The Commoner

Disclosure: Alastair and I dined courtesy of The Commoner. My last visit to The Commoner in Fitzroy was a disgracefully long time ago. It was back in 2009 for a food bloggers’ meet up where the Commoner generously let us use their courtyard and their wood fired oven. How kind is that? Ever since then [...]

No35: MFWF express lunch

The decision to have an express lunch at No35 was the most annoying process ever. It started off innocently with an email from Thanh asking which restaurants we wanted to dine at during the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival (MFWF). After several, several, SEVERAL emails back and forth, we finally settled on a few dates, [...]

The week in brief: 19 March – 25 March

This week: Finally made it to the Duchess of Spotswood, Moa beer, BIRTHDAY LASAGNE, fun with dry ice, going to Temple, and 56 Threads. (Also, the sunrise one morning this week was insane!)

The week in brief: 12 March – 18 March

This week: MFWF express lunches, cocktails, and yum cha.

Embrasse: MFWF express lunch (closed)

Wouldn’t it be good to be able to tap into a collective memory? Then you would always have access to important details, and it wouldn’t be a problem if your mind was crowded with useless things like the lyrics to “Deep deep trouble” even though you haven’t heard that song for 15 years. (Oh, is [...]

The week in brief: 5 March – 11 March

This week: Not just faileo, but a total diet wipeout. I ATE SO MUCH. WAAAAH. Witness!

Australia Unlimited + a competition

Disclosure: I’m not being paid for this post. Nor am I receiving anything. Why am I posting this? Because YOU could win one of two Bill Granger cookbooks! And also because I do sincerely like the idea behind Australia Unlimited. Read to the end for competition details. Also, thanks to Brand Australia and Ogilvy PR [...]
