A coffee roasters in a cemetary, Brandenburg duck & German train stations.

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 […]

Victorian Sponge Cake in an Old Peanut Factory, Hackney Wick.

Victorian Sponge Cake in an Old Peanut Factory, Hackney Wick.

My lovely friend Allie of But First, Cake moved into an awesome converted warehouse space in the Old Peanut Factory in Hackney Wick. The Wick is a converted industrial area that has been relatively recently taken over by creatives who live in studio/warehouse spaces. We […]

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 […]

The Temple Bar Food Market + Guinness cake.

The Temple Bar Food Market + Guinness cake.

Starting our Saturday with a bang, and a cronut. Up early, we head over to the Temple Bar Food Market and browsed the bright and colourful food stalls. We grabbed a chocolate cream filled cronut to power us to make our way back over to […]

Harvesting citrus + baking cookies.

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 […]

Pear pastries, apricot + ginger dip, cookbooks + family.

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 […]

Francisca’s Empanadas + stories of the early Berkeley Food Collective.

I left the comfort and safety of my home, left behind all the friends that I had forged into family, left behind the town I loved from rooftop to gutter. There is so much for me in Melbourne, but I left because I wanted to […]

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 […]

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 […]

Paella.

Paella.

Edward and I made Paella today. Edward lived in Spain last year, and he asked one of the teachers from the school he worked at to teach him how to make paella. He wrote the recipe down in Spanish, so there was a bit of […]

Fishing for trout.

Fishing for trout.

It’s my last weekend working with Joint Councils Access for All Abilities – it’s the longest I’ve ever stayed at a job (almost 3 years), and it’s the only one I have loved from beginning to end. JCAAA really launched me into my culinary adventures. […]

A Persian Feast.

A Persian Feast.

I’ve been blessed with some incredible friends in Melbourne. What’s more, most of them join me in my passion for good food. They have been more than willing to initiate me into the cuisines of their home countries, by cooking me their favourite dishes, or […]
