I did a terrible job of photographing Berlin. I have no idea why, but I came back with 10 photos of brunches and train stations. What an oversight! We stayed in hip Friedrichshain, and spent our days in Mitte at The Barn Coffee Roasters and the cute little bakeries of the area, went to a … Continue reading A coffee roasters in a cemetary, Brandenburg duck & German train stations.
My lovely friend Allie of But First, Cake moved into an awesome converted warehouse space in the Old Peanut Factory in Hackney Wick.

I am staying with the loveliest family while I wait to move into my new house in Victoria Park Village – the house is just such a lovely buzzing hive of activity. It’s beautiful in summer, as the house just opens up to the back garden. We were all hanging out, working on our own things … Continue reading A Welsh Cake Tea Party.
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.

We grabbed a chocolate cream filled cronut to power us to make our way back over to the Queen of Tarts for a slab of Guinness cake. … Continue reading The Temple Bar Food Market + Guinness cake.
I was told as soon as I left Australia for my adventure around the world I would have a newfound sense of patriotism. I have always been patriotic about Melbourne (maybe because it is the best place in the world?), but have never really been a flag-toting, sausage eating, Crikey-shouting Aussie. My friends in Melbourne … Continue reading Lamingtons for Australia Day in the Wild West of the USA.
Today we visited Butterfly Wonderland, a new butterfly museum with the largest conservatory in the United States. We watched a 3D movie on butterflies then saw a hatchery where the butterflies were coming out of their chrysalis. Then we head into the enclosure to walk amongst thousands and thousands of butterflies all afternoon. We saw … Continue reading Dancing butterflies + Tiramisu.
The citrus trees in our yard are bursting with fruit. Grapefruits and tangelos are dropping off the branches and littering the lawn like glistening, vivid spheres. Today I decided it was high time to use some of them up in my baking. There is something so lovely about picking citrus from your own trees and … Continue reading Harvesting citrus + baking cookies.
Christmas morning goes pretty much the same every year in the Kingston-Williams household. Wake up, make coffee, grill some ham and cheese croissants, mix up apricot jam, desiccated coconut, 1/2 sour cream 1/2 low fat yoghurt, and chopped crystallised ginger to taste, chop all sorts of fruit to dip into this apricot dip, and consume … Continue reading Pear pastries, apricot + ginger dip, cookbooks + family.
