IMGP9952

When a friend suggested Cliff’s Edge for our final dinner in LA, I immediately jumped at the chance to go, as it’s a restaurant I had always wanted to go to with Alex when we lived in Echo Park. We arrived and were seated out on the famous patio, which absolutely lives up to its…

Norah, West Hollywood

IMGP9681

Greetings! I just returned from a two week trip back home to America, where I got to spend time with friends and family, and of course stuff myself silly with delicious food at every stop! LA was the last stop on the list, and my amazing college friends flew in from NYC and Chicago for…

Cecconi’s Flinders Lane, Melbourne CBD

IMGP9595

Earlier this month we were lucky enough to dine at Cecconi’s on Flinders Lane, a Melbourne institution. Back in the day, Cecconi’s was the go to spot for corporate long lunches and client-wooing dinners, and today it still retains that old school charm, but is decidedly more romantic. When we arrived, we were seated on…

Miso Roasted Eggplant

IMGP9484

Over Easter, we traveled back to Adelaide to visit Alex’s parents (and raid the veggie patch, of course!) We picked tomatoes, butternut squash, figs, and the most wonderfully sweet eggplants we’ve ever had. We decided to make our version of one of my favourite eggplant dishes- miso eggplant. Our version is full of ginger and chili,…

A few weeks ago I was surprised by Alex with a beautiful belated birthday dinner at Estelle by Scott Pickett. ESP opened last year to rave reviews, occupying half of it’s sister restaurant Estelle Bistro’s previous space. We’ve been wanting to go since it opened, so I was thrilled when we pulled up on High Street…

One of our favourite day or weekend trips is heading down the coast to Mornington. Mornington is full of beautiful beaches and amazing wineries at every turn, and we try and explore new nooks down the Peninsula every time we set out that way. Merricks Creek invited us to come try out their new cellar door,…

IMGP7799

We love visiting Sydney, and always make sure to try a new restaurant while we are up there. Last year we had a lovely long lunch at est., with two of our good friends. The lunch menu at est. is steal relative to the cost of their dinner menu, and you can choose how many…

Lakehouse, Daylesford VIC

IMGP8200

A few months ago, Alex and I celebrated five years together. It’s crazy how quickly half a decade has gone by- there has been plenty of incredible food along the ride! To celebrate, we headed out to Daylesford, which is a beautiful spa town about an hour and a half outside of Melbourne. While Daylesford is…

Jamie Oliver’s Chicken in Milk

IMGP7549

So as you all know, chicken plays a prominent role in our household. While I have finally learnt to love fish, it is less accessible in our neighborhood than chicken, so we find ourselves with the bird more often than not. Sunday Roast is something that I’ve never been able to get fully on board…
