A Welsh Cake Tea Party.

A Welsh Cake Tea Party.

I am staying with some very good friends and their daughter 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 […]

A Shoreditch Sunday.

A Shoreditch Sunday.

It’s been a big weekend. I’ve been running myself ragged trying to finish this book, so just needed a few days of fun to reset my jumbled brain. We started on friday with some beers in the park with Banjo. Well, I started 30 minutes […]

Taste of London, Summer.

Taste of London, Summer.

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: […]

A Venezuelan Brunch, beer in a coffee roasters + a microbrewery in our park.

Every time I go into Central London, I have the option to leave the village by bus & tube, or bike. I usually ride. London is a great cycling city. I can get most of the way in along Regents Canal, winding and weaving under […]

A Scone Adventure in Marylebone + barista training at Climpson & Sons.

A Scone Adventure in Marylebone + barista training at Climpson & Sons.

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 […]

Moments in Hackney.

Moments in Hackney.

So it has been the week leading up to my first deliverable for my book. I don’t know if I have written it specifically on the blog, but I’ve been commissioned to write a book on coffee. It’s been killer fun – I’ve visited coffee […]

Dinner by Heston Blumenthal.

Dinner by Heston Blumenthal.

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 […]

A Cockney Flower Market + vintage shopping on Brick Lane.

A Cockney Flower Market + vintage shopping on Brick Lane.

Today was just magical. It was one of our first warm, sunny days of my first London Summer. We head into Dylan’s friends new teahouse in Shoreditch, Hawkhurst Vault, and started the day with oolong, puerh, chocolate + beet and courgette + pistachio cakes over […]

Mackerel + South Australian wine in Bloomsbury.

Mackerel + South Australian wine in Bloomsbury.

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 […]

The Cotswolds.

The Cotswolds.

Husni and I took a trip to the Cotswolds – a beautiful little area of England with gorgeous little villages and meadows – we had afternoon tea and drove down little farm lanes. I don’t have the words for how pretty it all is – […]

A Kinfolk Magazine Gathering: The Spirit of the Sea at Dalston Pier.

A Kinfolk Magazine Gathering: The Spirit of the Sea at Dalston Pier.

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 […]

Broadway Market, a picnic in Victoria Park + Rhubarb Custard Soda.

Broadway Market, a picnic in Victoria Park + Rhubarb Custard Soda.

So, I’ve been busy. I’ve only a short while to enjoy being an East Londoner, so I’ve been cramming my days with cycling, cafes, working on the book, picnics, dancing, drinks, cakes and working at The Deli Downstairs. I absolutely adore working there, with the […]
