After one and a half years, I finally get to see my lovely friend Stina again. Last I saw her was when I left on this adventure, leaving her in a limousine with the rest of my friends at Melbourne Airport. We meet up in Sweden, with a plan to drive out into the countryside … Continue reading A weekend in Stockholm.
We woke up this morning and head straight out to sit in a cute Parisian cafe for breakfast. Coffee, chocolate croissants and baguettes with French butter fueled us for the walk down to Montmartre cemetery, where we were on the hunt for a number of famous boulangeries and patisseries. We wandered in and out of … Continue reading Squid ink baguettes, Jim Morrison’s grave + a dinner picnic under the Eiffel Tower.
This is the third day of our Great Cornish Pasty Adventure. Read about day 1 and day 2. We woke up to a beautiful pink and orange sunrise and went for a walk through the hedges to reach the coast, picking blackberries that stained our fingers crimson. After our walk we head down to the … Continue reading The Great Cornish Pasty Adventure Part 3.
This is the second part of our Great Cornish Pasty Adventure – you can read about the first part here. When we woke up, the mist had set in. I couldn’t imagine a more cliched camping experience on the moors. We could hear cows and sheep through the mist but couldn’t see anything! More pasties … Continue reading The Great Cornish Pasty Adventure Part 2.
Ah. The Great Cornish Pasty Adventure. ‘What?’ I hear you ask. ‘Is this an actual thing?’ You betcha it is! In Arizona they have an awesome, mildly hipster Cornish pasty restaurant. Mildly hilarious given that pasties are kind of considered equal to hot dogs – cheap, filling, and generally a takeaway food eaten from a … Continue reading The Great Cornish Pasty Adventure Part 1.
You might remember how ecstatic I get when Taste of Melbourne, the best food festival EVER comes around. Here is my raving hysteria and video from last years event. The Taste Festivals are held all around the world, and are the same the world over: except each is full of each places local chefs and … Continue reading Taste of London, Summer.
The past few months in London have been lovely, because it has been like a revolving door of friends from Melbourne popping in and out. It’s been ridiculous actually – a lot of my spare time has been spent with friends from back home, whether they have moved here or are just passing through. My … Continue reading A Scone Adventure in Marylebone + barista training at Climpson & Sons.
So, I was meant to be heading back to America tomorrow. But the past three months in London have heralded so many amazing opportunities for my career. A few days before I was scheduled to leave, another opportunity popped up which just seemed to serendipitous to pass up….. more on this in a month or … Continue reading Dinner by Heston Blumenthal.
Husni’s dinner parties are always amazing. We always used to head over to Prahran Market, pick up some amazing ingredients and then go back to his and cook up a feast – our last big dinner party was on Election night, which we soothed tensions with a Beef Wellington and Blood Orange Curd tarts. So … Continue reading Mackerel + South Australian wine in Bloomsbury.
Today was bright. Today was perfect. As a food journo (or I guess a journo in general) I have my one ‘dream’ publication. One that encompasses my philosophies, ideals, design ideas. I want to write for them. I want to work with them. I want to live in the pages of their magazine. That magazine, … Continue reading A Kinfolk Magazine Gathering: The Spirit of the Sea at Dalston Pier.
