Pistachio meringues with summer berries recipe

January 30, 2012


January in Melbourne is always very hot, but thankfully this year we haven’t yet had to endure a whole week full of 40°C+ scorchers! Which is actually quite uncharacteristic of our fair city. Hmm hope I didn’t jinx us with that statement…regardless we have still been clocking up mid 30s for the past few days. […]

Chinese style roast pork recipe

January 25, 2012


Attempting roast pork belly with crispy crackling is not necessarily something you embark on on a whim. It requires planning and should really be reserved for special occasions. Or so I thought…until I discovered how easy roast pork can be. Seriously, people make it out to be a lot harder than it really is. And […]

Andy’s Yum Cha House

January 20, 2012


I’m in two minds about writing this post; I believe in the sharing of good food, but at the same time, I don’t want this venue to be overwhelmed – they’re busy enough on Friday and Saturday nights as it is. Believe me, their rating on Urban Spoon is high enough as it is without […]

Frenchy French toast recipe

January 16, 2012

January 12, 2012


So Christmas and New Year is well and truly over. I hope you had a merry one with your near and dears. But for now, it’s back to reality. A reality that includes struggling to wake up early, miserably trudging back to the daily grind we call work, the disbelief that 2012 has arrived and […]

Eggplant in a spicy coconut gravy recipe

January 9, 2012


You could be easily mistaken into thinking that I’m one of those bloggers who love to eat out, but shies away from the kitchen. I haven’t exactly posted up many recipes, and those I did post were all sweets anyway. In my defense, I do love to cook, I just find it so hard to […]

Myer Mural Hall High Tea

January 8, 2012


If there is something I love more than just eating, it would be an eating event or occasion. Especially if there’s a little bit of glamour thrown in the mix. No doubt the Myer Mural Hall High Tea (Level 6, 314-336 Bourke Street, Melbourne VIC) meets that criteria. Perched on the highest level of the […]
