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...

Habitat West End Opens

I love a good beard. Proof: D had very strict rules not to shave for at least a week prior to our wedding. I would have preferred longer, but he complained of itchiness. I guess not making him go any longer was my wedding present to him. So what do beards...

Chester Street Kitchen

We popped into Chester Street Kitchen recently for a quick afternoon slice of cake. What, you don’t do that? You’re crazy. Cake and a lazy afternoon go together like Vegemite and cheese. Cake is an especially suitable arvo snack when it’s something like this:   Red velvet! Chester Street also had a...

Cibo Espresso

                    I’m going to make this short and sweet. Cibo Espresso makes, hands down, the best coffee in Brisbane. Make that – the best coffee in South East Queensland, Melbourne, and Sydney. (The cannoli ain’t bad either) I would say “the...

Product Spotlight: Dello Mano Brownies

Now, look – I’ve told you before I’m a bit of a bad-ass baker. I don’t mean to brag, but I know my way around the kitchen. Let’s just say the rolling pin and I have an understanding. Despite my pretty excellent efforts in churning out cakes, tarts, and pies, there is...

Milk Review

One morning, after a bit of a hectic night, I stood in front of my open fridge and chugged a huge glass of milk. I have no idea why milk seemed like an ideal beverage at the time, but I do remember how damn refreshing it was. People, if you...

Movenpick

When I was in high school, my BFF and I used to eat a crapload of chocolate. We’d sort of go a few days with no sweets, and then – boom – good bye Mr Cadbury. We’d very calmly demolish a block, and then go on our merry ways to...
