Photo Credit: https://www.facebook.com/gonativeaus Just around the corner from home in Berwick, a new restaurant emerged just a few months ago. I remember receiving a promotional flyer in my mailbox and thought to myself “I must go and check it out someday”… and that someday somehow just happened recently. I must say I was pleased, it was a decent restaurant and we needed more decent restaurants in the area. I wasn’t completely wow-ed, there is still some room for improvement. Go Native offers native and traditional dishes from different regions around the world including street food from the Philippines, Cambodia and the … Continue reading Go Native Restaurant, Berwick
As a busy mum with two very young kids, some nights I barely manage to put a decent meal together. If we have had a busy day and I have either been out most of the day or had other chores to take care of, or had to do some work on the computer while the kids are napping, or even just needed to have a snooze myself in the afternoon just to stay sane, 5.30pm comes along and I realise the baby needs to be breastfed and bathed – and I still haven’t put dinner on. How am I … Continue reading Ordering Food Delivery Online + $50 Menulog Voucher Giveaway!
Charcuterie Platter for 2 inc Ham Hock Terrine, Fennel and Garlic Salami, Butifarra Negra, Grilled Sour Dough, Pickles, Jam, Cauliflower, Artichoke. I actually blogged about EightyOne restaurant almost 2 years ago (click here to read that blog post) and wasn’t sure if I would come back to the restaurant. I am so glad I did, because the food has improved tremendously and I walked away a really happy (and full) customer last night. Interior and ambience wise, not much has changed. The restaurant itself was still that same intimate, quiet, beautiful place I remembered. The service was still prompt and … Continue reading EightyOne Fine Food & Wine, Berwick
Is writing a review on a restaurant a year later a bit too late? Haha… not if I have recently returned to the restaurant just last week and realised it was exactly a year ago that I started drafting this blog post I never got to finish… Before I get into the content, let me just explain to my readers (if you are still out there) why I have been MIA for a full year. Well, the short version is I went on maternity leave. The long version is, I had my second child, Silver in March 2014 and took … Continue reading O.MY Restaurant in Beaconsfield – Fine Dining and Degustation in the Suburbs
Last night, I was very fortunate to have been invited to an exclusive dinner party hosted by our friends to celebrate a great milestone for his career. When I say exclusive, I am not kidding – it was a full … Continue reading Your Private Chef Experience, Melbourne
A lot of you may have noticed that I am certainly far from being the best at baking / decorating cakes. As a matter of fact, I almost dislike making desserts. Is that weird? I love EATING them, and when I do decide to make desserts I do enjoy how pretty they look, but if I had the choice to spend 2 hours in the kitchen to cook whatever I want… I would not choose to make a dessert. I am most definitely more a savoury cook. That is why I’ve decided that yes, I will go to a Mamma … Continue reading Mamma Bake Cupcake Decorating Class
Over the next 15 weeks, I will be featuring my take on 15 recipes from Jamie Oliver’s “15-Minute Meals” cook book. If you are like me, you love to cook but time is always against you.
