Tomato Pesto Pasta Bake

Happy Friday, world. Today’s post is, my apologies, a very short one I’ve managed to squeeze into this hectic time of the year. I am in between assignments which I’m happily focusing on given that this is almost the last stretch of my Master’s degree and I’ve finally taken myself out of the working life…

Beef Lasagne – My super cheesy version

Good evening world, now here’s a dull Friday for all of us down under with no sight of the sun and a sad excuse for what we would call “almost spring”. Speaking of spring, can we please take a moment to appreciate how quickly yet another year has flown by? We are not just well…

Benares London – A Michelin Major

It’s been a while since I’ve written a proper review of some of my gastronomical escapades, which is completely unacceptable given I’ve actually been on a bunch of delicious adventures in the past few months, from my trip to the UK to exploring Melbourne itself. People keep asking me where I get all of my…

Chicken Handi – Curry that warms the heart

Happy Saturday, everybody! It’s unbelievable how fast every week goes by and here we are – ending up with our two days of solace after a crazy 5 days of work once again. Today’s post is about a delicious curry recipe that doesn’t take any extra effort, any marinade downtime or hours of you standing…

Sault – A dash of Daylesford

Picture this – Fields of fully grown lavender against a golden backdrop of summer sun setting gloriously as the bees mingle continuously within the patches. In the distance you see a beautiful concrete establishment looming over the area, almost as if it’s guarding over this wide stretch of beauty and yet welcoming anyone who would…

Attica by Ben Shewry – An Australian Wonder

Hello world – it’s been forever but I’m back today with a review I’ve been so very excited to write for a while now. Of course, I shan’t bore you with the circumstances which delayed this pursuit but I do urge that you take note of my message for today, which is less about the…

Sepia Sydney – A Martin Benn Creation

Have you ever wondered about the miraculous amount of time you find yourself surrounded with to focus on things that are specifically not on your agenda instead of the one thing that you should be working on? I constantly find myself very enthusiastic to indulge into literally anything in the world only when I have…

The Glass Den

Saturdays in Melbourne have always been about the brunch, the coffee, the walks and the drives. Saturdays in September are even better and a whole different ballgame with the beautiful weather and blooming plants everywhere. I know I’ve spoken in length about the massive brunch culture here before with my post about Kitty Burns. Today’s…

Quay – A Peter Gilmore Experience

Mondays and Tuesdays are always the worst of all days. To brighten up an otherwise dull start of the week, I am about to share one of the best dining experiences I have ever had. Ladies and gents, I speak of none other than Quay by Peter Gilmore, one of Australia’s most celebrated restaurants and…

Philippe – Authentic French Cuisine

Many of us take the greatest pleasure in what we consider to be authentic, an experience that is unknown to us and yet something we crave for because of its history and originality. People from all over the world visit France for various reasons that appeal to them – some for the beauty in one…

Innocent Bystander – your go-to place for a sunny day

Hello all! Today’s exclamation mark comes with a massive sigh of relief as I am almost done with yet another semester and suprisingly not as dead as I usually am after work. You’d think it’s all the coffee, but if you know me at all… – yes it is 100% sugar. Lying in bed after…

Giant Steps – Yarra Valley

Apologies for such a delayed post – I have been absolutely throttled in the midst of work, moving houses, and lumbar pain that makes me feel like I’m two hundred years old. Thank goodness for the winter break from my Master’s classes! Today’s review is about one of Melbourne’s hidden treasures which not many are…
