The pressure is mounting for business, government, and the public to do more in the battle against ‘fast plastic.’ ‘Fast plastic’ […]

NEW WINES FROM OLD PRODUCERS

Most wineries have wines that they produce every year, or at least in years when the fruit is good enough. Go to Yalumba, for example, and you’ll find a release of ‘The Signature’ each year. These are wines that you can rely on for a decent drink year in, year out. Some of these producers […]

MY MORNING GRANOLA

Every time I make a big batch of granola I package some of it up and pass it onto a friend, neighbour, or family member, or even a client at a meeting (random, but true). It’s always well received because, seriously, who doesn’t love a gift of food? The funny thing is, every time I […]
