HOT: LuxBite, 38 Toorak Rd, South Yarra

A few months ago I lost my head at a charity auction for Twestival and placed an outrageous winning bid on a macaron tower by LuxBite. Fifty macarons, all to myself! *mwah-ha-ha-ha* There’s been a lot of hoo-hah about macarons in Melbourne and the consensus from the blogosphere seems to be that South Yarra dessert […]

HOT: Fitzroy Market, Fitzroy Primary School, cnr Napier & Chapel Sts, Fitzroy

As if Fitzroy didn’t have enough markets already, on the first Saturday of every month the carpark of Fitzroy Primary School sprouts the Fitzroy Market. What makes this market special?

HOT: Studio Ink, Hogan Gallery, 310 Smith St, Collingwood

My last event of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival for this year was to support a friend’s winery, Pyren Vineyard. Pyren Vineyard is a small scale producer of cool climate wines in the Pyrenees. For their newest wine, a Shiraz/Cabernet blend, they invited twelve artists to produce an original piece of art under the theme “Combinations of […]
