If you enjoyed going on Easter egg hunts as a child then going on a gourmet chocolate tour has got to be the next best thing when you’re an adult! For the last 20 years Chocoholics have run daily chocolate walking tours through Melbourne’s CBD, winding through laneways and arcades to find the artisan chocolatiers […]

HOT: Mork Chocolate Brew House, 150 Errol St, North Melbourne

It’s about time there’s a dedicated place for non-coffee, chocolate drinkers like me. Hooray for Mork Chocolate Brew House, a specialty cafe in North Melbourne brought to us by a Swedish chocolatier and her Australian partner. Mork Chocolate was previously only sold wholesale and you would have seen their cardboard canisters stocked in cafes and […]

HOT: Hot Chocolate Festival, Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery, 35 Old Healesville Rd, Yarra Glen

This recent icy cold weather is the perfect excuse to indulge in cups of hot chocolate! Throughout August the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery is hosting a Hot Chocolate Festival with 31 limited edition flavours of hot chocolates being served. Every week there will be 8 flavours on rotation and I was invited to try their week 1 […]

HOT: Cacao Lab, Driver Lane, Melbourne

Arguably one of the happy consequences of H&M evicting the previous tenants of GPO is that Cacao Fine Chocolate has been transformed into Cacao Lab in Driver Lane. Cacao Lab, which is down an alleyway from the revamped Strand arcade, is a much bigger space than the previous island stand. It’s pretty hard to miss […]

For Christmas puddings This year RSPCA are doing some fantastic puddings and cakes for Christmas with proceeds going towards helping animals across Victoria.

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 […]

Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Icrecreamery is a new foodie destination in the heart of Yarra Glen. The property’s main attraction is a stylish, shaded building […]

HOT: Tomboy, 356 Smith St, Collingwood

As a person who loves eating food at any time of day, I make no real distinction between ‘breakfast food’ ‘lunch food’ and ‘dinner food’. So I think it’s perfectly fine to eat fish tacos and a huge brownie for breakfast. And you should too if you visit Tomboy! This handsome cafe displays one of […]

HOT: Afternoon tea, Burch and Purchese Sweet Studio, 647 Chapel St, South Yarra

For a pre-Easter treat Gourmet Chick and I cycled down to South Yarra dressed in ladylike garb to partake in an afternoon tea at Burch and Purchese. Though really we should have worn  our Mad Hats as the afternoon was definitely a trip to Wonderland. In the pink and brown confection of a store you will find […]
