Drunken Admiral Shoot
I don’t know about you but I had a fantastic weekend! On Saturday a friend of mine had a few of us over to her place for afternoon tea. It was a beautiful afternoon, complete with sparkling rosé and cucumber sandwiches, a great way to spend a sunny afternoon. Later that night we celebrated a friends 30th at a bar/pizzeria in Fitzroy called Feldmans (named after Corey Feldman!). Great pizza, great music, definitely worth checking out.
On Sunday we had a good friend come and visit from Sydney. We thought we’d get out of the city, and took a road trip out to the Yarra Valley. We stopped at Chandon for a wine tasting, this place is so beautiful! Their wine was so delicious so we bought a couple of bottles before heading on to Healesville for lunch at (the always impressive) Innocent Bystander. It was such a beautiful afternoon. Sharing good food with great friends, the sun was shining and the wine was flowing. I didn’t want to drive back to be honest!
Now not everything in the Adeline & Lumiere kitchen goes to plan. This weekend, as you can see, was very busy. I had intended to make a mandarin marmalade and I did just that, but it didn’t quite turn out as planned. I was in a rush so I didn’t read the recipe properly. Actually I didn’t even really follow the recipe. It all just went downhill from there. It was a disaster, so this week I don’t actually have a recipe – sorry! I do have some photos from a shoot I did a couple of weeks ago. This is the famous Drunken Admiral’s chowder. It’s been on their menu since opening in 1979! Delicious. This is one of the dishes I shot for a book they’re putting together about the history of the restaurant (it is said to be haunted!) and surrounds. As well as a handful of recipes. I took all the shots in the book, and my other half is designing it / putting it all together. It should hit the shelves by Christmas, but I’ll keep you posted on that closer to the date. ; )
How was your weekend? Just as busy or more of a relaxing one?
