leg of the 'Kiss Me Once' tour. We have also seen #KylieSummer, a guest appearance on ABC Family's "Young & Hungry", the release of 'San Andreas' & 'Absolutely Anything', a surprise EP with Garibay, the release of 'The Other Boys' with Nervo/Jake Shears/Nile Rodgers, with a joyful finale to the year: 'A Kylie Christmas'.
2016 saw an important milestone for Kylie - 10 years cancer free - and gastrominogue celebrates with 'Langoustine Muhammara with Pickled Apple, Broccolini & Parsley Salad' and a 'Rose & Vanilla Butterfly Cupcake with Plum Jam, Rose Petals and Edible Glitter'.
More recently Kylie & Dannii released a non-Christmas version of their duet "100 Degrees" with a remix package, with Kylie also releasing the "Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie" theme "This Wheel's On Fire". Additionally, filming of a new movie for Kylie 'Swinging Safari' with Guy Pearce, and a new album 'Golden'. See my "Golden Degustation" here.
GASTROMINOGUE SIGNATURE CAKE
MIN-A-MIN BOOMERANG CAKE
Most Aussies would know that one of the indigenous words for boomerang is 'Kylie'. What some might not know is that orange blossom is a type of Murraya (paniculata) - also known as 'Min-a-Min'. This is quite literally a 'Kylie Min-a-Min' Cake. The original Boomerang cake recipe was found in an old Australian cookery book circa 1950's.
