Or a “Pav”. It is a meringue-based dessert topped with whipped cream and fruit that is almost Australia’s national dish. Although New Zealanders would like to claim it was invented in their country first. The dessert was created in honour of the Russian ballerina, Anna Pavlova, when she toured Australia and New Zealand in the […]
It’s a different kind of image this week. I recently downloaded Photofox and had some fun editing photos. This is our son’s first batch of cupcakes. He made it himself with little supervision. He was so proud of them that day and loved sharing them with his father and me. For Debbie’s Six Word Saturday!
Sometime this year a boutique confectioner, Bakedown Cakery, and data visualisation specialists Small Multiples put their heads together to tell the story of multicultural Sydney in a box of chocolates. Using 2016 Census data as inspiration, they explored the relationship between ethnicity, population and taste in an Australian-first collaboration project. It sounded fascinating. And delicious. […]
I was recovering from a cold earlier this month. I had gone into work but discovered my body wasn’t ready to get back to it. Wilting fast, I drove to the doctors and ducked into a Malaysian place for lunch. I ordered and tried not to hack up a lung as I waited for the […]
This story comes from the UK. By now it’s probably done the rounds. But I wanted to collect this one. Lewis Hornby just made life a whole lot easier for seniors living with dementia by taking the time to understand them. The London based student wanted to help his own grandmother who was living with the […]
It was yum! For Debbie’s Six Word Saturday.
There is a small, 40 seat restaurant in Darlinghurst. Opened by two sisters, Carol and Sharon Salloum, the place has delighted Sydney-siders for more than ten years with delicious Syrian food. Called the Almond Bar, the sisters wanted to showcase Middle Eastern cuisine and change perceptions of what it had to offer through their restaurant. […]
It’s a lemon meringue pie! The white top layer is sugared egg whites that covers a tart lemon curd base underneath. This one came with a sprinkle of dried raspberries. My son ordered it a few days ago and proceeded to demolish the sweet white topping before starting on the sour base. I would have […]
I went to an interesting lunch many years ago. It was held at a small local community centre. I took a plate of food and shared it with the people who came. It was the first time I participated and I was a little shy. Known as the Welcome Dinner Project, the lunch was run […]
I cook most nights. When I am tired my go-to meal isn’t bulgogi or sausages, but pasta. I have a lovely Italian friend who has given me one or two recipe tips over the years. And I have appreciated them, and our friendship. The image was taken on our kitchen bench and edited with Hipstamatic. […]
Last year, like countless others around the country, Tasmanian resident Kirsten Singleton took a risk and bought a small business. It was a fast food shop in the working class suburb of Moonah. But this wasn’t going to be another hamburger and hot chips joint. This takeaway shop was going to serve up a future to […]
We are waiting for his father to finish work. It’s a Friday night and we’re treating ourselves to a cheap meal out. We’re both in the car outside his workplace, but his father is taking ages to leave the building. I’m bored. He’s bored. I turn to to our son and ask him the first […]
