Ooohh Mama………epic date and walnut, banana bread, ice cream sandwiches with home-made, cinnamon ice cream and date, caramel sauce

Decadent desserts have been a top priority of mine, pretty much since birth.

Meal in a cone…..…….Almond nut butter, bitter dark chocolate and roasted walnut ice cream & Banana, salted caramel and gingernut ice cream

I am a huge fan of Messina Gelato. Yeah, yeah, who isn’t, move on, you say.

Escape to Byron Bay

I was fortunate to have a weekend away with beautiful girlfriends in Byron Bay over the last few days. Everyone raves about Byron, the food, the beaches, the hinterlands and the warm and kind people. Byron has a way of attracting all the best parts of Australia to one spot, like a mini microclimate of everything I love about Australia.

Grown Up Parties

It was my lovely Father’s 70th birthday on Saturday night. He has lived life to the full, travelling, eating and drinking with friends and family. I was keen to make some of his favourite things for the party. He has a soft spot for a drop of good red wine, smelly cheese, winter fruits and the darkest of chocolate.

Bon voyage mes amis…….Rosemary and lemon melting moments

There has been a lot happening in our world over the last month. We have moved. Not just house but country!

Darling Crispy Zucchini Flowers with Honeycomb and Pistachio Dukkah

I was bursting with excitement this last weekend at our local farmer’s market, Orange Grove.

I am a huge fan of Messina Gelato. Yeah, yeah, who isn’t, move on, you say. Well I will explain why – its Messina’s complexity of flavours that lures me in every time.
