Pistachio meringues with summer berries recipe

January 30, 2012

3

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

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

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 […]

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

4

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 […]
