CherryHill Orchards: cherry picking

There’s so many good things about summer: the long days, the sunshine, the fruit. Oh, the fruit! All of my favourites are in season: mangoes, lychees, blueberries and cherries. The cherry season in Victoria runs from late November to January, and several orchards around Melbourne have the option to pick your own fruit.

Peru: Cusco – Cuy

I felt a bit sad when we left Cusco. We had a flight to the Amazon next – which was of course, very exciting – but somehow because it was a flight, it felt more final than if we had left by bus. Because we’d had a couple of quiet days in Cusco, I had [...]

The weeks in brief: 12 November – 25 November

It has been a fairly big couple of weeks. Even the cats are exhausted.

Chocolate ice cream party

What happens when a bunch of food bloggers get together? Yes – there’s food – but occasionally we get a bright idea: “Let’s have an ice cream tasting party.” “Yes! We could all buy a tub of ice cream and rank them.” “Okay, let’s do it!” And so the ice cream tasting party was born.

Mr Huang Jin

Remember when Melbourne was xiao long bao mad a couple of years ago? That’s one food trend I’m happy to consume.

Peru: Cusco – Inkazuela

After the Inca Trail, Alastair and I were both completely Wrecked. With a capital W. Remember the 3.30am start? We didn’t get back to Cusco until 11pm that night. Longest day ever. We had another day in Cusco after the Trail, and while we probably should’ve used the opportunity to visit the Sacred Valley, the [...]

Gami Chicken and Beer

A life without fried chicken is a life not worth living. It’s true. It’s a shame that fried chicken has been marred by the trashiness of KFC because when it’s done well, it’s a thing of delicious, delicious beauty. At Gami, which I *finally* visited the other week, they serve Korean fried chicken and beer. [...]

Taste of Melbourne 2012: opening night

Disclosure: I attended the opening night event preview courtesy of Taste of Melbourne. Taste of Melbourne is back over the next few days, and tonight I attended a preview of the event with a group of other bloggers. Over several hours, we were shown a little of what’s happening and available this year. The biggest [...]

Peru: Inca Trail – Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu is Peru’s most visited tourist attraction and I won’t lie – it was the reason we went to South America. I knew a little bit about the Inca Trail, and from the little I knew, I thought it would be cool to do. But I deliberately didn’t learn too much about it. I [...]
