My last day in Wellington, and I knew the breakfast spot I wanted to hit up, Sweet Mother’s Kitchen; serving up New Orleans, Cajun and creole flavours. Little did I realise, it was a public holiday in New Zealand that day, and my destination would be closed.Read More
So let’s start with our first taste of Wellington. In a lovely old bank building, Logan Brown is located in the popular Cuba Street; and has a great variety of local wines and foods to choose from. Shaun Clouston is the head chef and partner at the award winning fine dining restaurant.Read More
It started a bit like this… “Dear Michele, would you like to go to Wellington to eat and drink?” …. errrr…… YES!! OF COURSE!!!
Lots to see and eat, and a great crowd to do it with.
It’s something I’d only imagine I’d do….. hop on a bicycle, and pedal around a gourmet town. Hopping on and off whilst sampling the deliciousness each producer had to offer. So when I was actually offered to do this, there was no hesitation to say yes. The destination; Milawa.Read More
On numerous previous trips down the Mornington Peninusla, I had always driven past the Lindenberry’s sign. Every single time I did not fail to think ‘Oh wow, that place sounds fancy, I HIGHLY doubt I’ll ever get to go and have a look at what it looks like”.Read More
After non-stop eating the day before; a spa day didn’t seem like a bad idea. When I first heard about the hot springs I was interested in seeing what it was all about. It was a blissful experience, which even included some lovely food.Read More
This is Mazey Mike. He has lost his gnomey friends; and you can help find them at Ashcombe Maze & Lavender Gardens. The Great Gnome Hunt is one of the many activities you can enjoy; but not before a trip to the cafe.Read More
Amazing view isn’t it? Just you wait till you see how amazing it looks inside! As promised, the first of many posts from my trip to Peninsula. This was the first stop on my trip, and the first food that entered my belly in a 12 hour non-stop eating tour of the Mornington Peninsula.Read More

Today the delightful Miss A and I went out to Silvan to pick some cherries and other berries. I had read about a cherry picking place in the latest Delicious magazine and thought it might be a fun thing to do whilst enjoying the sunshine. Then a friend on facebook posted some photos of ChappiesRead More
I wasn’t planning on doing a post tonight. I sat down to catch up on Ross Noble’s Australian Trip, and found myself editing and compiling images. Now I’m chilling out, listening to music; so I might as well tell you all about the Healesville markets! With plenty of cuisines on offer; you are bound toRead More
Well folks…. It’s official…… I take far too many photos. The Yarra Valley Market isn’t even that big. In fact I was rather dissapointed when I saw how small it was. I was expecting some huge market. Yet, for the last hour or so, I’ve been editing photos and compiling the images together. I’m dreadingRead More
Yesterday I made my first trip down to the South Melbourne markets with Alana. She had been before and suggested we go potter around there and get the famous “South Melbourne Market Dim Sims” for lunch. Theses guys have been making dim sims for 60 years, and I’ve heard LOADS of people rave on aboutRead More
As many of you will know, earlier this year Victoria was in shock with the mass devastation of the bush fires. Known as Black Saturday, none of us will forget how we felt seeing images and the horror on the news. To follow up from a previous post, I took a drive out to Marysville,Read More
So I thought I’d start showing food I’ve eaten on my travels through life too, since I really should blog more! ANZAC weekend my boyfriend and I went up to the “spa capital of Australia” as they like to call it. Our first stop was the Chocolate Mill. I’m a seriously chocoholic so this wasRead More
