One weekend in Belgium.

One weekend in Belgium.

My life, since the beginning of this year, has taken a turn completely unexpected. An excellent, marvellous, wonderful turn. After the finish of my book, I couldn’t even think about writing. I needed a hiatus. So I started to email a few people about opportunities […]

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

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 […]

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 […]

Heineken Brewery tour, canal boats + Dutch Frites.

After a lovely morning eating cake and wandering the canals of Amsterdam, we head down to the Heineken Brewery. We went all out and bought the VIP tickets – it allowed us access to the exclusive rooftop where we got beer, burgers and a view […]

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 […]

Guinness Brewery, a Pub from the 11th Century, Irish Stew + Boxty Pancakes.

Today we were off the the Guinness Brewery, so a hearty breakfast was in order. We started the day walking the grey sidewalk in the rain until we hit Brother Hubbard, a little cafe inviting those cold, wet souls in from the sidewalk with baked […]

Shepherds Pie, chocolate scones + Irish craft beer.

Shepherds Pie, chocolate scones + Irish craft beer.

Early start today, we rushed off to London Gatwick Airport to catch a quick flight over the pond to Dublin. Husni nabbed an interview at a high profile company in London so he had to stay behind, so Eric and I head over to Ireland […]

London Fields, Afternoon Tea + a meat restaurant in an old, bombed church.

London Fields, Afternoon Tea + a meat restaurant in an old, bombed church.

Soooo I found my new neighbourhood. London is cool, but I hadn’t found anywhere I really wanted to live. Today, I did. A guy in a coffee shop in Bloomsbury had lived in Adelaide for a while, so told us as Melbournians we would probably […]

Toad in the Hole, a damn fine Brunch + Tea at the Tate.

Toad in the Hole, a damn fine Brunch + Tea at the Tate.

There is a distinct chance that I will not survive to the end of this post. I am sitting here in great misery, after consuming a quantity of British food that shocked three fully grown men. My sense of pride did not allow me to […]

The trio reunited, chocolate pancakes + shopping on Portobello Road.

The trio reunited, chocolate pancakes + shopping on Portobello Road.

Flying out of the States today, off to London for an indefinite amount of time. But before I went, Edward, Anthony and I had a plan – he was making us his famous pancake breakfast, choc chip and cinnamon. Edward had brought us some ridiculously […]

My 25th birthday in Wisconsin, cheese curds + an official birthday restaurant.

I arrived in Madison, Wisconsin last night from New York at close to midnight. I had been travelling all day and made it in to my fancy hotel thanks to Visit Madison, and made my way up to my gorgeous big suite. It was lovely […]

My first American sports game.

Breakfast back at the Crepe Bar, we ordered a little too much. We had the chipotle crepe with queso, eggs and bacon, the lemon curd and hibiscus gel crepe, and the nutella and banana brulee.   Let’s go co-yotes! My first American sports game! 6 […]
