The Golf Club’s Green Dragon Chinese restaurant has become well known for the quality of Richards cooking. Richard is now a household name on the south coast following a live phone interview with Wollongong’s Wave FM on Saturday afternoon. Wave FM recently ran a competition offering, as the prize, a weekend trip to the outback for 4 listeners and their partners. The tour was organised by Guidepost Tours. Guidepost Tours organised a similar trial run tour last year, which also included Wilcannia and lunch at the Green Dragon restaurant as one of the tour features. This was how word got to Wollongong about Richard and his meals. Morning show presenter Travis Winks, who accompanied the tour, said he had heard from the previous tour group, and in particular Paul the pilot, about Richard and was keen to get him on air to talk about the challenges of producing high quality meals in a remote town. Travis arranged for the station to phone Richard while the group was enjoying lunch. The interview and photos can be found on www.wavefm.com.au. Follow the links to “Outback Adventure”.
