WHO AM I ?

I've been eating since 1987.

That's 27 years and counting.

 

There are few fields I have more experience in.

 

I'm about a lot of things; friends, family, love, champagne, good cake, cheese, new food experiences and maximising joy in the everday. xx

Wednesday before last I was at Three Blue Ducks Brisbane with the very cute @markthreeblueducks and a whole heap of fab bloggers. Talk about an epic Wednesday! Three Blue Ducks was just named one of Marriott Bonvoy's top 52 restaurants in the Asia Pacific. To celebrate...

Although BYO is the most popular form of 'gatho' nowadays, there's nothing nicer than supplying a bit of plonk to get the party started.  Trying to cater for everyone is impossible, and can be downright expensive.  With many 'quaffing' wines sitting aroung the $20 a bo...

Got a black banana? Just one?  What are you going to do with it? Most cakes need two, or three! Hell, I have a recipe that calls for four!

On Wednesday evening last week, Dylan and I enjoyed a three-course extravaganza at Heritij Restaurant in Brisbane Quarter.  We had been invited to come along to experience all the restaurant had to offer and were intrigued by the ‘fine dining Indian’ concept.  As we dr...

Apple season is upon us! I was lucky enough to attend a cocktail party celebrating the season’s harvest at Three Blue Ducks in Brisbane Quarter at the end of March. The focus was specifically on JAZZ apples: characteristics, the history, the growers and the green groce...

Chef Mel Alafici runs the vibrant Vanilla Zulu Cooking School in Teneriffe.

I was lucky enough to do a cooking class there in September last year and loved everything about it: you can read about it here.

In late February, a girlfriend and I went along to the launch of M...

This morning I ran out of butter.

Sound the alarm!

I was in the middle of a practice run of Nigella's famous Lemon Pavlova for the weekend. 

Well, it would all come to naught without the curd!!

So I did what any self-respecting foodie would do, and I made it without butter...

We have Maureen Simpson (Cooking at weekends, printed by the ABC in 1992) to thank for this recipe, and also my Mum for introducing me to it.  The re-publishing of this recipe on my blog has been literally years in the making: approximately five times a year I ask Mum...

I love where we live.  Shailer Park – a leafy surburban area 30k south of Brissie with lots of lovely walking trails, good access to shops and all the major highways are merely minutes away.

One thing we’re missing in our suburb, and in lots of Logan suburbs, is walking...

Mel Alafaci is the owner and executive chef at Vanilla Zulu Culinary Adventures in Teneriffe. The name ‘Vanilla Zulu’ pays homage to Mel’s South African heritage: she emigrated from Durban in 2008.  The vibrant cooking school offers twenty (see here) varieties of class...
