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 […]

An American Independence Day in London.

An American Independence Day in London.

As I am not in the USA for the 4th of July, I thought it would be fittingly hilarious to celebrate the 4th here in London – and celebrate the day that America gained independence from the chains of Great Britain – from within Great […]

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 […]

Stroopwafels, poffertjes + naps on the canal.

Last day in Amsterdam. I head out on the bike down to over 100 year old street market, the Albert Cuyp Market, to shoot a Market Focus photoessay for Taste & Travel. While I was there I loaded up on Dutch snacks like freshly made […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]

Lamingtons for Australia Day in the Wild West of the USA.

Lamingtons for Australia Day in the Wild West of the USA.

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 […]

Juniper-crusted bison carpaccio, smoked dark chocolate fudge + coconut green mole.

Last night we had one of the best meals we have eaten in the USA, right here in Phoenix. A few weeks ago when we visited the Desert Botanical Gardens, mum pointed out the restaurant in the gardens and mentioned it had been recently redone […]

Afternoon Tea at the Ritz.

Afternoon Tea at the Ritz.

My nan and I love afternoon tea. In any situation, if there is tea and scones on offer, we are there at the drop of a hat. There is something about getting dressed up in pretty sundresses and drinking coconut oolong out of fine china, […]

Fresh pasta, red velvet cake, syrah + huntin’ shootin’ & fishin’.

Fresh pasta, red velvet cake, syrah + huntin’ shootin’ & fishin’.

Last night I showed my little brother how to make fresh egg pasta by hand. We went a bit crazy kneading the dough, and then rolled it out to make pumpkin, nutmeg and ricotta ravioli. I fried up some fresh sage leaves in a beurre […]

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 […]
