Gillard can take HEAT, not kitchen
JULIA Gillard may be able to roast an opponent in the parliamentary bear pit, but cooking in a kitchen is a different matter.

‘‘I’m bloody hopeless at it, but I do a good line in toast,’’ she told students at HEAT, a South Melbourne-based initiative that runs cookery courses for young people. ‘‘There have been six-month periods where I lived on toasted sandwiches alone,’’ Ms Gillard said.

Gillard tries hand at chook stuffing
Deputy Prime Minister Julia Gillard might not be a master chef - but she is no chicken.

Julia Gillard visited a hospitality program for disadvantaged youth, which will get a funding boost.
