Australia’s Best Wines – Where are the Canberra Drops?

Originally posted on The Canberran:
? Canberrans are proud of our local wines. While only Mount Majura actually produces within the ACT border, we are more than happy to claim everything from Yass through to Lake George, it seems that we still can’t crack it with the best across the nation. James Halliday – possibly…

Sydney Cove Oyster Bar – A Review

What a perfect day in Sydney.  Is there anything more iconic and awe inspiring than the Sydney Harbour Bridge on a sunny warm winters day? In July, Devaney and I headed to Sydney for a concert. Not a rock or pop concert, but the Sydney Symphony Orchestra playing the scores to a number of Tim Burton…… Continue reading Sydney Cove Oyster Bar – A Review

Temporada, Canberra City – A Review

This review for Temporada has taken me a month to put up. Why? I’d say it’s due to my complete laziness, and the fact that I’m never out of the kitchen, cooking, long enough to actually write reviews of where I’ve been when out of the kitchen. Temporada was a restaurant that had been on…… Continue reading Temporada, Canberra City – A Review

In My Kitchen – March 2015

Welcome to my kitchen for the month of March. I’ve been quite good this month and haven’t spent too much of my time buying things for my kitchen, more so being gifted fresh produce and baking like a champion. It seems like February/March is a time for figs and carrots. I know carrots aren’t in…… Continue reading In My Kitchen – March 2015

High Fidelity, Phoenix Players – A Review

A Night at the Theater I’ve been given the wonderful opportunity to see a local Canberra musical based on a cult movie that I’ve watched several times. It’s one of those classic movies where you feel a connection with the characters, and even though they’re all terribly flawed, you envy their position in life and…… Continue reading High Fidelity, Phoenix Players – A Review

A long weekend, a fig and port cake and a jar or two.

It was the Australia Day long weekend, and I had it all to myself. SO had taken the kids down the coast for 4 lovely days. I had the house to myself, the remote to myself, the bed to myself and the kitchen to myself. Oh, the quiet, the peace and tranquility, I’ve enjoyed every…… Continue reading A long weekend, a fig and port cake and a jar or two.

Morks, Kingston Foreshore – A Review

This will probably be the worst review you’ve read about Morks. Why? Well, I’d like to think of myself as a true foodie first, and a blogger second, therefore I photographed, ate, enjoyed and gesticulated wildly about the place, and ate some more, drank a fabulous Alsace Pinot Gris, (thanks M, tops choice), yapped and caught up…… Continue reading Morks, Kingston Foreshore – A Review

Christmas Market Challenge? Yes please – A trip to EPIC Farmers Market

I’d heard about this invitation to market from a fellow blogger on a boat. It was an invite for Canberra bloggers to experience the Capital Region Farmers Markets on a personal level. To meet the stall holders, and find out a little more about them other than what was in front of you to purchase.…… Continue reading Christmas Market Challenge?
