Coal River Farm – Fantastic food, and fun for the whole family (even Fido!)

Frogmore Creek, Clemens Hill Cellar Door + Kitchen, Wicked Cheese, The Coterie… all are making great strides at presenting the best of Tasmania’s produce of both an edible and quaffable nature! And if that’s not enough, there are the lesser known, yet just […]

‘Dank Burger’, a tale of lust, sweat and tears

Burger ChallengeBurgersFood from Tasmania

Trawling the streets of Hobart in search of burgers can be like blindfolded truffle hunting in the local dog park. Every so often you come across a real stinker!! Moonah is fast becoming burger central in the best way possible; Red Jaffa, Albert Road Store, Tabasco, Darcy’s…so it made perfect sense to add Gormanston Road Takeaway to […]

Laguna de los Tres Hike | El Chalten, Argentina

Argentina Hiking

The hike from Hosteria el Pilar to El Chalten via Laguna de los Tres is one of the most beautiful, relaxing, enchanting and refreshing hikes we've undertaken anywhere in the world! Pick your time of year wisely and you too can be surrounded by the red, gold and orange colours of the autumnal fagus. Spectacular!

Patanella, the little potato that Rose baked | Hobart, Tasmania

Cafe StyleFood from TasmaniaItalian

Patanella, or ‘little potato’ to those from southern Italy, has quite the story to tell. Even before it opened its doors it was generating interest, but not the interest that you would normally associate with a typical suburban cafe. Patanella was not just a new venture for aspiring restaurateur Rose Kokkoris, it was also her […]

Old bikes and big breakfasts at Moto Vecchia | Hobart, Tasmania

Cafe StyleFood from TasmaniaItalian

Don’t get me wrong, Vietnamese food is insanely good! Considering it took me 30 years to evolve from 2-minute chicken-flavoured Maggi noodles (often dry out of the packet…great playground snack!!) to ‘gourmet’ Mi-Goreng from the Asian food aisle at Woolies, I feel like over the last 30 days I’ve levelled up to the big time […]

Day 1 – Our Vietnamese odyssey begins!

Travel BruneiTravel Victoria

It’s that time of year again folks! That time when 11 months of hard slog is rewarded with four weeks of travel, food and much awkward frolicking under sun! I’ve decided to document our travels differently this year, to free myself up to enjoy the holiday a little bit more, and hopefully to keep the […]

A window to France at Le Provençal | Hobart, Tasmania

Food from TasmaniaFrench

My holidays as a young teen were most often filled with the detritus typical of an adolescent male. With neither an ounce of sense nor any concern more pressing than the provenance of my next meal, just occasionally, peeking through the venetians of time, would arrive the first glimpse of adulthood and what was to become a […]

Dinner at Mensousai Mugen Ramen | Melbourne, Victoria

Food from JapanFood from Victoria

A bona fide time-warp back to the icy, windswept streets of Asahikawa. This is, quite simply, the best ramen we’ve tasted outside Hokkaido! The menu is comprehensive, with a range of five different ramen dishes, including their signature ‘tsukemen’ ramen. Tsukemen was new to us, but the instructions on table were self-explanatory, instructing us how to dip […]
