#Macarons


Well known Antique dealers, Moss Green, have opened a tea room on High Street, Armadale. Whether is a quick bite for lunch or high tea, it’s the place to be.


Home made hot cross buns and Easter egg mousse cups.

As well as some Easter treaties you can purchase from around town.


I was lucky enough to be invited to Werribee Mansion again this year as part of the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival. Last year they held an unforgettable 19th century degustation dinner, and this year they hosted a vintage high tea on the balcony of the historic mansion. We arrived to a lovely glass of

If you are on a strict diet, look away…. I was luckily enough to be one of the lucky tweeters when the call for people to sample the new desserts from my favourite place in town went out. Along with other passionate foodies, we indulged in the lastest creations from super couple Bernard and Yen

Yup, that’s right. It’s gonna be another macaron post. The only thing different about this one is I didn’t try all the flavours on offer. I only brought home a select few, and thought I’d give the rest a go another time. I know… I’m as shocked as you are. La Belle Miette is tucked

Melbourne’s answer to Adriano Zumbo? I’ve not been to Zumbo in Sydney… YET. But I’ve seen enough to think when Zumbo finally opens in Melbourne he may just have a bit of competition.

No prizes for guessing what’s in this box… Last week I was down at Chadstone shopping centre picking up my Snow Leopard upgrade for my mac, so does anyone expect me not to go to see if Lindt had macaron flavours I haven’t tried? Really? Well, all the flavours I listed that I wanted to

It’s totally a hard job, but someone has to do it. Luckily for you all, I took the liberty to try some more macaron flavours from Lindt, just so you know which ones are the best. OooOoooooo…. look at the pretty colours… I was in the city on Friday night with Rob, previewing the new

Ok, so I’m going to blame it on being half Swiss for being totally obsessed with the opening of Melbourne’s 2nd Lindt Cafe. I mean I only just went to check out the first one in Collins St a mere 3 days ago…. and I couldn’t wait to finish work and get down to Chadstone

So ever since the Taste Festival last year when I sampled a hot chocolate from Lindt, I’ve been dying for them to open. They told me it was going to open in 2009, so the time finally came and the doors have opened! … and apparently a little birdy tells me Chadstone is opening a

Masterchef inspired lots of us to make things we had never made before. A few weeks ago, I attempted the art of macarons. Having just bought the latest edition of the Australian Gourmet Traveller because of it’s gorgeous looking macarons on the front cover, I was keen to give them a go. Although, for some
