A few new reviews.
Sun 27th Jun, 2010 - by Lachie

Slack as usual, but getting better. I just thought I'd put a post on the front page to point to two new reviews sitting in the archives. The first was a visit to Melbourne Wine Room which we visited a few weeks ago. We were pretty pleased to finally get there, as Sarah and I are pretty big fans of Karen Martini's cook books (well the two we have at any rate).

More recently, Sarah and I finally made it back to the East-Brunswick stalwart Rumi. Although to be fair, we've lived here longer than they have. But damn that was a good night, check out the review for details.

And that picture above? That's just some bread I baked on the weekend. It was my first attempt at bread-baking, but I doubt it'll be the last. Watch this space.

Again - it's been too long.

  Sometimes life gets in the way

So a new podcast is up. It's number 25 from us, which is quite a milestone by my count. The problem is it may have dated slightly since we recorded it; the files have been sitting on my hard drive for quite some time, and it pre-dates the post directly below this one by a week. Basically, between preparing for my tropical holiday and various responsibilities at work the site and podcast has taken a bit of a back-seat.

But that's all over now.'s not. But I have edited and uploaded the podcast.

Coming soon(ish) will be a write-up of a visit to Karen Martini's Melbourne Wine Room, and maybe some recipes and more blog posts. Don't hold your breath for them, but they'll get here eventually.

A Week in Paradise
Mon 14th Jun, 2010 - by Lachie

I'm not sure when it happened, but at some point in the last two months Sarah and I made the decision that we needed a holiday. And not one of those phony baloney holidays where you're running around like some crazed tourist, and have to come home to recuperate. We needed a holiday where the most strenuous decision you have to make is if you swim in the sea or the pool, or which restaurant is cooking your dinner tonight. Enter French Polynesia.

Normally I would have written a sort of travelogue, much like I did when we went to the US last year. But to be honest there's not a lot to say. It was a magnificent week away, but truth be told it's probably pretty dull to hear about. We spent the best part of every day sitting under an umbrella on the beach reading. So I simply present some photos here...mostly to make you jealous.

Given this site is supposed to be food oriented I suppose I should discuss the restaurants we ate at in Moorea. They included Les Tipaniers, Le Mahogany, Le Sud, Te Honu Iti, and La Plantation. All of these places would organise transfers to and from the hotel for you, which was handy given it was a long way from any of them. The food was all of a reasonable standard, but dated. It's what we imagine French food was doing in around the 80s.

Also worth mentioning, are the Roulottes. These are food vans which set up in a large open area adjacent to the dock in Papeete, complete with tables and chairs, menus, and wait staff. Most specialise in steak with chips, or a vast array of Chinese (Chow Mein being particularly prevalent). The combinations of sights, sounds, and smells around the square was amazing. This is something I can imagine a great deal of Melbourne foodies loving.

Basically. It was an awesome week. I'm not sure I've ever been so relaxed. I thouroughly recommend it.
