This week is the first post I get to shoot with my brand new camera, woohoo! Yes, after months of research, saving and ogling I decided it was finally time to purchase my new camera. After seeing the results I’m now wishing I bought it months ago! The images are so clear and makes everything look 1000 times better than my old D90 photos (aww but I still love you D90 – all the things we’ve seen together!). I’m no technical camera geek but this camera is the business. Augh,

Good morning/afternoon everybody! This week, as promised, I have photos to share from the latest food shoot I did for Bishop of Ostia in Brunswick. I think last week I may have made a little mistake and said it was for Pope Joan (the sister restaurant right next door) so my apologies! Luckily for you, I have a bit more information about what’s on offer. Chef Matt Wilkinson has created a delicious “Duck cassoulet of sorts with pressed spiced leg and a Brussels sprout leaves salad“. To compliment these delicious

This weeks recipe is a doozy. I’m really craving ‘comfort food’ now the Melbourne winter is creeping it’s way in. The sort of food you’d see on the menu of a good ol’ fashioned English pub. I do miss some of the London pubs. Two of our favourite in the South West (amongst others) were ‘The Ship’ and ‘The White Hart’, both right on the banks of the Thames. In summer we would sit there all day and bask in the sun whilst sipping on an ice-cold Pimms. All my

On Friday we attended the exhibition Trophy Lives to see Seb’s print (amongst other illustrators) on the wall at the Hungry Workshop. It was also the official opening/warming of the space and boy the place was PACKED! All prints looked amazing as they were beautifully framed by United Measures which are seriously a work of art in themselves. We’ve been meaning to get a few prints framed here but just haven’t got around to it – yet another task on the list of ‘Things to Do’. You can read more

As I’ve said previously, my mum is a wonderful cook. I’ve tried to recreate some of her recipes on the blog (such as her Silverbeet & Feta Lasagne) but recently I’ve created some of my own ‘family favourites’. From what I’ve been told they are ‘phenomenally tasty’…  and yes, that’s quoted! I guess this is what you could call one of my signature dishes. This recipe has been tweaked and perfected every time I make it, and it just seems to get better and better. For me, risotto has been

Lunch: I’ve just rediscovered my obsession with chorizo. I’d first come to love it on a trip to Barcelona many moons ago but it’s one of those ingredients I had somehow managed to forget. It wasn’t until a month or so ago that I had rediscovered these Spanish smallgoods after making Jamie Oliver’s delicious Tomato & Chorizo salad. Whenever possible, I try to cook in-season and as we’re now in the full-swing of an Australian autumn, I thought I’d use some lovely fresh Leeks from the market. I love the

It’s been cold and rainy in Melbourne lately and I’ve been busy with work but have had a hankering for some sort of warming stew. After searching recipes for Beef Bourguignon I noticed the beef is actually marinated in the wine over night but I clearly couldn’t wait that long. So behold, my version of a quick Beef Bourguignon, with what ever was in the kitchen cupboard! I decided to serve it with polenta instead of rice/pasta/potatoes as a nice alternative. I’ve always loved polenta (which Seb has now nicknamed
