What were your food influences when you were growing up and what kind of food did you eat at home or with your family?
Our family has always been quite a traditional Australian family when it comes to meal times. Sunday nights are always roast night and being a hard workingman, dad often puts in a request for some sort of meat and three veg during the week.
What dish or cuisine do you most like to eat on tour and why?
Unfortunately it’s not always easy to eat what you would like when on tour, as anyone on the go would know. It’s always good to get a healthy meal that doesn’t leave your throat feeling greasy and your stomach bloated. On our rider we always ask for sandwiches and fruit. We absolutely love summer fruits and having that before or after a gig is nice and refreshing!
What type of food do you hate, and what is the most disgusting thing you’ve ever eaten? Tell us the story.
Of course we aren’t big fans of greens.. Particularly broccoli. Holly always used to shove it all in her mouth then pretend she needed to sneeze and spit it into a tissue. The cat found it in the bin one time and ate it. The most disgusting thing we have ever eaten was our fancy pants rider at the exhibition center one time. I couldn’t even tell you what it was, but it was a little too gourmet for us.
What type of food do you make sure to avoid before a gig or going on stage?
Even though it’s a drink, milk. I would never ever drink milk before going on stage, unless I wanted to vomit.
Imagine for a second you can request anything on your rider at a gig. What food do you put on it?
Mangos, any other summer fruits, chocolate, jellybeans, tiny teddies..
What has been your biggest cooking disaster to date? Tell us the story.
Last year Hannah tried to make a Birthday cake for mum. We didn’t have baking powder, so she decided to replace it with Bicarb soda. You can imagine what it tasted like.
When you tour overseas, what food from home do you miss the most?
When we were in London we went to a fish and chip shop and asked for potato cakes. They had no idea what we were on about and suggested peas instead. I guess we would have liked some potato cakes, but apart from that there is too much new food to explore that we didn’t really miss anything from home.
This is your last day on earth, what is your final meal?
Something that includes mango, chocolate and chicken and potato..
