Every 3 months Maribyrnong City Council hold free ‘Westside Discovery Tours’ where locals and visitors can discover the hidden secrets of Melbourne’s inner west.

HOT: Instant Expert Moulded Chocolates Class, Ganache Chocolate, 250 Toorak Rd, South Yarra

One of the downsides of writing a blog that’s heavily focused on food is that I often get hungry as I work on the computer. Fortunately for this post I have had a stash of excellent chocolate to sustain me – thanks to a chocolate making class at Ganache, my favourite chocolatier in Melbourne. For […]

HOT: Make your own jams and preserves workshop, Green Renters, Melbourne

I first found out about Melbourne-based not-for-profit organisation Green Renters because I was looking for double-sided door snakes for my freezing house. Huh? You say. Door snakes? You know, those long stuffed fabric lengths your granny used to use to fit under doors to keep warm air in and draughts out. The beauty of a […]

HOT: Spud Heaven – Amazing Tasmanian Potatoes, LG Kitchen Cooking School, South Melbourne Market, Shop 90 Cecil St, South Melbourne

Who knew that there could be more to the humble spud than a white potato? I love potatoes but I’m not knowledgeable about them – I just know that there are some potatoes which are better for roasting and some are better for mashing. So I was excited to receive an invitation from Georgie’s Harvest, a South […]
