My Farewell Melbourne Party.

My Farewell Melbourne Party.

My farewell party (and last 24 hours) in Melbourne is something I will remember forever. I was so amazingly lucky to have so many people come together to create such an amazing farewell from my beloved home. Earlier in the day we had all brunched, […]

My last day in Melbourne.

My last day in Melbourne.

Today is my last day in Melbourne. I am flying out tomorrow morning, if not forever then for a very long time. I chose Top Paddock as my last brunch destination. This was the most important decision, I think, as brunch is the most important […]

My time in Melbourne is coming to a close, and Edward left for Tasmania today. We spent one last day in the city together. Biking around Albert Park Lake, we head towards a surprise lunch location. I’d been booked in weeks before, but it wasn’t […]

A day of lasts.

A day of lasts.

Last potato cakes. Last visit to the beach. Last Big M Eggflip from IGA on Fitzroy st St Kilda. Last bike ride down the boardwalk. These are little things that have filled my life in Melbourne. They are so taken for granted until you realize […]

Swedish Roofies, saffron buns + a warm summer night.

Swedish Roofies, saffron buns + a warm summer night.

We were late for Swedish Roofie night. I was meant to bring my food processor over to Stina‘s early so she didn’t have to hand grate bags and bags of potatoes. But Eric spilled the toothpicks all over the floor. He was SO angry. It […]

Someone made me a cake.

Someone made me a cake.

Edward made me a cake today. The first time a man has ever made me something baked. My Nanna said: ‘what a brave man!’. Most people refuse to cook pastry or cakes for me – it’s the curse of the pastrychef. I hate that people […]

In the days leading up to my departure, I’ve tried to live life in Melbourne with as much vitality and energy that I can muster. I’ve filled every day with life, love, laughter, dancing and exploring. Today was a CBD day. Melbourne CBD is full […]

Most photos below are by the beautiful, talented and magnificent Stina. On more than one occasion, my friends and I have commented on the fact that our lives are like a sitcom. We are always at each others houses. We are always eating out. (sorry […]

Making Korean Gimbap + my introduction to SoMac (Soju bombs).

One of my favourite things to do is to cook with friends, and I have been blessed with friends from all around the world in Melbourne. This has the excellent side effect of cooking nights with every cuisine imaginable. A few months back, my Persian […]

An Urban Hāngi.

An Urban Hāngi.

After the failure of our attempts to eat a hāngi in New Zealand, when I saw this on the listing for Good Food Month in Melbourne I jumped on it straight away. I convinced Eric and Juan to come along (well, it didn’t take much […]

Of paint, cider, tutus + wigs.

I saw the ad for the Color Run months ago, and put a call out on facebook for some people to join in. Our team swelled to 12, and there were a stack of other people going, so excitement for the event amplified immensely. We […]

Once there was a Hushpuppy, and she lived with her daddy in the bathtub.

Once there was a Hushpuppy, and she lived with her daddy in the bathtub.

So, a few weeks back Angela mentioned that there was going to be one more Underground Cinema before I left the country. We had always intended on going, so we thought we should get tickets for this one once they were released. Underground Cinema is […]
