Box of Scrolls

November 16, 2013

Cinnamon scrolls. I love them but it can be hard to find a good one these days. Many are dry, lacking in flavour and almost like a boring bread roll with a sprinkling of cinnamon. My recent trip to New York reminded me of my love of a good cinnamon scroll and the lack of […]

Edge of Belgravia knives

November 9, 2013

What kind of knives do you use? What brand? Where are they made? For the last decade, ever since I really got into cooking, I have been a fan of Global knives. I have 16 of them (plus a meat cleaver). Made in Japan from CROMOVA stainless steel which has been designed exclusively for manufacturer […]

Perfection Chocolates & Sweets, Rose Bay

June 16, 2012

For many years my older brother lived in Rose Bay in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney. Whenever he came to visit he would bring me goodies from a little store called Perfection Chocolates & Sweets.

Looma’s, Bankstown

June 9, 2012

I have a confession to make. I love pies. Buttery shortcrust pastry, flaky puff and piping hot meaty filling – what’s not to love? But pies have got a bad rep over the years, some would say unfairly. Pies are like pizza – you can get the downright dirty variety, cheap n cheerful, homemade and […]
