Reality TV opens up new career path
LAST year, Paige Rohrlach and
Lauren “Rosie” Rose were part of
My Kitchen Rules, making it
through to the final eight of the
reality television cooking show.
For Paige, the experience
rekindled a desire to change
career paths after working in the
mining industry for 15 years.
That desire became a reality
when she opened Klein’s Kitchen
in Yorketown on Friday.
“Rosie and I both love
cooking but honestly I’d never
watched MKR; she loved the
show so I tell people she made
me do it!” Paige said.
It was a five-month commit-
ment for the South Aussie pair
with the last two months spent
almost entirely in Sydney.
“I had no idea when I said yes
how intense it would be and that
we would end up operating on four
hours sleep most days,” Paige said.
“For the instant restaurant
segments we were into hair and
makeup at 4am, then filming
from 6am through to around
2am the next day, so it was
almost a 24-hour day for those in
the kitchen, and as a guest it was
still a 12 to 13-hour day.
“Challenges were even more
mental by the time you did your
prep, practice and filming — the
best thing was you didn’t have to
do any dishes!
“But having said that it was a
great experience, we met some
really cool people and if I hadn’t
done it I wouldn’t have opened
Paige has opened the
Yorketown cafe with her partner
Darren Mumford, who grew up
on the peninsula.
“After MKR aired, I was read-
ing Gumtree and found an
advert put in by Marko Draco,
who I knew when I worked for
Santos, looking for someone to
help put a cafe together in a
building he owned
Yorketown,” she said.
“It took myself and Darren
just two days to decide to make
the move and, after three months
of hard yakka renovating the for-
mer shop, we were ready to open.
“It’s given me the opportunity
to do something I love, and
Darren the chance to move back
to the peninsula.”
The name Klein’s Kitchen pays
homage to Marko’s great-great-
great-grandfather Gustav Klein,
one of the district’s early settlers
who took up land near Stansbury
in the mid-1800s in an area that
bears his name — Klein Point.
z BACK IN THE KITCHEN... Former My Kitchen Rules contestants
Lauren “Rosie” Rose and Paige Rohrlach were back in the kitchen
together last week, Rosie lending a hand and moral support to Paige
as she opened the doors of Klein’s Kitchen at Yorketown.
AN expo is being planned to help
seniors better understand technology.
Reverend Andrea McDougall said
the idea came from a meeting of the
Yorke Peninsula Mid North Spoke
network, a group dedicated to
improving the health and wellbeing
of people in the region.
“At the last meeting, we had some-
one from NBN explain what it will
mean for people and the timing (of an
expo) will be good with the introduc-
tion of the NBN to the area,” she said.
“It’s an opportunity to allow the
wider community to come along and
find out more.
“It is aimed at seniors and we plan
to share things such as mobile hand-
sets with bigger numbers.
“So many older people are now
using technology to keep in touch
with family so it’s important to show
them their options.
“It doesn’t need to be limited to
seniors but anyone at that beginner’s
level who is getting into IT can
Rev McDougall said there are cur-
rently about four people on the expo
working party who will meet at the
end of this month.
“It might take us a few weeks to get
it organised so we’ll probably hold the
expo in early March,” she said.
Anyone interested in joining the
working party can contact Rev
McDougall on 0448 380 717 or email
