Without a doubt my favourite thing about Melbourne in the summer time is daylight savings. As someone whose winter sunshine consists entirely of office fluorescent lights and the brightness of my computer screen, I use daylight savings to catch up on some much needed Vitamin D. The Brooding Architect and I like to make the {more}

A few Friday nights ago, The Brooding Architect organised a double date with one of our favorite couples – The Botox Babe (to clarify, she injects it and does not receive it) and The Artistic Pharmacist. Because we were so disorganised, we could only get a booking for the fashionably late dinner sitting of 9.30pm. Having {more}

As long time readers will know, The Brooding Architect is my harshest food critic – particularly in  respect to my baking. He comes from a long line of ‘baking purists’ and gets very anxious about my somewhat relaxed attitude towards baking, alleging that my unauthorised recipe modifications often result in ‘rock cakes’. This month’s Delicious {more}

Despite being the end of October, Melbourne is still only teasing us with the prospect of summer. One tantalizing day of 30 degrees and sunshine, followed by yet another cold, grey rainy day, is certainly testing my patience for winter. Fortunately, like 90% of all Melbourne office workers, I am taking a self-declared ‘Extra Long {more}

During our travels, The Brooding Architect and I were lucky enough to spend a week eating our way around the coast and countryside of Normandy (in northern France). The highlights included, but were not limited to: drinking far too much apple themed booze – cider, pommeau and calvados – along the cider route, ‘almost-better-than-sex’ truffle infused Camembert {more}

I am going to try really hard not to bore you with too many details of our recent holidays – but will instead let the photos speak for themselves. Here, in true lawyer-style, numbered list form, are my Top 10 food highlights of Paris: 1. Sunset Picnic under the Eiffel Tower. Fantastic French food and {more}

The Brooding Architect and I landed back in Melbourne last Sunday after a month of travels around France and Croatia. The holiday was outrageously good. Highlights included: Drinking ‘ridicloulsy cheap but good’ rosé with every second meal; Eating our body weight in unpasteurised cheese;  Dancing and eating crepes until 4.00am at a real life ‘Big {more}

Is anyone else completely addicted to French Food Safari? In the lead up to my trip to France I cannot get enough of this show. By the end of each episode my mouth is watering and I have scribbled down a long list of dishes and places I just have to try while on holiday.  {more}

Apart from food, one of my other addictions in life is frocks. New (preferably Leona),  vintage, subtle black or clashing colour prints – I can’t get enough! Much to The Brooding Architect’s dismay, my collection of dresses is always increasing.  It has got to the point that he has had to impose a (poorly enforced) {more}

I have said it before, but this blog is not at all cutting edge. For years, lots and lots of more qualified people* than me have raved and ranted about Hu Tong Dumpling Bar. This would ordinarily stop me from adding yet another review to an already overcrowded space. (*In particular there are some great {more}
