I've neglected this space for far too long; in that time I've had éclairs in Paris, coffee in Amsterdam and an amazing lunch in London. It's been an active couple of weeks; exhausting but in a good way, I wouldn't have it any other way. I'm back now, and just like last year I'm battling [...]

There's a cute paradise of a nut shop in my neighbourhood that sells all manner of tasty nuts and dried fruits, they have these magical saffron and lime roasted cashews that are out-of-this-world delicious, and okra chips so addictive I'm slightly obsessed with them. I noticed they had rose petals the other day so I [...]

September 16 2014

I'd forgotten how much I love this time of the year. I love that stillness in the mornings that wasn't there weeks before and the breezy cool sunny days. It's this time of year too that I start yearning for my favourite 'comfort meals' again; maybe it's the cool evenings or the insight that we're [...]

September 5 2014

From the Whinery Fri Sep 5 2014, 02:45:56

There's something wistful about the start of September. It's filled with subtle changes; the days get shorter and there's a moodiness in the air, the leaves start turning and there's an early morning chill signaling summer's inevitable end. I've always loved this time of year; it feels contemplative as we shift focus from hazy summer [...]

Café sign and abandoned car in the woods We hopped on the ferry and skipped over to the Sunshine Coast a few weekends ago. I love these mini summer pilgrimages to the Sunshine Coast; it's a quick forty-minute ride away but feels like worlds away from the hectic city life. Life here relaxed and charming, [...]

I've probably made about a million variations of rice and beans, it's an easy meal to throw together at a moment's notice, especially if you have some plain rice and beans cooked already. I thought about this spiced rice and beans on a long exhausting ride home on one of those activity-filled unending summer days, [...]

I've probably told the 'marmite story' a million times, of how my sister was anaemic when we were kids and marmite was one of the foods her doctor had recommended. It's the story of how the dark spread came into my life. I don't recall liking marmite that much as a child; my mom would [...]
