HOT: Tea Alchemy, Travelling Samovar, 412 Rathdowne Street, Carlton North

For people (like me) who designate themselves as a tea drinker rather coffee drinker, Travelling Samovar is your one-stop shop for all things tea. So I was intrigued to see that they were hosting an afternoon tea exploring different brewing techniques with matched savoury and sweet treats. And it was one of the rare events […]

HOT: Rickshaw Run, Melbourne Food and Wine Festival 2014, Footscray

I’ll admit that much of this year’s Melbourne Food and Wine Festival passed me by this year as I was caught up with packing up and moving house. I did manage to make it to a few events though and one of the highlights was the Rickshaw Run, an annual sold out event held in […]

HOT: Food Safari Picnic, Melbourne Food and Wine Festival 2014, O’Connell Reserve Richmond and Herring Island

For the next few weeks there will be lots of Melbourne Food and Wine Festival event reviews on the blog. First up is the delightful Food Safari Picnic that happened on the weekend. I was invited as a guest of Yarra City Council and didn’t really know what to expect. And for a first-time go […]

HOT: Smith Street Alimentari, 302 Smith St, Collingwood

It’s just too hot to cook! Fortunately inner north favourites Brunswick Street Alimentari and Gorski and Jones now have a new sibling to add to the Holy Trinity of good food – the food store Smith Street Alimentari. All of the three cafes/restaurants share a few things in common while carving out their own identity. […]

HOT: Gelato Messina, 237 Smith St, Fitzroy

Welcome to Melbourne, Gelato Messina. The famous Sydney gelateria serves gelato that’s been voted the best in Australia by the Good Food Guide and it has just set up its first interstate, and biggest, operation on the inner north’s ever-burgeoning eat street, Smith Street Fitzroy. If the early crowds are anything to go by (especially […]

HOT: Ashkelon Food Store, 321 St Georges Rd, Fitzroy North

I wished my kitchen looked like Ashkelon. The thing that first draws your eye when you enter this single-room cafe/foodstore is the floor-to-ceiling plywood shelves. Each nook is laden with neatly lined and labelled jars of housemade condiments, crinkly packets of granola, pasta and grains and an overflowing hessian-lined basket of organic lemons. The wall […]
