Judges' Comments Chefs refer to their kitchen as 'the engine room' and the eatery celebrated in this book is located at 115 Queen Street, Northcote Point, hence the quirky title. It cleverly sets a silver circle, redolent of precise engineering, against a blackboard chalked in a confident hand with a delicious choice of main courses.
