Takoyaki

April 15, 2015

4

Guess what I lugged back home from the recent Japan trip? A takoyaki pan! A cast iron one at that. This added significant weight to my already too heavy luggage and if not for the very kind lady at the check in desk, I would have been up a pretty penny in overweight luggage charges. […]

Caramel popcorn ice cream

March 31, 2015

3

One of the greatest pleasures of owning an ice cream maker is making up flavour combinations and trying them out. So what do you get when you cross 2 carnival favourites? Caramel popcorn ice cream! MmmmMmmm… I used the ratios of a basic vanilla custard recipe, steeped the milk with popcorn to extract the flavour and […]

8th Nerve Cafe

October 14, 2014

2

My early errands the weekend past took me somewhat unexpectedly to 8th Nerve Cafe (103 Gaffney Street, Coburg). Located opposite the home improvement megaplex, Bunnings, this little local haunt is quite unassuming. If not for the wooden sign and a couple of small tables on the pavement, you could easily miss this place. The interior […]

~15 minute kaya recipe

April 13, 2014

6

The last recipe left me with 4 egg yolks to find a use for, and what better than to make some kaya? If you need to ask what kaya is; you have been deprived a great treasure. Commiserations. Kaya is a South East Asian condiment that is widely referred to as a ‘coconut jam’. However if […]

Conpoy and egg white fried rice (瑤柱蛋白炒飯)

April 8, 2014

3

I’m one of those jerks who usually scoffs at egg white omlettes. If you’re going to eat an egg dish, eat it properly. Egg white omlettes are about as confounding as sugarless lollies. I mean seriously, why bother? So here I am somewhat sheepishly writing about this conpoy and egg white fried rice (瑤柱蛋白炒飯) that […]

Chorizo and potato frittata

April 1, 2014

0

Sausages and potatoes are one of the most classic combinations in the food world, so it shouldn’t surprise you that beyond bangers and mash, there are other way of putting these 2 things together. Chorizo is just about my favourite sausage and I’ve long been a fan of the Spanish tortilla de patata (potato omelette); marry […]

Cobb Lane

January 18, 2014

0

Here I am reviewing a bakery/cafe just after saying I rarely take photos when eating out nowadays…well I do like to contradict myself every so often. Keeps life interesting ;). Anyhow Cobb Lane (13 Anderson Street, Yarraville VIC) has been on my radar for a while so I felt like I needed to write this […]

Avocado, bacon and eggs smash

January 6, 2014

5

Smashed avocado alongside bacon and eggs has pretty much become ubiquitous on brunch menus across Melbourne. It’s not too hard to see why; we’re all trying to pack more greens into our meals and it’s helpful to start the day off on the right foot. But with popularity comes uniformity and we’ve become all too […]

Ginger crème brûlée

I’m feeling sufficiently bad for having only posted once this month. What can I say? Life has a habit of getting in the way. And it’s December; we all know how mad the festive season can get! Anyway I’m finally back to make amends and close the year with this final post. It only seems […]

Crème caramel recipe

September 17, 2013

1

The thing I love most about spring has got to be the fact that there are more daylight hours. It’s so much more pleasant being able to come home with the sun still being out (albeit it is close to setting). It feel like there are more hours to the day and I no longer […]

Canelè recipe

June 4, 2013

4

There is going to be a longer prelude than usual, so bear with me. It was a good friend of mine who introduced me to the canelè. She took me out for dinner at Bistro Vue (430 Little Collins Street, Melbourne VIC) many many moons ago, well before it expanded into the former Vue de […]

Martha Ray’s

Wow, only one post for the month of April. So much for attempting to maintain the blog in my down time. Shame on me! I have been bad. I’ve been hiding a bit, just because it’s not all that convenient to be on crutches and also I feel like people just look at me for […]

Fig, prosciutto and hazelnut salad recipe

March 25, 2013

5

I’ve mentioned previously that I do not have a green thumb at all. It’s a slightly shameful thing to admit for a self claimed food lover I know. I’m hoping to change this at some stage and perhaps dabble in some gardening. But for now, I’ve still got my folks to rely on for the […]

Cheeky Monkey

January 12, 2013

0

It was a carefully planned masterstroke of mine to have brunch at Cheeky Monkey (89A Swan Street, Richmond VIC) since it was so conveniently located across the road from the Wittner factory outlet. Is there a better way of convincing a man to come shoe shopping with you than to feed his stomach first? As […]

Zucchini slice recipe

November 22, 2012

0

I attended a hen’s event the past weekend and the activity was an ‘MA’ rated (mature audiences only) high tea. MA because there was a butler and the butler was, cue drum roll…topless. Because every hen needs a bit of eye candy before committing to one man for the rest of her life ;). We […]

Gramercy

Weren’t we Melbournians so blessed with beautiful weather this past weekend? The sun was out and it was actually WARM. How lovely it was to have a nice day during a weekend for once?! In order to make use of that glorious sunshine, I made a trek out to the other side of the town […]

Almond bread recipe

November 8, 2012

This is a rather timely entry given that Spring Carnival is amongst us, which means we are fast hurtling towards the silly season and the end of 2012!  It also means the mad hunt for Christmas presents and small gifts to bring along to all those parties you’re going to get invited to. All this […]

Coriander and chilli scrambled eggs recipe

August 8, 2012

1

It’s Sunday morning and you’re feeling super lazy. Getting dressed to go out feels like a daunting task, but the hunger pangs are getting worse. What to do? My solution is to whip up an easy eggy breakfast for munching on the couch. A friend of a friend grows beautiful coriander in their garden and […]

Happy River Cafe

May 22, 2012

3

The ‘Docklands side’ of Footscray may look quite derelict, but to the visionaries, there is great potential. Perched on top of the Maribrynong river, and though the thousands upon thousands of shipping containers may taint the view a little, this little patch of the world has views of both the flowing river and our fair […]

Chez Dre

March 21, 2012

4

In spite of mastering a favourite brunch dish of mine, a girl still likes to trek out for her morning meal every now and then. This weekend it was back to South Melbourne to finally tick Chez Dre (285-287 Conventry Street, South Melbourne VIC) off my list. Having been open for less than a year, […]
