HOT: Fatto a Mano, 228 Gertrude St, Fitzroy

Every year around this time I do a little taste-run of hot cross buns in Melbourne. Ostensibly it’s to provide blog readers with information but really it’s just an excuse to eat a lot of fruity, spicy, sticky bread (I’m a purist – chocolate chips should not be found in hot cross buns!). Sadly this […]

HOT: Sweet Studio Pop Up Store, Careers Australia Building, 196 Flinders Street, Melbourne

‘Sweet studio’. For someone with a huge sweet tooth like me, I don’t think there are words more exciting  (except maybe ‘all you can eat dessert buffet’). UK expats Ian Burch and Darren Purchese specialise in pastries and desserts and they are opening up a dessert only store in South Yarra in April. While that […]

For their newest wine, a Shiraz/Cabernet blend, they invited twelve artists to produce an original piece of art under the theme “Combinations of […]

HOT: Funerals & Food: Inspired by Tradition, Nelson Bros Funeral Services, 81 Kororoit Creek Rd, Williamstown

http://www.melhotornot.com/wp-admin/post.php?action=edit&post=9872&message=10 Funerals & Food: Inspired by Tradition is definitely the winner of Most Intriguing Event during the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival (though technically it’s not part of the festival’s official program). Nelson Bros is Australia’s oldest family owned funeral company and at their historic Williamstown funeral home they hosted an afternoon of panelists exploring […]

HOT: Forgotten Fruits High Tea, Southpaw Bar, 189 Gertrude St, Fitzroy

Another one-off (and sold out) event as part of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, this time the Forgotten Fruits High Tea at Southpaw Bar. It caught my fancy because it sounded like something from Alice in Wonderland! This wasn’t just any high tea, but a high tea full of cakes and pastries made from […]
