Koko Black’s new Summer Menu

Koko Black, you devil. You first lured me in years ago, in Melbourne. Your hot chocolates are just so stupidly good. And now? Now you had to introduce the limited-time summer Oasis range, with concoctions like the Salted Caramel Iced Chocolate ($8.50):   The iced chocolate is made to a traditional Belgian...

Hello Fresh review

I’m super lazy when it comes to cooking and what I eat at home. When I’m eating my eggs and toast for dinner I get a big guilt trip: what would my readers think? I have a food blog, doesn’t that mean I’m supposed to be really into cooking proper...

Raw Pawpaw

Lately you can’t swing a cat without hitting an overflowing acai bowl out of someone’s hand. I love me some acai, so I don’t really mind, BUT I love my beef and hot meals as well. Amazingly there is a place in Brisbane that will give you sweet refreshing smoothies and...

Stokehouse Brisbane

It’s getting really hot lately, isn’t it? Well, of course it is. You live in Brisbane. Don’t act so shocked. And yet every year we complain about the heat, spending our weekends in whatever venues are air-conditioned, and trying desperately to find cool breezes. Look, I’m going to make it...

There’s something quite magical about bacon. It’s cheap. It tastes good. You can use it in everything from breakfast, to pizza, to doughnuts. And now, you can use it in a cocktail too. This is 5th Element’s Barrel Aged Kentucky Breakfast ($17):   That’s bacon fat-washed Woodford Reserve and house...

Picnic at Camp Hill

I hate that dilemma where a dish like muesli or yogurt sounds appealing, but you’ve got a slightly raging appetite that morning and know that a bowl of nuts and oats just ain’t gonna cut it. Enter: the side dish. That’s right folks, I solved this problem that has plagued...
