Hamburger and Hotdog unite to create the Hamdog
A further stumbling block emerged when Murray inexplicably found himself unable to gather the investment he needed to give the Hamdog the global exposure it deserves.
After an unsuccessful 2015 appearance on Shark Attack, the Australian equivalent of Dragon's Den, Murray doggedly pursued his meaty dream and decided to go it alone.
His determination has now paid off as the Hamdoghas now become reality after a successful launch in July.
"Even [Shark Tank judge] Janine Allis told me that it was impossible to patent. She'll be eating her words now," Mr Murray said.
It's over folks, shut it all down. The Hamdog is here. But that is where the parallels with a normal burger end.
The Hamdog is cut straight down the middle into two equal semi circles, allowing the frankfurter to slip neatly between. The bun itself, rather than being circular, is made in a special mould which gives it a distinctive shape akin to a flying saucer or, form some angles, a Viking horned helmet.
The Hamdog's ingredients are local to his native Perth. "The only thing that's not from Western Australia are the pickles," Murray said.
Blue potatoes, once a staple part of British potato crops, are back on the menu thanks to a Cambridge scientist turned organic farmer and Farmdrop, an online marketplace that lets people buy direct from local farms. Cambridge PhD graduate turned farmer, Adrian Izzard has used traditional growing techniques at Wild Country Organics to produce the colourful spuds, packed with healthy cell protecting anthocyanin, which had previously disappeared from UK plates when post war farmers were pushed towards higher yielding varieties
Eating cereal may not be the healthiest way to start the day
The old saying goes that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so many of us do as we are told and grab a bowl of cereal before we head out the door. But an expert has warned that while many cereals boxes claim their contents are the perfect start to the day, many are packed full of sugar and carbohydrates with little nutritional value. Even some seemingly health muesli cereals have a lot of added sugar in the form of honey, malt, molasses, dried fruit or "even fruit juice"
Non alcoholic cocktails are seriously chic
We are living through a new era of creative, non alcoholic drinks that go way beyond a coke or sweet mocktail. The world is becoming more health conscious. There's the war on sugar, and teetotalism is on the rise, with more than one in five not drinking at all (especially young adults), according to The National Statistics for Adult Drinking Habits. This abstinence is even more pronounced in London, with almost one in three turning away from alcohol. An increasing number of mixologists are applying their talents to the creation of non alcoholic drinks that taste as good as their pandora bracelet with charms price boozy alternatives
'Heat map' shows which areas of Britain enjoy the spiciest curries
After Bradford was named the Curry Capital of Britain for the fifth year running, a map has been released showing which regions of Britain enjoy a spicy curry and which prefer the milder variants.

The businessman admitted he was having trouble scaling up his business in order to cater to the mass market. "At the moment there is a fair bit of labour involved in making the buns because they're made by people, not machines, he said. We're still developing a way to semi automate production."
"We launched our marquee two months ago and we had people come from everywhere just to experience the Hamdog. At one stage the crew were knocking out about one every 15 seconds. It was amazing," he said.
Reminiscing about how he first germinated his idea, the entrepreneur told CNBC: "I had the idea on holiday when I was leaving a bar in Nashville. I grabbed a burger and a hot dog as I was really hungry. I was sitting in the car eating them both at the same time and my wife was looking at me like I was an idiot."
