Lord of the Fries voucher winners

Thanks to everyone who left comments, poetry and haikus for the Lord of the Fries vouchers. They were so entertaining! I drew the winners randomly today, and coincidentally everyone who won left me a haiku/poem. Mr Potatohead would like to announce the winners: 1: Leaf My little burger It is a beautiful day I shall [...]

Japan: markets

I’ll post the winners of the Lord of the Fries vouchers tomorrow night! This post is merely photos from a couple of markets when we visited Japan in 2009. I forget exactly which ones now, but there was one in Osaka, and one in Kyoto. I quite like seeing the difference between these photos and [...]

Gurney Drive (closed)

One evening on our way home from the CBD, Alastair, Bro and I stopped at Gurney Drive for a quick meal. The restaurant, presumably named after Gurney Drive in Penang, Malaysia, sells Penang Malaysian hawker food. It’s decked out with bright walls, framed pictures, and heavy wooden tables and chairs – oh, and lots of [...]

Universal Restaurant

Disclosure: My meal was courtesy of Food Pampering and Universal Restaurant. Recently I was invited to a lunch at Universal Restaurant by Ashley of Food Pampering, along with a small group of other food bloggers. Located on Lygon Street, Universal Restaurant was established in 1969 – I’m sure that Lygon Street has changed a lot [...]

Lord of the Fries: win a voucher for a Mini Mark Burger

Disclosure: Thanks to Lord of the Fries & Keep Left PR for providing the vouchers, as well as letting me taste test a burger and fries. A haiku love poem to fries: Dear Fries. I love you. Crunchy, salty love. You are Golden perfection. (Right, I’ll stick to eating rather than poet-ing.)

Sticky date pudding

Meal to Share: Pub Food Our fine trio are late for this month’s Meal to Share, because one of us (ahem Penny) has been eating it up in America and Canada. Naturally, Celeste and I don’t mind that Penny was having way too much fun overseas to cook her part of the meal, though I’m [...]

Lemon and blueberry teacakes

Cookbook Challenge 2011: Fortnight 10 Theme: Blue Recipe: Lemon and blueberry teacakes Cookbook: Ottolenghi I made a big order on Amazon over Easter, picking up cookbooks and food books that had been on my wish list for a while. The free shipping and insanely high Australian dollar was just too tempting to pass up! On [...]

UK: Borough Market

To market, to market…. Remember that Alastair and I went to the UK last year in September? No? Well, that’s because it felt like a million years ago! I barely remember it myself!

Provincial Hotel: Porkfest

Pork is very common in Chinese cooking. And when my mum cooks, she puts pork in almost everything. When she’s cooking a vegetable dish she will normally add strips of pork, even when she’s already serving a couple of meat dishes. When making Chinese soups, she normally adds pork meat or bones. It would be [...]

Chocolate and chestnut cake

Chestnuts that refuse to peel are completely infuriating. Chestnut season in Australia starts around late March through to May – in some ways I’m glad that it’s short, because they are a total pain in the arse! They taste good and all, but man they can be annoying little buggers. My last fruit and vege [...]
