John Costello makes his Summer Trifle

John Costello

John Costello, who lived and worked in Sydney Radio as an announcer and traffic co-ordinator for many years, made the Sea change to the coast and now really lives and loves the lifestyle. He and his wife, Sue, live right on the beach at One Mile Forster and entertain friends and family extensively over the summer.

This is Johns Dish

John loves to entertain, and of course the summer on the coast suits light and delicious deserts. For his Summer Trifle John takes fresh local seasonal fruit, jelly, cream and custard, and combines it all with a light sponge cake and a dash of your favourite liquor.
