HOT: Adriano Zumbo at Books for Cooks, 233-235 Gertrude St, Fitzroy

We’re so lucky to have Books for Cooks in our city. This independent book store in Fitzroy is Australia’s only retailer specialising in books on food and wine. The five rooms of an old Victorian terrace typical of the area are filled floor to ceiling with densely packed books, from the popular to the obscure. […]

HOT: Easy As Vegan Pie Cooking Class, Milkdwood, 120 Nicholson St, Brunswick East

I think it’s pretty obvious from this blog that I’m not vegan. However, I do have an interest in vegan food and vegan cooking, in the same way that I have an interest in any food that tastes good. So when Carla from vegan blog Easy as Vegan Pie advertised that she was starting beginners […]

HOT: Miss Marie, 45 Beetham Pde, Rosanna

I’ve eaten a lot of satays both in Australia and in South East Asia and I’m so excited about discovering the spicy satay […]

HOT: Quartetthaus, Melbourne Festival, Ngargee Centre for Contemporary Art, Sidney Myer Courtyard 111 Sturt St, Southbank

Something very curious has landed in the courtyard of the Malthouse Theatre. What is it? It looks like a big wooden box. No obvious doors or windows but if you listen carefully you can hear the faint scraping of string instruments. It’s the Quartetthaus! The Australian National Academy of Music and lighting and design studio […]
