OZEating’s White Christmas Sundowner

Yesterday I was lucky enough to win tickets from Cook Dine Travel to OZeating's White Christmas Sundowner, hosted at Malt Supper Club on Beaufort Street in Mt Lawley. The thought of an evening of food, yes was very exciting and it was shaping up to be a jam packed evening of tastings, sipping wine and meeting food producer's, all in the setting of a bar. Dressing up for the theme of the evening ...

Why would you want to enter the madness?  Well, because in the mall away from the traffic is a bustling food market scene. Perth’s Twilight Hawker Markets will run every Friday night during summer at ...

Venue Preview Evening at The Naked Fig

I was thrilled to receive an invitation for a hosted bloggers dinner at The Naked Fig Restaurant one Friday evening. The creative and fun invitation arrived by post in the form of a carefully packaged bottle of vincotto and went a little like this – ‘join us for the feast, you damn sexy beast, and, here’s a kitten!’ Uber cool I thought! The Naked Fig is situated on the serene Swanbourne Beach, 12kms from Perth’s ...

German evenings at The Rhein Donau Club

Celebrating a friend's birthday, a group of us spent a Saturday evening at the Rhein Donau Club in Myaree. The interior of the club is very much old school European and I doubt much has changed since it opened in 1959. Features of wood constructed booths, lanterns and alpine trimmings add to the European charm.  I notice an emblem carved into the dining chairs. Being non club members we paid a small ...

Mt Claremont Farmers Markets

The weekend farmers markets around Perth are lively and bustling during winter showcasing West Australian products. The fruit and vegetable produce is at its best and the hot market food is a great way to warm up. The markets are also a place to discover those niche products that are not available in supermarkets. This morning may have been cold but the sun was out and the sky a vivid blue, ...

Coffee Collections Evening 2013

On a cold and squally kind of night we headed into the City of Perth to attend a Coffee Collections Evening hosted by Coffee Roaster, Silvana and Fashion Boutique, Dilettante. The evening promised a celebration of the art of life through fine coffee and fashion in an intimate setting and I am delighted to say this was certainly achieved, if not more!  The evening unfolded in a lane behind Dilettante on King Street, known ...
