Sunday Feasts at Mio Locale

Sunday: the day of rest, right?

Long mornings, lazy afternoons, and food. Lots and lots of food. For what is Sunday without a feast? And what’s better than a genuine Italian spread; complete with home-style cooking and friendly faces. Food that just oozes love and soul and laughter (not literally, don’t worry).

You’ll find Mio Locale — Italian for ‘My Local’ — on Brunswick St. in Fitzroy’s North, and if you’re looking for that true, family-style Sunday; this is where you’ll find it. At $45 per head, Mio Locale’s long-awaited Sunday Feasts are a four-course set, themed lunch, held…

West of Kin VIP Winter Menu Launch

When I say ‘Braybrook’, what do you think?

Melbournians: probably industrial warehouses, shipping containers and car yards.
Non-Melbourne people: possibly something relating to a donkey or a river which is honestly what I what was thinking as I tapped it into Google Maps (my brain may be wired differently to most).

Either way, delicious pan Asian cuisine is probably not top of your list — UNTIL NOW. INSERT DRAMATIC MUSIC.

Last week I was lucky enough to score an invite to West of Kin’s Winter menu launch dinner and holy cow, Braybook is now on my radar of tasty things. Sister restaurant…

Hobart Food Styling + Photography Workshop

You know how sometimes things just all line up and work out perfectly? The stars align and everything falls into place?

Dividing my time between Vic and Tas is actually pretty fun — I get to fly around lots, which is less glamourous than it sounds — but it can be tricky to arrange events around jet-setting. Usually when I spot something cool coming up I’m inevitably in the wrong state at the wrong time.

But not this time!

I’ve been a huge fan of Dearna’s food and photography over on her blog To Her Core for a long while now, and…

Trunk Town Garden Drinks in Summer

Do you like gardens? Pretty lights? Eating and drinking in gardens with pretty lights?

(Of course you do, who doesn’t? What a silly question)

If you’re Melbourne-bound and looking for a place fitting the above description — you’re in luck. Trunk just happens to have the biggest Beer Garden in Melbourne, and it’s right in the heart of the CBD. It’s also home of some delicious Mediterranean food and insanely spectacular cocktails, which we happened to discover on our visit there last week.

It’s the kind of place you might head to in the middle of the afternoon for a late lunch……

The Pie Project: momofuku crack pie

Recipe adapted from Momofuku Milkbar

This pie has been on the list for a long time. Even in the days before the project, my Momofuku-loving boyfriend had this recipe flagged for a rainy day. It was actually quite a lovely, sunny Spring day when we decided to finally give it a go last week — but luckily I think crack pie tastes pretty amazeballs in any weather.

It’s a pretty lengthy recipe, but doesn’t actually take that long to complete — you can even make each component separately and combine later if you don’t have the time.

According to this —…
