STEFANO Manfredi and Killcare's loss is Avoca's gain. Former Bell's head chef Cameron Cansdell and his new wife, Hayley, have cut the apron strings and flown the nest and set up on the side of the hill above Avoca beach. Bombini means bumble bee in Italian and there is a definite buzz in the air on this former Rojo Rocket site. Cameron's technique, honed at Bell's, is strongly grounded in Italian roots and the food here is just that - classic Italian with a modern twist but relying on honest preparation of beautiful ingredients.
