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…

While doing some general cleanup and organization on my computer this week, I came across a few residual blog posts from 2013 reviewing restaurants that are too good not to share. So I’m going to do a few #throwbackthursday posts in the coming weeks! The first of the bunch is M’s Pub, an Omaha classic….

eataly

Upon finding out that an impromptu NYC trip was in my future, I immediately knew that Eataly had to be a stop on my marathon food tour. The renowned Italian food market came to NYC straight from Italy in 2010, and shows no signs of slowing in popularity. Along with being a food market to…

Liberty Tavern, Omaha

Liberty Tavern is located in the Downtown Omaha Hilton, prime restaurant real estate due to its proximity to the convention center and new stadium. As part of a gift for their 25th wedding anniversary my parents received a dinner at Liberty Tavern, which my brother and I were more than happy to crash. We started…

Truffled Sweet Corn Risotto

Being back home in Nebraska, it would have been criminal to not make a dish starring corn before the summer was over. Corn often gets a bad rap (from myself included) because it frequently comes in a can or a frozen bag, but fresh corn right off the cob sits right up there with one…

Garden Basil Pesto

We have a beautiful basil plant on our back patio, and awhile back I decided to put it to good use and make some fresh pesto. Pesto is super easy, and the amounts can be changed as per preference, but here is what we did: 1 cup fresh basil, washed 1/3 cup EVOO (and then…

Summertime Seared Chicken with Angel Hair Pasta

chicken and pasta

I started the other night with some chicken breasts. I had no idea where I was going from there when I opened up the fridge- my mind went Indian, Greek, Mexican, before finally settling on Italian. This incredibly easy recipe (you basically do all of the work when you make the marinade!) requires the following:…

Tutti Mangia, Claremont CA

Over the weekend Priya graduated from University and as a celebration / farewell dinner (as I am now back in Aus), Priya and I went to Tutti Mangia. Having eaten here once before and enjoying the Osso Bucco I had eaten immensely, expectations were high. Needless to say, Tutti Mangia did not disappoint, however there…

Green Street Cafe, Pasadena

green street

I met up with a cousin awhile ago at Green Street Cafe for Sunday brunch. The restaurant is located along a cute side street in downtown Pasadena, and I was surprised to find parking aplenty. It’s no secret that brunch is my least favourite meal (eggs? bacon? bread? no thank you.) but when a restaurant…
