cafe trend: suspended coffee

Lou Heinrich
One comment

Famous social rights activist Desmond Tutu once said: ‘Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.’ While it’s easy to declare these sentiments on a Facebook status, it can be difficult to integrally act it out. Little bits of good have become…

Friday Foodie: Cinq à sept

Freya Dumas
One comment

  The French are renown for many wonderful things  – Roquefort, champagne, Giselle, Olivier Martinez… I also have a theory that anything sounds better in French. Case in point: ‘voulez vous coucher avec moi’ sounds much more seductive and thrilling than the somewhat needy ‘will you sleep with me?’ Just like ‘c’est la vie’ sounds…

a yummy substitute for maccas: chicken rice paper rolls & beef stir fry

One comment

I am a big fan of meals that have more than one course. It lends a sense of occasion to weeknight dinners and makes the host/cook of dinner parties seem very impressive (especially if they sigh happily after taking the first bite – it’s a fabulous ego boost). The problem I encounter when preparing two…

friday foodie: hot cross buns

Freya Dumas
No comments

Easter-time. Chocolate, Cadbury Creme Eggs (they deserve to stand alone). Hot Cross Buns. Those are the three most important things about the day, right? Even if you have other priorities, chances are that a hot buttered Hot Cross Bun is definitely an indulgence you have one or twenty times over Easter. I thought it would…

  Perhaps thanks to the popularity of televisions shows like My Kitchen Rules and MasterChef, and the rising profile of chefs into celebrities, many Australians are now identifying themselves as foodies. The exposure to cooking shows and iconic chefs has made high-end dining no longer daunting, and words like congee, carpaccio, and chantilly have entered…

A couple of months ago I received some rather embarrassing news from my doctor. The results were in from a recent blood test and it showed that that my cholesterol was a little high. My doctor informed me that this was fairly uncommon among people my age and that I needed to get it under…

Sydney, do you GIVVA FORK?

Freya Dumas
No comments

If you live in Sydney and enjoy the eclectic dining scene, but sometimes find it difficult to narrow down what choices you will make (Thai! Polish! Mexican Street! American Diner! Organic Vegan!), why not let your charitable impulses lead your stomach? An initiative called ‘GIVVA FORK’, created by Dominic Greenwood,  has launched in multiple Sydney…

Healthy Bytes: Sugar-free?

Ruby Mahoney
5 comments

Dieting is bad, no duh. Carb-counting and strict food plans tend to end in fatigue, tears and ice-cream, and are not a way to ‘become more healthy’. That said, there’s been a new trend recently to go sugar-free. Not to lose weight, but to improve health and wellbeing. You can find the science of the debate here….

You are by far one of the most gorgeous little cafes I’ve been to in Neutral Bay. Literally on the ferry wharf, your balcony can’t get much closer to the yacht speckled harbour. I felt like I…

Sunday Roast: A Brief History It has been stinking hot in Canberra since December. The kind of weather where you don’t want to move any more than necessary otherwise you’ll break into a slick sweat. My body doesn’t function in heat and I spend most of my time having cold showers and standing in the…

Beach Cafe, Malabar 59 Bay Parade, Malabar 3.0 ‘Basic beachside brekkie’ Hello, Beach Cafe. I hear you’re the rogue twin brother of Pool Cafe. You’re almost identical, but located a little further down the coast and attracting far fewer brekkie questers. Given your menu was similar to Pool’s, I opted for your crispy corn fritters…

a yummy substitute for maccas: kleptoed spaghetti puttanesca

lip magazine
No comments

I absolutely love salty food. I have been known to add salt to everything, even when it really isn’t necessary – margaritas, fish, olives – the list goes on. I remember discovering Puttanesca pasta when I was a teenager and thinking it might be the best pasta ever created. The salty flesh of olives was…
