Food means everything to me. Whether it be listening to my Nonno’s stories of his restaurant, learning tricks of the trade from my chef brother or simply devouring every dish my mum places in front of me, food to me is family and thus, food is love. With this love in mind, I endeavor to find the best restaurants and cafes in Brisbane and to share them with those I love: fellow foodies. I’m a sucker for a traditional pizza and the way to my heart is with a cracking cocktail. Feed me these and I’m yours.

A Stroll Down Cookbook Lane

November 8, 2014 |

“Don’t judge a book by its cover – unless it’s a cookbook … in which case, the more stains the better.”

I absolutely love this quote. When I read it I envisage the shelf in my family’s kitchen that is literally crowded with cookbooks. Whether they’re used solely for one recipe or for all of them, they’re all treasured and it is accepted by all that it is there, on that bookshelf, that they will stay.

But, like the quote suggests, you can tell which cookbooks are favoured above the rest due to the wear and tear that a commonly used cookbook cannot escape from receiving. Read More

Can’t Wait To Knock On The Door Of Fourth Wall

November 2, 2014 |

For the past month, I have been sober. It’s true. For those who know me, this is quite unbelievable.

I love cocktails. I love how skilled bartenders can take a hint or a word from you and turn it into a drink.

And I like the colours of cocktails. They’re pretty. And martini glasses. Good god, I love martini glasses.

So whilst going sober for 31 days does have benefits, I am missing my cocktails, which made me start thinking about my favourite cocktails and the cocktail bar I can’t wait to return to in November.

That cocktail bar is Fourth Wall. Read More

Melbourne Cup is fast approaching, and sadly, not all of us can afford a fancy lunch out, or have enough money on our cards to pay for all of those glasses of champagne that we so desperately desire.

Luckily, it can be just as enjoyable to host a Melbourne Cup lunch at home and will be infinitely less expensive.

Here are our top tips for hosting the perfect Melbourne Cup lunch. Read More

The Bagel Boys

October 19, 2014 |

It can be surprisingly hard to find a simple, affordable, takeaway lunch in Brisbane city. Sure, sushi is delicious, but sometimes we want something a little less healthy.

And yet, deep fried goods get passé very quickly. Potato gems are meant for football games, not a Friday lunch. Having a bloated stomach that continues into our Friday night out is not ideal.

A Friday lunch calls for something a little naughty, yet refreshing, that we can either savour or chow down on with reckless abandon. Read More

Nothing Short Of Excellence At E’cco Bistro

October 18, 2014 |

Brisbane’s food scene is constantly changing, with trends such as cronuts, tapas and burgers taking centre stage for brief spells before another fad comes along.

So when a restaurant is able to celebrate its 20th anniversary in such a city, it’s clear that it is of a higher standing than those around it.

E’cco is such a restaurant, with every element being impeccable; from the service, the food and the new interiors. Read More
