Young Gun of Wine Awards

There are loads of wine awards shows these days, but this one is a personal favourite of mine. It’s been going since 2007 and the roll call of previous winners features some of the best names in the business. The name pretty much says it all. You can see the list of previous winners by […]

Lentil, Zucchini and Mint Soup

This is one of several recipes that we have come to love in our house. It’s a perfectly easy and soul-warming winter soup that has only four ingredients, yet a sophisticated flavour that suggests other wise. I’ve used French-style green lentils, grown in the Wimmera region of Victoria. These little beauties originate from those grown […]

Pranzo Classico – A Classic Lunch at Icebergs Dining Room & Bar

Hungover and battling was not how I planned to enjoy my first dining experience at the illustrious Icebergs Dining Room and Bar, but after a school-night salad turned into a booze-filled rampage culminating in reggaeton dancing at Bondi Junction until the wee hours of the next morning, that was the reality of my situation. Nevertheless, […]

Powerfully Subtle: Good One, Bondi

The Bondi restaurant market is a tough one. With the locals’ insatiable demand for brunch and plenty of already existing establishments to match, it’s hard to know whether to give the people what they want (eggs, avo, halloumi and more eggs, please) or buck the trend and offer something alternative. Good One has miraculously found […]

Moroccan Pumpkin Salad

I’m fairly in love with pumpkin right now and this super robust dish really speaks for just how insanely good pumpkins are. The nature of the pumpkin carries spices such as sweet paprika, turmeric and cinnamon so well, not to mention that by adding these culinary spices we add small amounts of valuable nutrients to […]

Gluten-Free Triple Chocolate Brownies: A serious Chocolate Fix for the serious Chocaholic

This recipe is an adaptation of a very delicious, yet very unhealthy chocolate brownie recipe that I came across online recently. To make it healthier I reduced the volume of sugar, swapped the white cane sugar for coconut sugar, changed the wheat flour with gluten-free flour, and substituted the butter with coconut oil – these […]

Asian Made: Randwick’s Hidden Gem

I don’t know about you, but when I head to an Asian restaurant, the last thing I expect to be asked is, “Are you here for lunch or to play the pokies?” Indeed, that’s what we were confronted with as we walked into the reception area of the Randwick Club. There was a faint sound […]
