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 […]

HOT: Thorsten Schmidt event, Denmark House, Level 3, 428 Little Bourke St, Melbourne

New Nordic cuisine is so hot right now. You may know that best restaurant in the world according to San Pellegrino’s World 50 Best Restaurants is Noma, in Copenhagen.

Their cafe and retail store is located in villagey Bay Street and attracts a steady clientele of pastry fanciers and coffee drinkers. By the […]

HOT: Jock’s Ice Cream and Sorbet, 83 Victoria Ave, Albert Park

Given the far-reaching reputation of Jock’s Ice Cream and Sorbet, I was surprised to discover that it occupied such a small space on Victoria Avenue. But the unassuming storefront belies the high quality icecream made daily (by Jock!) offered inside. Anyway, there’s no way you can miss the store, as the heat of summer brings […]
